3PAR Replication Re-Sync using External Media

I currently have a 3par array that needs to be re-sync'd with a remote site (another 3par) The bandwidth is not enough to replicate the data in a timely manner.
HP's solution is to create a read-only snapshot and use a block level backup solution to do the backup of the source. Transport the data to the site, and restore
the backup at the remote site. Then have the 3par connect and sync using remote copy. I need to find a backup product that will give me a block level backup of the data
that I can place on a usb drive. All of the data is VMDKs. Both sites are running 3pars connected to ESXi hosts.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Any trial of Veeam, Nakivo will provide you with block level backups.

but you will need to restore at the destination using the same product.
