Used to be. Now it would be either a pcie3 x8 PLX card with 2x SFF-8643 connectors to 2x 4x SATA breakout cables, or on a mobo with bifurcation support just a simple pcie to 2x or 4x SFF-8643 adapter with 4x SATA breakout cables.. up to 16 sata lanes without any fuzz.If you only run 4 hdd, then sata might be fine. For people that want to connect 5+ hdd to their system, sas is really the way to go.
SAS is dead except for highly specialized enterprise stuff. Now you just breakout 4x pcie3 lanes into 4x SATA and so forth. 2 pcie3 x16 lanes = 32 SATA links.
