File sync: Keeping multiple geographic sites in sync automatically using server replication

aRoot automatic file transfer, HOWTO

When your business has multiple offices in many geographic locations, your company will need to synchronize files automatically, aggregate  data, backup it up or distribute  it in order to protect data and leverage it for decision making.

Using traditional backup, may protect your data but it will not make that data available for use without restoring it first unless you use some file sync solution. Using file sync alone may clobber older versions of data and hence will not allow you to roll back in case of data corruption or tampering. EDpCloud file sync and replication allows you to have both capabilities in a single solution. To configure file sync and to keep different file versions, add a single parameter to your configuration as follows:


Each time a file is modified on the source a new archive of the original file is created between data is synchronized to create the new file.

The following is an example of a configuration to aggregate content and sync files from many file servers, laptops or desktops to a single location.

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<config name=”Network_Configuration”>
<link name=”l1″>
<sender hostname=”localhost” alias=”*” password=”foo$Xf145″/>
<receiver hostname=”” archive=”20″  numstreams=”3″        storepath=”/data/incoming/%IP%” password=”foo”/>

Whether you want to sync your mac, sync your Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, this will keep an unlimited number of file archives and sync files. Each time your file replication server receives data, a new version of the file is created if the file has been altered. Your files are all readable and accessible on the data replication server immediately without additional backup restore time wait or backup restore software.

This option works with Windows file replication, Mac file replication, Solaris file replication, AIX file replication and other Unix platforms.

That’s it.
