    hi everybody,
    does anyone know if there is a supermicro 2U server that offers dual HBA support for dual-port SAS SSDs?
    i found a couple of chassis, but they only support E5-2600 CPUs, i'm looking for refreshed xeon scalable single or dual setup.

    You will probably need to purchase the chassis and motherboard separately. You just need one with dual SAS expanders like the 216BE2C-R920LPB. If you want an inexpensive board, you could get a X11SPL-F, however any other ATX or EATX motherboard will work.

    Just FYI, chassis with dual SAS3 expander are usually very pricey.
