switch NPIV and Blade

Hi there,

I have problems to communicate my SAN MSA 1000 and my Blade c3000 system. My provider are just recommending I buy "HP StorageWorks 4/8 SAN Switch - A8000A" because this have NPIV and it's compatible with the MSA 1000 but now I've got other doubt. I've got two servers DL380G4 with a Qlogic Fiber channel HBA (Q200, 2GB). Is this card compatible with the switch recommended?
