Dual Proliant DL20 and MSA1040 configuration

Good day,

I am seeking some best practice advice for best SAN configuration for a single MSA1040 12LFF and dual DL20 servers.

We have no option to use other servers due to limited rack depth, also cost is a factor for this specific AV application.

I was planning to use P441 smart arrays in the servers, and use the 1040 with dual 12G SAS controller, however my SAN experience is only with a single host, and I heard SAS may not be ideal for this.

Any advice on appropriate 1040 and DL20 controllers / connections would be gretly appreciated.

Thanks !
