We have ACEs not ASAs. When it comes to routing the ACEs are very limited.

I've added more info above which will hopefully show better when I've got now. Currently ACE2 is useless to us as the network link that it is connected to isn't used for the subnet as our colo won't handle the BGP for us. I'm trying to make it so that if ACE1 needs to be rebooted it can be without taking a site outage.

Correct, the end goal is a fully redendant path from the CoLo to the Cisco devices. This is a stop on the road to that goal until routers can be ordered and delivered. I've added more info above which will hopefully show better when I've got now.

comment SQL Server 2K/2K5/2K8 and Solid State Disks: Specific Optimizations?
RAID 0 shouldn't ever be used for a database server. If a single drive fails then the database is down until the disk is replaced and the missing data restored from tape (this includes the log).

comment Cost effective and frugal SAN solution for under $5000?
This is true, however a SAN with less disks may not be able to handle the IO requirements (which weren't stated, but implied). Monthly power bills are usually easier to get approved than up front purchase costs.

comment AD domains & DNS domains
If a team were to move from one site to another, then the machines would all be renamed so that they reflect the name of the site they are in. A rebuild probably wouldn't happen just a machine rename so that people wouldn't have to worry about loosing there data which is on local disk.

comment Blackberry Enterprise Server 5.0 and SQL server 2008
I didn't do anything special at all. Just created an account on a SQL instance on a different machine and pointed the BES installer do it. I was using BES 4, the 5 installed may look for SQL 2008 and block the install.
