comment Linux mdadm software RAID 6 - does it support bit corruption recovery?
It is not universally true that performance will be noticably degraded during a RAID scrub. If the scrub uses all available system resources and is "dumb" then it will. But, all SANs and I imagine most RAID controllers will run the scrub at a lower or "nice" priority, adjusting the resource utilization dynamically so that it doesn't consume resources needed to maintain production performance.

comment I need a server or service that reroutes DNS requests
What happens if the first DNS server in the search list is down? In your setup where you have the same level of redundancy for all DNS zones you are fine because 1) DNS is highly available and 2) no DNS zone is more available than others... so if dev is down it won't try to resolve in prod, because both DNS zones are down. But in a situation where the DNS isn't available "all or nothing" then you might have some problems, correct?

comment DFS-R or WAFS for Syncing 1TB Files between remote sites
Look at a WAN accelerator like riverbed or netx to help speed this along, whichever solution you choose. Keep in mind that different accelerators excel at different types of WAN traffic. But, they're a good option for b/w limited sites.

comment Giving a VM access to a physical NIC on the host
ESXi "base" is free, and should be all you need. You can easily achieve this separation in ESXi by using two different vSwitches each using different physical NICs.
