Lagom PersistentEntity in multy-datacenter production environment

As I understood, Lagom doesn’t support multy-datacenter (active-active) replication for PersistentEntity. I see that it was done in Akka and provided as a commercial addon (Akka Persistence across multiple data centres), but Lagom PersistentEntity is based on general akka’s PersistentActor. So, am I right? How it can be organised right in case of several active datacenters if I want to avoid massive inter-datacenter communication (so i don’t want to set up global akka cluster)? Are there any best-practices to deploy Lagom services for such environments? It also interesting to know about best-practices for active-passive case.
