Hi,

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.

DoubleTake
EMC Replication Manager
ViceVersa

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?

Thanks.

For a hardware solution I recommend that you look at company Synology www. synology.com
For software, look at Microsoft Home Server with a snap in called HomeServerSync.

Thanks for replying insidertech. Synology was definitely one of my option. However, as for HomeServerSync. I don't feel good about it but will definitely look into it.

Dont let the name fool you. The backup in the HS is rock solid, has an excellent de-duplication and recovery is as easy as it can be. The best part is, that for what it does, it is cheap.

This is the first time I accepted a solution and post point. I don't know how it works, I thought I can give partial points if the provided solution is possible but not my accepted solution. Can you cancel my request? I'd like to give some point to the guy, but his solution may work, but not the solution I expected.

Thanks.
