HP MSA P2000 G3 SAN - Remote Snap Replication

Hopefully someone can help. I have a few questions that I'm unsure about regarding HP's Remote Snap option for the HP MSA P2000 G3.

Is it possible to replicate one SAN to another on a different subnet, I assume yes?
Does replication use block level differences (de-duplication), again I assume it would?
Does the replication require the use of snapshots?

And for Windows Server Backup does it backup the following okay?
Exchange 2010
SQL 2008

You can backup to another HP SAN using remote snap.  The following cookbook will help.  I don't believe that there is a way to quiesce Exchange or SQL but you will have a crash consistent copy.  You can do backups to a flat file and replicate that as well, depending on bandwidth.  Other SAN vendors offer software that integrates the snaps with exchange and sql but I don't believe that the P2000 is one of them.
