Replicating files over and enterpise.

Our company is in a distibuted environment in terms of File Storage.  We use MS Windows 2003 on our file/print servers.  Does Microsoft have a product that allows for the replication of files accross file servers?  We have Documentum and Sharepoint, but neither of these offer what is necessary, at least at a price that won't bankrupt a company.

So, to summarize, I am interested in knowing if we can have a file created and managed in one location and then that same file and associated folder structure replictated over to another destignated file serve.,
