comment How the heck is http://to./ a valid domain name?
no -- what I find odd about that is that at the time I did that lookup tt was returning someone's home computer. rr.com is roadrunner, an end-user ISP. Maybe they also offer other services, but still a bit wacky to have an MX pointing to an rr.com address.

Why would they care if you setup your own DNS server? It isn't as if you're making anyone else use that DNS server.

comment Dual Controller SAN 8x1GBE or 4x10GBE Performance
It looks like the 6224 is a line-rate switch, so that's good. I've used Nortel, Extreme, and Enterays switches -- they often use exactly the same chipset but use their own software on the switch and there are huge differences in the quality of the software. Fortunately, if you're doing pure L2 you won't need to worry about that too much. If possible, get your vendors to each loan you the equipment they want to sell you and implement it with both and load-test both. Regardless, you want 10gig if you can get it.

I think the cisco 2960 is an oversubscribed switch with a total backplane speed of 32gb/sec. You really don't want to oversubscribe your storage network. There are plenty of switch vendors out there who will sell you something that is line-rate for all ports...
