a customer asks to me for a complex solution, based on this feature:
10 remote notebooks have to synchronize in background, without action by user, with a central file system on a server exposed in internet (or in vpn).
Synch should be intelligent (to preserve bandwith) trasparent (in real time or scheduled) powerful (can i set limits and filter about files , something like YES .docx NO .avi) affordable (control on these limits and log or alerting).
Users can go on with their jobs like every day, putting files in a predeterminated path and no other (no wizard, no windows...)!
After this, a web application can query this server's file system portion, but this is not a problem....
In our opinion, which is the best way to develop a similar solution?
Can i use a personal application to set filter, then perform a traditional synch with a software like Allway Sync...?
Have u ever read about a similar need?
Sorry for my english, please ask me for details...and help me!
