My Blade server chassis comes with 2 x 1GB switches for Server VLAN and 2 x 10GB switches for IP storage.
I am trying to design which vSwitch should go to 1GB and which to 10GB..
Things like:
Service Console
VMs (virtual machines)

Please help..

As you have the luxury of 10Gb, i would run NFS and iSCSI over 10Gb.

Service console and vMotion 1G. It is best practice to run vMotion over a separate network if possible.

Now where you run the VMs, depends on how many VMs, size, and what network bandwidth they require 1 or 10G.

To maximise storage also ensure the storage is also attached at 10G

ServiceConsole (vManagement) -- 1G
VMotion -- 1GB
VMs -- 1GB ( I believe your other switch are GB switch, don't see huge improve if you use 10GB for vm NIC, speed is limited by other switch anyway)
