I want to run Hyper-V virtual machines on my Dell E6400 laptop as fast as possible.
I currently use an external 7,200rpm 2.5 inch hard disk over E-Sata which is pretty good.
However if I want to 'push it to the next level', has anyone tried running virtual machines (over e-sata):
- from a 2.5 inch SSD external drive?
- from a 3.5 inch velocirapter external drive?
The SSD option is most convenient, but has the potential to 'wear out' if I am running a whole virtual machine (with Visual Studio for development) with lots of writes.
The Velociraptor will not wear out, but would be quite noisy next to my laptop.
