I am bit confuse so I am writing this to have some idea.I have a around 16 Production servers at third party data center.Right now servers are connected to Cisco SG 200-50 switch and it gives me 1 GBPS network in all servers.LAN port comming from Firewall/Router is also supporting 1 GBPS network.
I want my all servers within that netwok/datacenter to work on 10 GBPS network for that I am ordering new Broadcom 10GBaseT Network Adapters for servers but what about switch.Will existing switch supports 10 GBPS Ethernet traffic or I have to buy new switch.?
Which switch will be more suitable for this type of scenario ? I am not expert on networking/cisco so I dont want switch that involves more networking knowledge.I just want a switch in which I can just plug all my ethernet cables coming from server and that will give me 10 GBPS netwok.
The switch you have today (SG200-50) is a Cisco small business 1gbps switch. If you want to go to 10gbps and want affordable, then I recommend the Cisco small business SG500XG-8F8T switch. You will likely need 2x these switches to connect your 16 servers. I would recommend some 10gbps fibre modules and some patch cords to go with.

Copper 10g requires Cat6a or better for 100m - i.e. your existing copper Ethernet might not be suitable for 10g. However, if Cat6, it may support 10g up to about 55m.
