Real time file replication
FileReplicationPro today unveiled a Mac OS X Real Time Replicator, software that offers instantaneous file replication for Mac OS X and mixed operating system server environments. Rather than waiting for scheduled replications across a large server network, FileReplicationPro uses Filesystem Event Notifications to capture changes to files as they occur, and synchronizes these changes throughout a network. A single server license is available for $500, with bulk discounts also available.
The replication techniques used by FileReplicationPro can also cut down on bandwidth usage, as they do not require comparisons of the source and destination server file structures before synchronization. FileReplicationPro for Mac supports ACL and Resource Fork replication, as well as built in scheduling and bit-level replication. The software can be controlled through either a graphical user interface or web-based management console.
"Built and tested to withstand large enterprise levels of activity," the product page states, "the real time replication engine is able to handle thousands of events across millions of files and terabytes of data, ensuring that how ever much activity occurs on your network your servers can remain in synch in real time."
