My question concernes local storage on my ESXI Servers. I have two Dell Poweredge C2100 Servers with Dual Procs, 128GBs of Memory, Perc 800 Raid controller and set up with ESXI 5.0 on a 600GB Velociraptor and the 12 Drives set up with 3TB drives with Raid 5 giving me 30.00 TB of Drive space. I have two of these servers and presently they are configured Identically. I have a third Server set up the same except only 24.5 TB in a raid 5. I have Server 2008 R2 installed on the third which will host Vsphere Center and the 24.5 TB will be used for data storage on our network. I have several 5 Bay Q-NAPS and two large external drive arrays with Linux Redhat Enterprise ( 27TB's ea) which I will use for NFS shares and storage respectively.
My question is this:

I don't want to use HYPER-V but only VMWARE. Any suggestions will be welcomed guys! Hate to lose all this storage space as we desperately need it for archiving. Can I connect to this local storage from Viclient or ESXI and how can I make it available on the Network?
