If the controller is compatible with Solaris/ZFS/etc, and you connect them using eSATA connections (and proper "eSATA" cables) it should work fine. Is there some specific incompatibility you are concerned about?

eSATA chassis are a bit pricey, esp if you want multiple devices in one case. There are some bit that are designed to help you "rewire" SCSI chassis to accept SATA drives, though I don't have any links at the moment...
