I have a Web server and I need to add another Web server. We will use a load balancer to take care of distributing the load between the 2 Web servers. Users are capable of uploading files and data via FTP and HTTP. I need a technique that will help me make replication for these files and data between my 2 servers so that users will see the same content while browsing from any of the available servers. Can someone offer any advice or suggestions? Thank you in advance

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

their is a lot of solution.

First do a cluste with both http server. and your load balencer will distribute the load. that is the most effective and reliable solution

second use a tool like double take to replicate online data between servers. it acts like a cluster software but you can desable the failover feature so it will act juste for replicate the filse as soon as the files arrived

third write a script that will replicate your folders with robocopy or use viseversa you don’t need to script it it does avery thing for you. and you can sceduled it so it will replicate the folders avery 5 minutes if you want.

that all about it.

***********************
We use Replistor to replcate web server content between 8 web servers. Load balancing is done behind BigIP content switches. User uploaded data is not stored on the web server, it is redirected to a different server so there is only a single instance.
