Yes, The backup proxy is directly connected to the SAN using Off-Host backups to it's own local disks. We didn't purchase a license for the DR(off-site) Replica server, not sure if we need to or get benefits with that?

If you're going to replicate replicas, then you need to have license keys for that. The configuration is straightforward in this case - two on-host proxy servers should be deployed to both sites. This happens automatically once you add any Hyper-V host to the backup console.
The benefit of this approach is that replicating replicas allows you not to stress your production storage with two snapshots. Thanks!
