Hi everyone!

I have a LInux and a Windows server and I'm looking for a solution that can allow me to keep a folder (on 4 different nas in different locations connected by vpn) synced.

This means that if I'm in location 4 and add a file I expect location 1,2,3 to get that file in minutes
If I'm in location 2 and delete a folder I expect location 1,3,4 to delete that folder too

The more "updated" should win...

The share is a normal samba share on different kind and brands of NAS.

Thanks for the help!

One option.  Install Always sync and Go on a Windows system that has access to all four nas boxes, choosing to install the synchronization service.
Configure a job.  You can add additional folders to synchronize.  In the advanced job properties define delete behavior.  
Verify it's working, then install a license, and schedule the job.

rsync will sync every folder to the last updated?

RSync just uses the filesystem's attributes, not maintaining metadata separately, so for each pair of folders you run rsync the --delete option only works on one, so deletions don't propagate correctly.  
Always sync uses it's own metadata repository in a separate folder, so handles the situation better.

Bittorrent sync does greatly and very easily the job :)
