Hi -

I am interested in feedback relating to the advantages of WANsync over DFS (in a disaster recovery context) including what lmitations DFS has, and what WANsync can offer. If anyone has any past practical experience of these products, that would be great.

Any feedback appreciated, as I am still new to this field.

DFS just replicates files and security, wansync can be used to replicate entire servers including systemstate and exchange\sql setups.

DFS is good for data replication and that is it - its not there for a true redundant solution or anything like that - basically purely data replication - and unless you run server 2003 R2 onwards, its really not worth using
