Fibre Channel drives... I just dont get it?


where are the host adapters for them?
The socket on the back is 21 pin copper, not optical?
is there an adapter of some sort to make it compatible with scsi?


how would you like your very own X15 18.2 gb for $50.00 on Ebay? Sound like good motivation to figure out the answers!

There are an assortment on these sites:

As you can tell from the pricing, "If you have to ask..." You'll need enclosures and cabling as well. The enclosures will have the adapters for the optical interface.

Ditto that. Drives are relatively cheap.
