Re: [K12OSN] OT: Off-site data replication



Depends on how much mail you have. Rsync would probably work well, since it sends only the changes (the initial synchronization may take a while), but if you've got thousands of users who send around lots of large files, it could be a problem. But I'm guessing that isn't the case. I'd try it, you've got nothing to lose.

Hi List,

We are searching for methods of replicating important data to an off-site (but still connected to the network via fiber) location. For example, our mailserver (qmail and Courier IMAP) is backed up daily, but if we had a hard disk failure just before a backup, we would lose 24 hours of data.

What are some alternatives in replicating data in a relatively-live manner? A SAN is an option, but is something that extensive required? Would doing an rsync every 15 minutes bring the box to its knees?

Thanks for any ideas!
Mike
