RJ45 will only work at 1GbE. Fiber can do 10GbE.

Any cable with the right connectors will work.

The cables won't matter. This shelf is a 3Gbps SAS shelf/controllers and backplane, so speeds will downshift to that when connected to a 6Gbps HBA. If you put SATA disks in the shelf, you may end up with 1.5Gbps link speeds on the disks. No idea if this enclosure will work as a JBOD. You haven't given details on your end goal.

Okay, that's not enough info. What are you seeking from this setup? Nothing in this setup is 12Gbps SAS. The unit you're connecting to is an expansion shelf meant to be connected to an HP SAN, not as a JBOD to an HBA. Why are you doing this?

That's an MSA2000 drive enclosure (AJ750A). It's not a SAN, but just an expansion shelf. It's also very old. Can you please provide some specific details on what you're trying to do?

You will need a transceiver for both switches.

For 10GbE, you will need fiber cabling and transceivers on both ends.

This depends on a lot of variables... your hardware setup, the filesystems in use, even the mail software being used. Can you provide some details?
