Even if I need a Fscking NDA with Marvel, the support is 1A.
Also I have an Application Engineer from my Distributor which is an Ex-
Marvel-Employee... Fortunately he know, what he is talking about!

I have a Chinese Manufacturer which build 2"5 Dual-SATA Racks in the
size of a Floppy-Drive. I have disassembled it to use only one SATA-Disk
and put in the place of the second SATA-Drive the PCB.
So, you an get a compact Server including one SATA Disk in the size of
WxHxD 100x25x135mm. However, I will try to rebuild the outer frame
(maing it longer) to leave the 2 SATA drives and put the PCB behind the
SATA Drives. Also there will be enough place to use SO-DIMM.
This mean, I can use a standard 3U with up to 16 compact Mini-Servers
and each 2 SATA/SAS Drives.
Thanks, Greetings and nice Day/Evening
