Geographically Diverse file-replication
I'm working on something at the moment where I will require file
replication across geographically-diverse networks.
Initially this will probably be multiple sites within the UK, however
it is hoped that it will expand to global datacentres.
We're currently using NetApp 6080's to serve up the files and I'm
wondering if anyone can recommend a good way of syncing the data
(nearly 5 terabytes) so that updates made in one location are
distributed to all the others in the shortest time possible.
In the first instance, I'd be looking for a single point of publishing
with multiple points of distribution (I guess it's a standard
"master-slave" relatoinship if it was a database!) hoever I want to
head towards "Multi-Master" replication at file-sytem level!
Thanks in advnace for all your thoughts,
