I am making a DR site over the cloud and want to upload all my file server contents in the fast and most suitable way. There are many options like;
- DFS Replication
- Third party tools like BeyondCompare
I want to know whats the best way to upload 100s of GB data for the least time. Also I want to keep all my files synced together. If the changes are made over the DR file server, they sync quickly with the local server, and if the changes are made in local server, they quickly sync to DR. DFS Replication sounds to do this but I have not much time to test each n every tool. Want to know the best practices for the activity I am going to do.
Maybe I can use two tools, first take a shadow copy or something and later enable file syncing. But guide me a better solution.
P.S. I got a Windows 2008 R2 server locally, and I want to use a 2012 r2 over the cloud.
