I currently have 3 ESX host servers that is managed by vCenter.  All the host servers currently  use local storage.  I would like to replicate this environment to another site at a new location for disaster recovery.  What is needed to use VMware Site Recovery Manager?  Do i need to use SAN's?  What other options are there replicate vm's to a DR site?
