      It has eight SAS2 ports that require a add-on card called PIKE. From Asus's website:

      "ASUS optional PIKE provides slim-sized and flexible storage options. SAS RAID upgrades can be achieved directly via a unique slot—without sacrificing expansion capability. Also, KCMA-D8 supports the latest SAS2 6Gb/s storage through PIKE interface, doubling transmission speed of SAS 3Gb/s. ASUS PIKE 2008 supports RAID 0, 1, 10 and 1E; PIKE 2008/IMR supports RAID 0, 1, 10, 5 and 50; PIKE 2108 is a hardware RAID solution, which can support high performance RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 6, 50 and 60."
