DR toolkit for Metro clusters with IBM shark Storage?

I have gone through Disaster Recovery planning for Metro clusters Documentation and states for XP, EMC and EVA storage only. Is there any toolkit avilable for Shark storage?

Shalom,

You should only use supported storage with SG.

If your storage is supported but not listed, you might wish to change your storage plans.

It is supported for SG environment. Only thing is I don't see how to configure for DR automatic package switch over if primary data center failure happens.

Environemt:

IBM DS8100 Storage - two data centers with two node clusters - Storage with mirror copy.

There is no Toolkit for the IBM arrays and Metrocluster.
The IBM Shark arrays are known to work with SG, but are not officially supported with SG
