SAN -- cheap "off site" replacement ?

Currently I have an old EqualLogic SAN at an off-site COLO that does nightly "replication" of changes that happen at my ONE on-site location.

I don't want to upgrade the SAN.

What service do you recommend to replace this "off-site backup" ?

What type of environment do you have? Since you have a SAN I'm assuming your using a virtual environment? Just so I understand, your using the replication on the SAN for your current offsite backup? Are you wanting to backup the SAN or just your VMs? Do you currently run any backup appliances such as Acronis?

I have an EqualLogic that I use for my primary SAN environment. But I use FreeNAS (http://freenas.org) for my backup storage solution. I use backup software inside my virtual environment and everything is backed up to this NAS. It also support replication so you can replicate this offsite. As long as you have hardware it is a great solution. It supports iSCSI so you can add it as a datastore.
