Does the PE R515 have both SATA and SAS ports?

I'm fairly new to servers. My R515 came with 1 500 GB SATA Drive. Can I swap it out and plug in a SAS hard drive? Does it have the physical connection for SAS? If not how hard/expensive would it be to convert it to SAS?

To be more specific, I have an image for a RHEL 5 server from another R515 that uses SAS drives, whereas the one I'm transferring the image to has a SATA drive. Using clonezilla.

RE: Does the PE R515 have both SATA and SAS ports?

Our servers will run either SAS, SATA or SSD drives.  If adding drives, use Enterprise class drives and not consumer class drives.
