New to Nexus switches. Looking for advice on QSFP breakouts and storage configuration

All,  

 

I'm new to Nexus boxes and I've been asked to put together a list of gear to implement two new storage solutions on our network.  Our Nexus platform is two 5672UP switches with NX-OS higher than NX-OS 7.0(1)N1(1).  Each storage unit to be integrated has 4x10G SFP NICs for a total of 8 NICs on each or 16 total.  I was considering using 4x QSFP-4SFP10G-CU3M breakout cables on the 40G ethernet slots.  

 

Once setup I want to be able to port channel these ports and also use trunks as well.  Just looking for confirmation my idea is sound before I order the breakout cables.  Thanks.
