Assuming https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enterprise_file_synchronization_and_sharing, our two products that copy files are XCP and CloudSync. CloudSync supports mirroring. XCP is a bit more like Robocopy but it does have analytics for differences.

 

Another thought is if you have two sites, you could use something like GFC (Global File Cache) to improve WAN performance. It is available at https://cloud.netapp.com/global-file-cache.

Hi @paul_stejskal ,

we are looking for solution like ShareFile where we can integrate remote notebook in to system. Why not ShareFile? It is Citrix and we don't know where Citrix will to in future. Second issue  is  price.
