I have a few spare 2.5" HP SAS SSDs sitting around and collecting dust for about 2-3 years now. They were used for about 1 day in another project that ended rather abruptly.
I now have a need to store and run several large VMs, for development purposes. I would like to try to find some use for these drives, did some research, and found that running VMs on USB/Thunderbolt SSDs (I have a MacBook Pro) has suitable enough performance for my needs.
I'm having some trouble finding off the shelf sort of solutions for getting SAS to interface with either USB or Thunderbolt. I was hoping someone with a bit more knowledge on SAS would be able to provide a creative solutions for this problem. Ideally, a portable drive enclosure would be the most suitable, though I doubt such options exist.
I'm not looking for product recommendations, simply more or less on ideas how to convert SAS to USB/TB, even if it's non-conventional.
