how to access XFS partition attached to ESXi 6?

I have a storage device attached directly to a DELL appliance where the ESXi 6 is installed. It is connected with SAS port and it was being used and formated as XFS.

I can see the from ESXi management UI > Host > Storage > Devices, but I am not able to access the content (files for example) inside the device. Is it possible to access the files inside the device from ESXi system?

Any comment is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately ESXi cant understand XFS, ESXi can understand only these types of FileSystems VMFS, NFS, VFAT, VSAN and virtual volumes.
