Synchronizing Multiple Large Files Over WAN / Internet
Posted on 2010-11-09
Hey All -
I've been asked to set up a share for multiple, large files to be shared by a few people over our WAN at 2 different locations. The files are graphics files which I'm told are from 150 to 200 megs each. They asked for me to allocate 50gigs so obviously expect to work on a lot of files.
What would usually happen is one of two things. 1) A server share be set up on one of the sites and have the users map to it. 2) Have a share set up on each local site with local users mapped to their local share. Meanwhile, all of the server shares somehow replicate with each other.
Even though we have a great amount of bandwidth, I'm trying to find a better solution to settings this up. If I were to go with step #2, I heard that there was a software which would replicate the shares only by differential and not complete files.
I've thought of Dropbox, but would like to keep it internal if possible - not to mention I would have to have a larger Dropbox account. We are running Windows 2008 and 2003 - all on a domain.
Any suggestions would be great - Thanks!
