HP LeftHand SAN P4000 connection to a Blade Server

Can I connect an HP LeftHand P4000 2-Node directly at the back of a C7000 enclosure via the HP Virtual Connect Enet Module or Flex 10GB?

...or...

Must I need an external Ethernet Switch like HP ProCurve in the middle? That means the LeftHand SAN must be connected to an External Ethernet Switch first, then to a Virtual Connect ENet Module located at the back of a C7000 enclosure?

You need a switch in the middle.
Remember "VC is not a switch"
Even if you could connect it direct - you could only have 1Gb bandwidth as to get more VC needs to have an etherchannel trunk presented to it.
