NAS for simple 2 node VMWare cluster

Hello,

I'm looking for inexpensive NAS or SAN (approximately 15TB RAW storage) product to support VMWare 2 node cluster for 5 Fault Tolerant VMs and 10 High Available VMs. Ideally it would be 1 VMWare Host+ Storage in one building and same combination in another building. We have 2 10 Gb Fiber links between buildings .There should be some kind of replication between storage boxes to provide DR. We are planning to use Dell R720 servers with SFP+ for fiber connection to storage. Any suggestion, comment would be appreciated.

Thank you

I was looking at max $20000 for both Storage units. Including any licenses for replication, management, etc. Would SAN replication be a feature of VMWare or it is native for NetApp? Is this a real time replication?
Thank you
Snapmirror is native to NetApp, and included in the Bundle software.

It's realtime, when you schedule it!

which could be every 15 mins, every 4 hours
