San to Disk Backup MSA1000 Brocade 4gb SAN Switch

Hi

I have a C3000 blade enclosure with 2 BL460c servers installed into it. This connects to a MSA 1000. The Servers run VMWare.
I have a Storgage Works 1/8 Autoloader.

What is the best solution to backup the SAN ?

I am thinking of SAN to Disk backups, but the MSA1000 only has one Fibre card and the std. SCSI port. Am I able to upgrade the Autoloader with a fibre card, and connect to the existing BRocade switch in the back of the enclosure to perform SAN to Disk Backup. Or is there a simpler method available ?
