SAN Fiber Channel / switch ?

can I use an ProCurve Switch 4200 with optical modules to connect an optical fiber channel SAN to 3 vmware host?

or i need dedicated switch for SAN?

My SAN is a Eternus DX80 with 2 Fiber channel controller.

thanks too much.

Procurve is a network switch.

Data needs a dedicated switch, you can't mix and match network with data traffic.
