That's actually OSVHDCI belive it or not, offset VHDCI allows the connectors
to be put very close together, only thing that changes is where the screws
on the side connect to.

It's great for connecting external stuff because you can plug 2 or even 4 SCSI devices into one card (the Compaq/HP SmartArray controller has 4 VHDCI ports; now that's a lot of StorageWorks shelves).  Most of the VHDCI cables have a head that is tilted a little so you can plug in four connectors, bottom-to-bottom.  I'm pretty sure it's LVD, but be sure to check the SCSI icon just in case.
