    connect to 3 servers with 24/7 backup automatic

    Say I have 3 servers, each in different locations (for our purposes, 1 in an office, 1 at a house and 1 in Florida). Now in general the 1 in the office will be used the most...the others mostly being backups. If that is the case, what must be done in order for each server to have exact data 24/7. Essentially you'd have 3 exact copies constantly, but I would like it done automatically, say every night at 1 am. Is this easily done? What would be involved? Static IPs? Additionally, what if I added data on the Florida server, how could that be setup to copy it's data to the other 2 pcs. The connections to these servers would be cable, dsl or T1 (eventually).

    My 2nd question, related to the first, is this. A client of mine would like a website where demos can shown to anyone who wishes to view them (the demo is some type of java software, but that isnt that important). How could a connection be quickly established to those 3 original servers to test a demo from a web browser? I was thinking of like a SSL connection or ftp, I honestly don't know.

    Thanks.

    You would need to create WAN links between the 3 offices. Once you have done that then you can make each server a network drive and then your backup software can map to it.

    Creating WAN links is not as easy as it sounds. I dont know if money is a consideration in this or not but the cheapest Cisco product is about $1000AUS each and you would need 3, one for each office.

    I am sure there are other vendors with alternate products, but the Cisco is what I have used for clients of mine and it works great.

    What about simply using FTP? Server A=FTP server then B and C download from A everynight.

    I would setup a DNS on server A to do so.

    KNow any good FTP servers?

    How does FTP sound to you?
