Yes, if you get something like a 1U server with SAS card in it, and redundant power supplies, and you get an external chassis with redundant power, those are quite reliable.  

In fact, if you want, you can get multipath and multiple HBA's, and make it *more* reliable than using a fully integrated chassis.
