I am looking for a machine that wipes hard drives kind of like this that does SATA drives. I need to do no more than two at a time, but I would like the DOD wipe option (for enterprise purposes).

Anybody know of anything?

You can download a utility to invoke the drive's own Secure Erase command. This is a better erase than DOD overwrites. Here's the paper from the National Institute of Standards and Technology that says so:

I personally boot the Parted Magic disc to do secure erases. Remember to set a disk password first and remove it afterwards.
