To answer your question, no you do not need to partition your hardware management to do what you want, just use zoning to logically separate the FA and host from the rest of the devices. VSANs are not a Brocade concept, but zoning will give the security you are looking for and if you are concerned about minimizing traffic, consider localizing the host and storage on the same asic quad.
