file replication over WAN

Author: anonymous
Date: Mon Aug 29 17:55:42 2005 I am curious if anybody had any lack with real-time asynchronous file replication for SCO OpenServer over WAN? There are a lot of Windows programs that do that very nicely (Double Take, for example), but nothing that I could find for SCO. One way would be to set up Samba and use a Windows machine as an intermediary, but there must be a more economical solution.

Got something to add? Send me email.

real time asynchronous? sounds like an oxymoron.

did you look at rsync?

on linux there is DRBD...

rsync sounds very intriguing - will definitely try it. Thank you.

You are correct - "real-time async" is an oxymoron, so a better term would be "close-to-real-time async". My goal is to have a mirrored SCO box at a remote location. With so many Internet backup options available on Windows, more and more of my SCO clients are asking for the same.

Oh, sheesh, I misunderstood. I thought you wanted Windows replication..

Yes, rsync and also see (link) and

And btw, a search here for "rsync" will turn up many useful links.

As soon as an Analytical Engine exists, it will necessarily guide the future course of the science. Whenever any result is sought by its aid, the question will then arise — by what course of calculation can these results be arrived at by the machine in the shortest time? (Charles Babbage)
