I want to efficiently clone a number of SATA harddrives. Instead of
purchasing an expensive dedicated drive cloning box, I wonder if there
are fast PCIe SATA disk controller cards which are able to directly
clone disks using appropriate software. Either ont-to-one or one-to-two
Note that I'm not talking about a RAID solution. This should be a
clone-on-demand solution, preferably hot swappable.
Thanks for comments and tips on this issue
Re: Muliple port SATA controller to clone drives..
Maybe you could get a box like this, and when it does a RAID 1 rebuild,
you get a copy of the original drive ? What I don't know, is whether
devices like this, write RAID metadata on the drives or not. You may
want to compare both drives, to the original image, to see if the
enclosure adds anything it should not be adding.
