HP P2000 G3 MSA FC Dual Cntrl SFF Arai (AP846B) and three servers HP DL360p Gen8

Hello! I have a disk array is HP P2000 G3 MSA FC Dual Cntrl SFF Arai (AP846B) and three servers HP DL360p Gen8 (646904-421) The array has two FC controllers (2 FC ports per controller = 4 FC ports). Servers have 2 FC ports. Can I connect the servers to the storage array without the use of SAN Switch by connecting each server is a single cable to one of the ports of FC disk array?

The P2000 G3 Fiber Channel controllers fully support direct connection to servers without a switch.
