Fibre card between 2 proxmox installations

Hi guys,

I am pretty new to this, so apologies in advance for noob question.

I have 2 proxmox installations, one that have all the harddrives, and one that have all the cpu and ram.
I am planning to put these in the same cluster, and would like for them to communicate through the fibre cards I have installed directly.

The cards are discovered as "Fibre Channel: Emulex Corporation Zephyr LightPulse Fibre Channel Host Adapter (rev 02)".
I would like to set up so communication between these two proxmox installations communicate on fibre, instead of the slow 1Gb network.

Is this possible to achieve? And how would I go forward achieving this scenario.

Thank you for any pointers.
