[OmniOS-discuss] Optimal Server Configuration or Disk Controller Recommendations

I am hoping to build a server with 15+ drives managed in ZFS that will run a 1TB+ postgres database.
15-20 drive bays (ideally SFF/2.5")
JBOD disk controller ideal for running ZFS
In the past I purchased an HP Proliant DL380P Gen 8 but it had a "Smart Array Controller" that prevented us from hot swapping drives. It also seemed to haveless IO channels than might be good when running a box with 16 drives.
What would you recommend for either a complete server configuration or at the very least a disk controller for running this environment?
