EqualLogic PS6000XV - Replication


I have a EqualLogic PS6000XV, and I am using vSphere 5.0.

I have installed the plugins into vCenter and I can now manage the EQL through the vSphere client.

I would like to make backups of my VMs/VMDKs or the EQL volumes outside my main EQL storage.

My question is, what do you guys recommend to copy this data ? I see that the EQL has a replication feature, but it only support another EQL. I dont have another EQL to get this data replicated.

My goal here would be to make a full weekly backup and a differential daily backups, or something like that.
