Datacenter build - Network design needs checking

Hi Guys,

If anyone can find the time to check the network layout attached with this would be much appreciated. This design is regarding a new redundant DC being built (hypathectically only) but i need to know if i've connected this in the right way/ if its possible with the equipment listed.

Here is the equipment being used

Core/Aggregation Switches: WS-C6506-E x2

Access switches:  WS-C4948-10GE-S x3

Terminal server: CISCO2811-16TS x1

WAN FireWalls: ASA5540-BUN-K9 x2

Appreciate any and all feedback and aplologies for my lack of knowledge here

Paul

multie home each of the access switches and the firewalls to the VSS pair using dot1q etherchannel channge usingmultichassis ether channel MEC

configure failover between the firewalls and configure HSRP between the WAN routers for active/standby WAN access
