Server Replication

My companies existing setup is as follows. 2 * 2012 servers. 1 is in each office and each office is connected together via firewall VPN link.

Site 1 has the DC with all the master roles, and file storage
Site 2 has a RODC with file storage

On the server at site 2 the server also acts as a hyper V server and there is a application server running (Sage 200 with MS SQL 2012). The application is used by both sites

What would be the best way to either replication this virtual server or another method to allow the application to run faster at site 1?

I suggest not to use replication between two sites unless you have super fast connection. best way to use the Virtual terminal running from your other site that will give you the required performance.

yes we did try terminal services but we dont want to be having to pay the huge microsoft fees.

I cant see any other options available myself?

Also you can create some desktops and connect them using RDP from other site as well. alternatively you can use applications like TPLUS that will cost you $20 per user for doing the same thing - a good alternative to Microsoft.
