The Question is:

The Answer is :

  Theoretically, yes.  In practice, the answer is unknown -- more
  specific details and empirical testing are almost always required.
  Details that can be involved include the interconnect:
    ATA?  SCSI?  USB?  Fibre Channel?  iSCSI?
  The particular platform?
  Please see the discussion of third-party disks available in the
  OpenVMS FAQ, as well as discussions of ECOs and storage capacities.
  These relevent FAQ sections can include:
    Third-party disk/tape/controllers/SCSI/widgets on OpenVMS?
    What is the largest disk volume size OpenVMS can access?
