server farm upgrade advice

We would like to upgrade our network that supports our server farm(about 25 servers made). Mostly web and SQL databases.

attatched is a diagram.

Currently we have 2 2811 routers running BGP. Each is connected to a different ISP; one via T1, the other via FastEthernet 100Mb.

The routers are then connected to an unmanaged switch(100Mb). The unmanaged switch is then connected to a Checkpoint firewall.

The firewall is then connected to a second unmanaged switch. The servers are connected to this switch.

As you can see there is no redundency besides the external routers.

Most importantly we would like to add redundency, flatten the network using MLS, increase the speeds, use vlans to seperate the servers, get rid of the checkpoint if possible.

Can anyone give examples of configurations and models.

Thanks

Re: server farm upgrade advice

Example configs would be impossible as every network is different. I suggest you read some design docs.
