External Storage and the Smart Array 6i

I have replaced a "beige box" server with a ProLiant 380DL. The server had some external storage provided to it via a Promise UltraTrak 18100. I have a few questions regarding this:

Will the SmartArray 6i handle the multiple LUNs the Promise array serves up?
Is connecting the Promise up to the Smart Array even a good idea or should I buy a separate dedicated controller for the external storage? If so, what controller is recommended?

Many Thanks.
