VPLEX vmware datastore size

What is the recommended VMware datastore size? We are thinking about creating a global distributed volume and presented to stretched ESX cluster.

What would be a recommended size of datastore? is 500GB too large, I am concern about time it take to synced up.

The vsphere datastor will be store virtual machines used to be protected by MirrorView lun for VMware SRM.

Re: VPLEX vmware datastore size

Our standard is 2TB for vmware datastores and yes, it took almost 8 hours across very fast dark fiber to Metro the distributed volume for the first time. Beyond that first time sync, we have not experienced any problems using that size.
