Just want to share with you a synchronizer tool called “Unison” which I used during data migration. What is Unison?. Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows two replicas of a collection of files and directories to be stored on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes in each replica to the other (google).
From my last project (KIC), I can say that Unison did a very good job to do data synchronize between servers. Compare with traditional rsync which is sometime too complicated for the beginners, Unison is very easy to use. Do first data synchronize (delta) then let Unison do the remaining synchronization job for you. You can run Unison in two mode (GUI and command Cli), scheduling it by modifying unison “default.prf” parameters & many more.
But hei! I suggest you read the manual (complete manual) and play with it first before you’re going to use it on production environment!
p/s : Unison kinda like “syncback” another synchronizer tools for windows.
