Any of you guys/gals replicating LIVE datafiles from one SAN to another in a remote location?

We're looking at using HP's CA tool to replicate LIVE datafiles across a WAN to another SAN. The replication is block based, so any block that changes on the primary LUN is immediately replicated to the remote LUN at the remote site.

Is anyone doing anything similar to this? Pros? Cons? I have a hard time imagining that this is a good idea but perhaps it is doable.
