Realtime replication software?


Hi all,

I'm looking for a (preferably free) program that will allow me to replicate in real time 1 folder and all it's contents as they are changed across a network. I don't need anything real special other than that.. this is purely for backup purposes, but I don't want to have to have scheduled jobs to copy everything over at once multiple times per day (rsync). Might anyone have any suggestions on something that might work? Again, I just want to have changes be copied over immediately as soon as they are made under 1 folder, and it needs to be compatible with Fedora as well.

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm actually looking for something to replicate over the network to a different PC. Sorry, I went back and looked at my thread and realized that I didn't specify that. What I'd like to be able to do is take 1 folder and all it's contents and subfolders and have them be replicated as soon as anything is changed within them to another PC on the network. I know rsync can do this, but it's not automated and has to be run manually or scheduled to run at set times, and then you run the risk of losing data if something crashes. We have some nice realtime replication software for our Windows servers (Replistor), but as we're trying to move to Linux for a lot of things we need to find some good replication software that can do the same thing.

Thanks.

I'm sure there has to be something like that in Linux...

It wouldn't seem that hard to do.

nbd (network block device) + software raid, if you need data on host and on backup server both - or samba | nfs - if you trust your server
