Help OpenStack connect with HPE 3PAR

Hi everyone, I just researched on OpenStack and want to build a production OpenStack environment as instructed at https://docs.openstack.org/openstack-ansible/latest/user/prod/example.html, the system included 1 deployment host, 3 infrastructure hosts, 1 log host and 1 storage backend. Instead of using NFS as a storage backend in the instructions, I will use HPE 3PAR 8200 via the Fiber Channel interface at https://docs.openstack.org/cinder/train/configuration/block-storage/drivers/hpe-3par-driver.html

In the above network, I plan establish a physical connection of 3 infrastructure hosts (Cinder running on these 3 machines) connected to HPE SAN via managment network with 1Gbps and 2 compute hosts connected to HPE 3PAR 8200 via FC 16Gbps. Does the system work?

Thank you for your advice,
