We have two sites. These sites connected via VPN. Each site has a storage box. Each sites users save their data into that storage box. We want to sync data of storage box to each other sites (e.g. like Site A and Site B. Copy Site A data dump in site B and Site B data dump in Site A on daily or weekly basis) over VPN connection. Our VPN connection speed 4 Mbps.

Please suggest backup application for our scenario. We prefer go with commercial application

I'm using SecondCopy8 for this type of thing.

Realize that the initial data transfer can take a long time.  
Maybe transport the data from site to site in another manner to get it set up.
Then synchronizing or echoing can do the job in a reasonable amount of time.

That said, 4Mbps is very slow.

In some respects I think there is *no* app that will do well at 4Mbps unless the sync data is quite small.

Thanks Fred Marshall,

I'm considering Symantec backup exec 2014 and Arcserve application for our scenario. What would you suggest ?

I've used Symantec Backup Exec in the past.  It seemed quite good if not just bit difficult to navigate.  Actually, that's why I was called in - because the in-house user couldn't navigate it well. I can't say that's a negative re: Symantec.   I don't know about Arcserve.
