is it possible to share a Windows NTFS volume with a Hitachi 9570 SAN.

What I would like to do is this:
I have a SQL server backup dump of 600GB and transaction logs going to a SAN LUN on my SQL server.
I would like to attach my backup server to the same LUN and backup the SQL dump and transaction logs.
With this method none of the backup traffic is going across my LAN.

Anyone know if this solution is feasible? Or is anyone doing something similar I'm open to suggestions.
