i belive this device is capable of iscsi and and Fiber. It depends on which configuration you buy and what your physical servers are capable of.

The iscsi connection can be a iscsi cable or a network cable which links the device to a server. The fiber channel would require the server to have a fiber card and a fiber patch would be used to link both devices together

As  says, there's more than one controller option. Hosts attach can be iSCSI, SAS, or fibre channel depending on what controller(s) it has. There are also 3 generations of them (although the 3rd generation has been renamed P2000 G3 MSA).
