Lun replication between sites using iscsi VMWare , Compellent

Hello Experts,

 We are setting up new Compellent SAN for our VMWare Project. We want to utilize the LUN replication from one site to another for DR Purpose. we will be using iSCSI for this purpose.

Anyone has already configured this kind of setup??? if yes , can you please let you know how to proceed.

Thanks,

So, just replicate the LUNs between SANs, and then present these LUNs on the DR SAN to ESXi hosts.
