Sharing data site to site
Posted on 2014-09-16
We have one office in the west coast and one in the east coast where at the most 2 users in each site need access to the same folder. To clarify, user1 in the east coast would need to work on a folder which resides on the west coast server and another user in the west coast site needs access to folders that resided on the east coast server. They are currently doing this thru the mpls devices on each site that controls the traffic for their phone system. I advised them not to do this since the phone traffic has priority and passing data packets between sites would bog the system down since its only a 1.5mps line. My question is would there be a way to put the folders that the users wanna share on separate local dedicated machines one on each site and run some type of replication software so that it would alleviate the slow traffic and would no longer have to use the phone line connection and secondly they would be able to make changes to the files and the change would be replicated to the dedicated machine on the other site? Was thinking of setting up a vpn between the 2 machines and the traffic would run thru the T1 lines at each office.
