comment LAN Redundancy - NIC, Cables + Switch?
What's the question? and why have the resilient links at a tenth of their normal speed, in the event of losing the primary link you're inherently in a congestion scenario. Use dual 10Gbps links to avoid this, you may also be able to use active/active.

comment Connecting SAS drives to Server which supports only SATA
Yes and no, you need a controller that 'speaks' SAS, there's no 'adapter' as such, but you could just buy a super-cheapo SAS controller for the job, they're not too expensive.
