Is EMC unity 300 supported by Reliable DR?

RESOLUTION

Reliable DR will take data from one location, and create a VM in a different location. The storage that is best used is one that is very fast (does not need special capabilities such as deduplication or replication). Because Reliable DR is sending VMware data to a VMware Hypervisor, the use Deduplication of the Unity 300 might be very useful. You will want to keep this function on if it will not impact running VMs when needed. I see that Dell/EMC Unity 300 has "deep integration with VMware". Please very that this solutions does allow VMs to run on it full time, and find out the IOPS that this system can support. If you choose to use Dell EMC Unity 300 as your storage choice for the Unitrends Backup virtual appliance itself, please disable the Unitrends deduplication (I can provide steps) and do not use hardware based replication (use Unitrends Backup Hot Backup Copy replication instead).
