Is it possible to setup a server with a host-based adapter (HBA) directly to a Dell/EMC CX3-40f disk-array enclosure (DAE) which only has fiber connections, taking the storage-processor out of the equation? Would something like Openfiler have this capability? Can it be done without Openfiler?
Note sure how the drives could be provisioned for RAID but even having direct access to the drives could be useful for OpenStack or similar.
For example, have a host with two dual-port fiber-channel (FC) cards, connect to four-SPE's therefore giving that host access to 60 drives (15/SPE).
