solaris 10 and solaris 11 lists sun blade 2000 as supported system, so
you can choose disk controller for your disks
using solaris 10 / solaris 11 HCL [1] query page for "disk controller"
[2] , and try to find out does your choosen controller would be
supported by linux kernel 4.12 (latest debian unstable / sid kernel),
should be quite cheap on "IT flea market" or on ebay...
