Replicate Data between two office using NAS
Posted on 2013-02-07
I'm looking for a solution to synchronized my data between two office. Currently, I'm using DFS with Windows 2003 Server STD, it works but buggy and configuring sync is a hassle. I have limited amount of space on the both server to combine and replicate the data. So, I was looking at procuring two external NAS (eSATA II, Gigabit NIC, or USB 3). Move the data to the NAS and use a software to replicate the NAS data.
These are some software I know that will work, but its an expense solution.

I'm sure there are more software out there that will do the same thing.
Also, I understand some NAS are equipped with software that will perform the function, but I'm not sure how good of a job it does.
Speed and reliability is important. Any ideas are welcome?
