You've left out important information like the interface on the Array.. the MSA 2000 comes with either: SAS, Fiber Channel, or iSCSI interface.

If you are connecting the switch to a single server, then I would think you could do a direct connection between the server and array with any of those interfaces it would just act as a DAS device. (Direct attached Storage)
