I need a recommendation regarding the (maybe physical) separation of a production environment (first OS on a sata hard drive) from another (second OS on a sata-hdd) - a bonus would be, If the first environment (production) would be unable to gain web-access (actually a completely different question).
What comes to mind first, is getting another machine to separate the drives: that is not possible.
What I need is a reliable method to seperate the two hard drives, so theire OSes can never know of the other HDD.
I heard of SATA-Power switches catching fire, destroying harddrives etc. Needless to say, that's not what I'm aiming for..
My first method of choice was using an "alternate frame" (to quickly swap hard drives from a 5,25" slot. But I was told SATA-Drives can only be re- and disconnected like 50 times. Is that right? Sounds like it's not.
Another method I was thinking of, is just opening the case each time, pulling/reconnecting plugs and pulling/reconnecting the ethernet cable. Also, needles to say, that's not quite comfortable.
