It's a standard 1U power supply with a custom adapter. You can see it 
better here:


I use a SATA to IDE adapter, then an IDE to UW-SCSI adapter, then an 
UW-SCSI cable and terminator, then finally a 68 to 50 pin adapter.

The previous drive was a Samsung SSD, but I think that constant, non-stop 
swap use wore it out. This was the smallest new spinning rust drive I 
could find.

SCSI2SD would work for a while, but, again, swap usage would wear out an 
SD card in no time, I'm sure.
