direct connection between MSA2040 and MSA2050

hi Community

for replication purpose, I should do a synchronous replication between MSA2040 and 2050 ,unfortunetly my client hasn't the budget to purchase a switch SAN 

it's possible to have a direct cabling over FC between MSA2040 and MSA2050

so if not ,could you suggestion me a solution for this replication 

please note actually that the two ESXi in cluster are connected to MSA2040 and I should integrate the MSA2050 and replicate a virtual replication as the  virtual volume are configured in MSA2040 

 

please your help

Refer Page no 13 of below technical Paper,

https://h20195.www2.hpe.com/v2/GetPDF.aspx/4AA1-0977ENW.pdf

Two arrays are required. All arrays should have all reachable ports configured and connected via a switch; direct connection between systems is not supported.

 

Hope this helps!

And of course, the MSA did not Support a Synchronous Replication.
Only asynchronous is possible.

Take a look at this:
