are the Production and DR SANs both connected to ESX server?
That's a good point "hanccocka"; Assuming they are in different sites, I assumed also that storage was separate, so I didn't suggest potential for VMotion (if there is appropriate licensing)...but if that is correct, then that is an option and mitigates everything else. :)
