Hi Bas,

I have an external eSATA ICY box connected via Thunderbolt using a LaCie eSata to Thunderbolt converter. The ICY box allows you to slot in 2.5 or 3.5 SATA drives. This means I can swap cheap naked SATA drives with various Systems installed on them. The downside, it requires a reboot to run another system. The upside is the systems do not use space on my internal drive and the performance is that of a built-in drive. I also have 10.9 installed on a VM :-).

I run a 10.6 Server VM so that we can continue supporting older OSes with our externals.  That might be a better option if you need to support older clients,  especially since 10.10 is right around the corner as well.
