How to replicate LUNs from one UNITY SAN to another?

We have a UNITY 500 in our Sydney DC and a UNITY 450 in our Melbourne DC and the only connection between the 2 DCs is via the WAN. Am I able to replicate LUNs natively from one to another over the WAN? If so, do I have to configure iSCSI connections?

If the SANs cannot natively replicate across the WAN, can it be done with just iSCSI?

Re: How to replicate LUNs from one UNITY SAN to another?

yes you can easily do this with Unity native async replication

See the Unity Replication Technologies white paper for more info

no this doesnt require ISCSI configuration

Differently from VNX on Unity both the file and block async replication use plain TCP/IP

Whereas on VNX the block async was done with either FC or ISCSI
