I have a standard SATA drive which I want to access over the network. I have an available 1Gbit/s port on a switch.
What is the minimum hardware which will allow me to connect this SATA drive to the network and allow a single host on the network to speak SATA with drive at close to 1Gbit/s speeds?
I have been looking at NAS solutions, but what I have found so far would have the NAS act as a file server rather than simply encapsulating the SATA protocol in Ethernet or IP.
Is there a piece of hardware, which will just provide power to the drive and encapsulate the SATA protocol in Ethernet or IP?
