File server solution for satellite office
Posted on 2008-10-30
Hi All my company has recently branched out with a small satellite office of about 20 users. The location is such that their ISP service is shoddy, so I have 3 ADSL lines running into a Tri WAN router that keeps them up and running for the most part. I also have a site to site VPN setup, and an Active Directory domain structure with a DC in the external office.
The problem is file server access from the SO to the CO. File access is very slow over the VPN. I need a solution that would allow both offices to work on the same file with some sort of change control. I looked at Double Take, but that is more of a disaster recovery solution. I have a Terminal Server setup in the CO for them to use, but when they lose service on all 3 ADSL lines, which happens more than it should, they obviously cannot do any work.
What we need is some sort of virtual file that is located in two locations and any change is synched between the two.
Single Active Directory domain 2003 native
3 domain controllers one in satellite office
1 file server in CO.
Site to site VPN.
T3 in CO, ADSL x3 in satellite office.
