SCSI is definitely better. (usually)
The major differences would be that the SATA drives are not really meant for High Perfomance, High Utilization, always on environments. They spin slower than SCSI drives and have a lower tested Duty Cycle that determines it's MTBU/MTBF.
SCSI drives generally spin faster and have higher reliability rating. As for performance, you might not notice much difference in a 2 drive setup since the Dl360 only has 2 slots for drives.
In larger systems like an MSA20 vs. and MSA30, you would definitely notice (or should) some significant perfomrance incease using SCSI vs. SATA.

especially when the number of drives is low (2 mirrored drives in dl360) you profit from scsi.
if the disks are a bottleneck the money for fast processors is not well invested.

SCSI has 360 MB/s
So, if you want performance, you should choose SCSI.
