I have chosen your answer as accepted. Final clarification: if the bottleneck is USB 3.0, then I will get identical performance whether I use an SSD through USB as I would a spinning 2.5" SATA disk via USB, right?

I can build a box, but for machines that need to be portable (or accessible at any point in the development stage independent of where I am), what would you recommend? I'm thinking an SSD via USB, but I am not sure what would be the physical bottleneck; the speed of the SSD or the speed of USB. If the limitation would be USB, then would it be any less advantageous to just go with a spinning disk?

It definitely helped! I will mark it as an answer soon. Thank you very much so far! However, I do not work at home, so I would need an internet connection. This is not a problem in this use case, but if I am developing locally and I do not have an internet connection (or it is unsecure) I would not want to remote into the machine(s). This is where the portability factor comes in.

That's definitely an option! Is there anything a bit more portable? I was considering something like this though if I remote into them, but that requires an internet connection.

Yes. I want to do some high-intensive operations without burning out my primary SSD any faster than I have to, but I want the flexibility. Primarely looking for a "best practices" or "I do this" sort of answer.
