D3700 adapter suggestions


We recently purchased a D3700 to try out for our storage solutions.  I will be testing it in an ML350P Gen8 with 2012r2, and wanted to know the most flexible adapter to host it.  I'd like something that we could use in this system with a traditional RAID 10 configuration (probably full of ~500gb 12gbps SAS SSDs), as well as the option of using it with dl380 g10 servers and possibly with S2D.  Is there an adapter that would suit those needs or am I better off exploring those two situations separately in regards to a host adapter?
