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.

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!

Lease-to-own eliminates the expenditure of hardware replacement and allows you to pay off the server over time. Usually, this is much cheaper than leasing servers. Think of lease-to-own as credit without interest.
