two different domains

Hi Experts,

I have an existing and running VMWARE environment with NETAPP storage.
The storage is connected over 10G with twinax cables.
As SAN switches I use now two CISCO NEXUS 10G models, redundant.

Now I have a special challenge.
I have another network with another domain in my datacenter. They need new hardware and they need to upgrade from WIN 2003 to 2012R2.

Is it possible... reserve a volume on my netapp just for the other network, lets call it NEW network ? have two different networks connected to just one storage ? divide the each traffic from each other on the same storage hardware and the SAN switches ?

Now I use for cabling TWINAX, and I think here is a limit of distance, when I connect over 10G right ?

What are your recommendations ?
