Active SFP+ Twinax 10gbE between Cisco Nexus and HP Servers

We are in the planning stages of a new Nexus 7009 Core switch, and are trying to verify compatability of using 10 meter SFP+ Active Twinax cabling (Cisco part: SFP-H10GB-ACU10M) to connect the core to server HP servers with NC552SFP 10gbE cards. I know that the cards support SFP+ twinax, but I can't find any information about support at the 10m length which requires the active twinax  rather than passive. Does anyone have experience wiring HP servers for 10gE at this distance?

Have similar dinstances active on HP server and HP 5800 switch, without any errors on ports.
10 m must be possible with Nexus as well.
