It looks like THIS Addionics PM (Port Multiplier)
will create an external RAID Enclosure that is
bootable via eSTATA or USB even when using
it as a RAID box that holds 2 or 4 Hard drives.
HERE'S the enclosure. HERE are the RAID types
supported: RAID 5+S, RAID 3, RAID 0 w/2 Drives Striped,
RAID 0 w/4 Drives Striped, RAID 1 w/2 Drives, BIG2 w/
2 Drive Concatenation, BIG4 w/ 4 Drives Concatenation
and my favorite RAID 10 (Mirrored-Striped).

And last but not least, an inexpensive
eSATA to USB 3 adapter.

The enclosure with PM is under $200 (USA) and
with the eSATA to USB 3 adapter its a little over
$200 total. Looks like affordable and somewhat
future proof.

Philip, I value your opinion!!!!! What do you think?
