SFP+ cable and SFP Ports compatibily

We have a HP 1810-24G Switch (J9450A), which has two SFP uplink ports. We are in the process of buying a new SAN for our server room which has SFP+ ports. I was thinking of buying a couple of X 242 Direct Attach Cables (J9283B), to connect the SAN to our HP switch. Not having done anything with SFP+/SFP i am not shure if this configuration would actually work, it's not listed in the support matrix. Dear community, would this actually work?

No, it wont work since the DAC is 10G SFP+ and the 1810 has 1G SFP uplinks. If the SFP+ ports on your SAN supports 1G you might be able to use a SFP 1G DAC, otherwise you'll need another switch with 10G SFP+ ports.
