Can you link to the specific SAN model/type you're interested in using? There are many caveats that come with HP P2000-style storage arrays. How do you plan to connect? iSCSI? Fibre? SAS?

The D2700 is S.M.A.R.T. aware, in addition to being able to report on SCSI Enclosure Services (SES) details, but understand that the use case here is narrow. I suggested that SATA timeouts could cause issues with performance on a shared expander backplane, like that in the D2700. However, that's more likely to be a spinning media issue; not a problem with an SSD.
