Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

As far as the SAN is concerned SQL Server database files are just files stored on the array.  It will transfer them just like it will any other file.

 

Typically SAN to SAN replication is used along with geographically distributed clusters in order to have a single Windows (and SQL) cluster built in two different data centers so that if one site fails the other site stays online.
