It's just for running backup.

comment How to configure this network setup
Would a GS108 (8port GbE) switch be adequate? Or would I need to use something higher-end? I can't seem to justify spending 300 bucks for a rack switch for something that will only contain 5-8 physical connections at the most. (By justify, I mean "explain to the boss that we need to buy a 24port switch that has server-grade performance to connect 5 physical devices")

Our 48port specs sheet lists it at 96Gbps.

DroboPro is only connected to the one server. We then share folders for users to map on their workstations. I have another DroboPro for another server, and is replicated using DFS. I basically want data between the two drobo's to be on the private VLAN as well as our third server that runs backups. This way any DFS replication and backups aren't on the same traffic as user data.

In response to MDMarra... So 8 drives connecting to a single eSATA port would be faster than through iSCSI? Also, how can I tell if the switch isn't being oversubscribed? I believe I can priortize as it is a smart switch. I have to contact Netgear to verify.

comment How to provide high availability with two servers
We won't upgrade to 2012 for another year at the very least. Right now we have 2008 R2 Standard. I don't think it supports failover clustering. Only Enterprise and higher does. I could be wrong though. Also, Sage doesn't seem to let us keep the company data on a network drive unless the program is installed there as well. So something like DFS wouldn't work either.
