File / Folder / Cloud synchronization software for server

hi all,

I have a client with a SBS2003 box at site 1, and a branch office with a Server 2012 box.  Mail and file shares are on the SBS box and they VPN in (Windows dialup VPN) to access file shares.   The sites are on their own seperate domains.

They want to move to a file/folder sync service instead so they can have a local copy of company files at both sites (and potentially other sites) to speed up local access.  Most sites really only need to work on their own specific site folders but only occasionally they do need to view files related to other sites, so the need to work on the same file at the same time at different sites is minimal (so minimal synced file conflicts/duplication).

Can anyone suggest a live sync tool / cloud backup/sync software that will work on both SBS 2003 and Server 2012?  Key features needed:

- runs as service
- updates files/folders as soon as they are modified/saved
- doesnt require moving of existing folder structure
- runs on both SBS2003 and Server 2012

thanks in advance!

Thanks but thats overkill.

I've ended up using Logmein's Cubby along with AlwaysUp to run it as a service.  It works on SBS2003 and Server 2012 and has a client sync option without storing files in the cloud.  $48 a year for unlimited data syncing.
