Need your opinion on designing ACI with native FC

Please note, I am no where close to be a SAN expert/specialist...

 

Here is the scenario:

Customer has two DCs (Primary and DR). Both are using FC SAN for storage (Brocade 7800). Customer wants to migrate to ACI, ACI Multi-Site particularly. The connectivity for data traffic to ACI is easy but I am trying to figure out how to connect the Brocade 7800...and I think I have options below which I would appreciate your input/critic.

 

Option 1: Have customer purchase extra leaf switch(es) to have NPV enabled for FC in each DC.

Option 2: Connect the FC to ISN devices (NX-OS).

Option 3: Not connect SAN to ACI but using dedicated SAN switches parallel to ACI...

 

Let me know. Thanks!
