Looking for a good 16 port HBA or RAID controller

My 16 port Areca raid controller died last night, so I am looking for any recommendations on a replacement. I am located in Canada and would prefer not to have to spend hundreds of dollars since this is for my backup, backup server. The card obviously needs to be compatible with unRAID, support JBOD and support up to 6TB SATA drives and beyond if possible. I already have breakout cables from the existing card.

 

Thanks

Wound up getting a pair of Dell Perc H310's for $50 CAN each, will flash them to IT mode and I'll be good to go.

it's a plain HBA, so no need to flash, it should work out of the box.
