HPE 3PAR 7200 & 8200 Replication Suite

Dear Expert,

I am not sure about replication license suite. Actually I have one 3PAR storage (7200) and I have plan to purchase another one (8200). and what I want to do is, I want to place my current 7200 for DR site and place 8200 with DC site. 

1. if I do replication 7200 and 8200, is it compatible and recommended?

2. About replication license suite, do i need to purchase license for both 7200 and 8200? or Need only one replication license suite for one of them?

Thanks for your comments or advices.

You have posted to the wrong group.  This is the Comware Switch group.  You need to post this question in the 3PAR storage group.

Both systems need their own 3PAR Remote Copy license. I strongly recommend both systems are also licensed for 3PAR Virtual Copy.

Replication between a 7200 and 8200 is fine, as long as they are running the same Operating System version (3.2.2). If the 7200 is running an 3.2.1 (transition state), it will need to be updated to 3.2.2 within five weeks period.
