Perhaps in the HP curriculum you could have access to a SAN, but to my knowledge, there's no virtual appliances out there. There are some open source SAN products you could use, like Openfiler and Freenas that can get you up to speed with the concepts, but HP's interface is much different.

you can play with OpenFiler, and OSS filer distribution, that supports iSCSI. With this and some linux or windows guests, you can play with iSCSI in a virtual enviroment.

Playing with Fibre-Channel requires corresponding hardware, like fc-switches, disk-array, HBAs, cables etc.
