i don't think there's any "performace reasons" on SCSI vs SATA drives; but 
note that the AoE 'server' (vblade) is open source, you can build your own 
storage with any kind of hardware, RAID and/or volume management, and export 
it via AoE.

the Coraid's 15-drive box is just a P4 SuperMicro mainboard, with two 
SuperMicro 8-port SATA cards on a 3U SuperMicro case, and an IDE flashdrive 
with Plan9 OS and its own software.  nothing hard to replicate...
