DL380 expansion to D3700

Hi All,


I may have not looked properly or in the right places but I'm finding it difficult for a straight answer.


Example situaiton:


I have a DL380 G9 with 24 SFF 10K SAS drives, I've now run out of space and need to expand the current array.


Is it possible to connect the 24 SFF internal drives to a P822 and then connect multiple D3700 disk shelves and create one big RAID10?


I need the performance so creating a separate array isn't ideal,  plus if I have run out of space on my SQL DB that's sitting on the internal array it makes it a bit difficutl to expand it when I have had to add a separate array.


Thanks for the help.
