comment SATA Raid 10 vs SAS Raid 1
Would I used Linux md RAID in a production environment? I'll point out that your could also do RAID10,f2 with the 4 SATA drives. That might do well. You really should buy both sets and test them, the return (if you can) the drives you don't end up using. Also, remember my warning about small random writes. the 'f2' part of the setup means your disks are seeking a bunch more for each write.

Are there error messages either on the console of the vmrun machine or in the log file of the ESX machine?

comment SSD redundancy via HDD
drdb is often used to get RAID1-like mirroring behavior, I would put it closer in the block-level mirroring camp than replication.

comment How to determine the interface name for 2 Ethernet adapters with 8 ports?
No, ifconfig will not set a particular physical network card to be eth0. In order to use ifconfig, the device names are already set.

I don't know how CentOS 5.6 handles this, I know with version >=6, udev does this just like I mentioned in my answer.

comment Is Hyper-V a real hypervisor
-1. According to Wikipedia, that's not true. Even though Hyper-V looks like the hypervisor is running on a 2008 OS. It's actually a virtualized 2008 instance.
