BE3600 Appliance -> BE2012 VRAY
I currently have a BE3600 appliance sitting in Site A working pretty much flawlessly, however I need to create a solution that will allow me to replicate the DeDupe storage across the WAN to a remote site.
My plan is to get a VRAY install setup on Site B, which would be linked as a managed BE server for the BE appliance (will need to purchase the CASO option for the appliance), and then have it replicate the DeDupe storage across the WAN from the Appliance -> VRAY install.
I just want confirmation that this is possible and has successfully been done before, prior to purchasing ~4K in hardware upgrades (drive mainly), as well as a $1200 CASO license for the BE Appliance.
If the above is a valid solution, which server should become the CASO to properly do the Optomized dedupe across the WAN? I believe documentation is leading me to believe that the VRAY install should get the CASO option, but would like some advice regarding this.
