HPE VSA disk type and disk size


I have a Synergy frame with four SY 480 Gen9 blades and a D3940 module. I currently have 24 1.2TB HDDs in the module. The blades are all esxi hosts and I would like to be able to share the storage with all of them. So my questions are;

1 - Can I share storage amongst all blades without HPE VSA or do I need HPE VSA?

2 - I know HPE VSA is EOL, any other way I could share the storage with my ESXI nodes?

3 - If I have to do HPE VSA, does each blade have to have the same disk size and type? I ask this because i am planning to add more disk to the storage module and would like to get larger capacity disks.

Thank you for your answers in advance.

You can use VMware vSAN to accomplish the same thing as done by VSA
