Disaster Recovery of Exchange Server

We are setting up an off-site DR location of our exchange server. We few options either convert current exchange server to virtual server in vmware environment or restore to another physical servers.
Currently environment:
- edge transport server in DMZ
- exchange with role mailbox server, Hub transport, client access & Unified messaging
- Internal AD
- mailbox storage groups stored in SAN

I am wondering any precautions need to be addressed while restore from Acronis imaging to either physical/virtual to test out in DR environment.

Thanks Karthik, Novell platespin is a great tool. Any idea how to simulate the physical to virtual like edge transport server located in DMZ in VM environment using vmware? For exchange server, can i store storage groups in external HDD via USB (to simulate SAN)?
