Server/file replication software for multiple websites

I understand for Microsoft IIS, clustering service is a way to go, but I'd rather avoid the hassle and buying expensive quorum drive. Is there any software that can automatically replicate the script, settings and html files from one IIS server to another over LAN?

The best one that I know of is Double-Take from NSI software (see http://www.nsisoftware.com/pro/doubletake/).  It's not cheap, though.  You can see a flash demo here: http://www.nsisoftware.com/pro/product/.

This is interesting technology but I'd be scared to use it for my SQL server, just wondering how does it conserve the file format integrity for my database file if it simply moves the bytes around. So anyways, the problem is it's expensive I'm sure there is a cheaper option that operates above the OS. I'll split points at the end.

Youre right, very expensive.  I'll ask around and see if anyone can suggest a cheaper alternative.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Here are a couple of other options:

Availl Replication (www.availl.com) - this was mentioned by a friend who uses it and is happy with it.  I'm not sure it's suitable for an SQL server, though.  There is a free trial.

Another option to consider: PeerSync (www.peersoftware.com) - claims to be suitable for databases.  No direct experience, so you want to check it out.  Also offers a free trial.

Yeah I'm not using it for database. I'm just staying that double take claims they can do database and I have some skepticism about that. I'll take a look at the software you brought up tomorrow. Thanks!

Make sure you stay skeptical when you check out the other two    :-)
