The fiber SAN is ISCSI, or Fiber-Channel?
If it is ISCSI, you can use C3750-12G 12-port with GLC-SX-MM for the fiber ports and GLC-T= for the copper server ports.
If Fiber-channel, you might need to go with a Nexus 5010 with FiberChannel module, and the appropriate SFP connectors. With the Nexus, you can use a 10G NIC on the servers...
