P2000 G3, DL580G5 using SAS

I have two (2) HP DL580 G5 with four (4) QCore processor per server.

I have a limit of budget then I I hope to deploy a SAN infrastructure
with SAS connectivity.

I would like to acquire a StorageWorks P2000 G3 to deploy a SAN
infrastructure for data and apps using VMware vSphere Essentials+ Kit.

My dream is to connect the two servers HPDL580G5 to the P2000 G3 using
the HBA SC08e (PN SC08e 6Gb 2-ports Ext PCIe SAS HBA PN 614988-B21)
but unfortunately I have seen on the quickspecs this adapter is NOT
declared compatible with my servers.

Is this HBA SC08e really NOT compatible with HP DL580G5?

I (re)submit the problems asking if there is any HBA SAS 6Gb (a brand

different from HP is the same) compatible with HP DL580G5 and

Storage Works P2000 G3 SAS.
