Nas with eSata JBOD


I've been thinking of building a NAS out of the up squared but few question that people here might be able to answer.

I'm planning to use an eSata JBOD enclosure (not sure which yet) because accodring to few forums i read it's better to use esata over usb3 for stability and hard disk feature support.

Though, i'm not sure which way i should go about it. It seems that the computer needs to support SATA multiplication (can't remember the exact term) to be able to run multiple SATA drives out of a single port.

If this is possible with the up squared, what would be the way ? Get a sata to eSata cable and use the on board sata port or use a pcie card that has an eSata port ?
I'm looking for stability rather than performance.
