Peersync Standard Server


Peersync Standard Server Many-to-One-Replication

Replicating Multiple Windows Servers to One Server for Central Backup
In the event that you have one server that you want to store a copy of data from several other servers, PeerSync is the solution.

PeerSync is a Peer-Level licensed tool. A full license is only required for the machine where the PeerSync application is installed. Remote connection license(s) are required for additional machines added to the synchronization/replication scenario. To our knowledge, Peer Software is the only software company on the market that offers this economical remote connection license model.

All known competitors require a full license on each machine, even if synchronization/replication is unidirectional. There are circumstances where a PeerSync licenses is advantages or required. If you would like real-time updating on all machines in the replication/synchronization scenario, a full license is required for each machine.

PeerSync needs to be installed on the source machine where the real-time changes are taking place in order to detect the changes as they occurPeersync Standard Server

  • PeerSync includes 2 remote connection licenses. This gives you the ability to install PeerSync on one machine (A) and connect to two additional remote machines (B & C).

  • Only one copy of PeerSync needs to be installed on the primary machine (A). No software is required on (B & C). Additional connections licenses (D, E, F) can be added at a reasonable price.

  • From A files can be updated to B, C, D, etc. in real-time, on a timed basis, scheduled basis or on demand.

  • From A files can be pulled back from or swapped between B, C, D, etc. on a timed basis, scheduled basis or on demand.

  • Remote target machines B, C, D, etc. can be any network shared drive, i.e. MS Windows/ Novell/Linux (Samba)/UNIX (Samba).

  • If you would like real-time monitoring on each MS Windows machine A, B, C, D, etc. a licensed copy of PeerSync needs to be installed on each machine.
Byte Level Repliaction Options for PeerSync.
Remote Connection License with ByteReplicator
  • A "Remote Connection License with ByteReplicator" allows PeerSync to send byte level changes from the source machine to the target without sending the entire file. The PeerSync application is installed on the source machine A, and a small application, PSListener (Required to support ByteReplicator option), is installed on the target machine (B, C, D, etc). If a file on the source is changed, PeerSync sends just the changed segments of the file.

    Peersync Standard Server
  • PeerSync allows you to adjust the block segment size. Larger segments require fewer CPU calculations with larger segments sent across the network while smaller segments means more CPU calculations with reduced bandwidth requirements.

  • A Remote Connection License with ByteReplicator is required for each target machine receiving byte level changes.

  • PeerSync ByteReplicator runs on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003.
  • ByteReplicator option is not available when using FTP.
  • You can mix and match connection licenses. For example, you can have 3 standard " Remote Connection Licenses" and 5 "Remote Connection Licenses with ByteReplicator ".

  • If using the "Bi-Directional Synchronization" byte level copying is from the source to the target only.

  • If a file change is detected on the target side, the entire file will be copied back (not the byte change of the file). If you would like byte level copying in both directions, a licensed copy of PeerSync needs to be installed on both machines, and a ByteReplicator installed on both machines.


PeerSync Embedded Open File Manager
Embedded and fully integrated Open File Manager for PeerSync
  • Peersync Standard Server Peer Sync copies open/in use files such as MS Word, Excel, drawing files, picture files, etc. The addition of the Embedded Open File Manager (EOFM) option allows PeerSync to copy open and locked source files (i.e. database files, SQL, Exchange, registry files, etc).

  • The Embedded Open File Manager (EOFM) - a component of the Enhanced Package - runs on MS Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 Operating Systems.

  • EOFM will only work on the source machine where PeerSync is installed. EOFM cannot copy open and locked files from remote machines. If you would like opened and locked files monitored on each machine A, B, C, D, etc. a licensed copy of PeerSync and the Enhanced Package needs to be installed on each machine.

  • EOFM is a product of the St. Bernard Corporation.


Many To Many Replication

Branch Office Syncronization with PeerSync
Provide mirroring and synchronization of files and folders between offices for purposes of high availability, collaboration, and backup.

PeerSync Server Setup in many to many Syncronization.

Synchronization of data between offices has become a necessary requirement for teams collaborating and utilizing data with other teams within an organization.

PeerSync has been designed to meet this demand by assuring reliable and fast synchronization. Integrity of file use between different sites can be maintained using PeerLock; ensuring that two users cannot modify the same file at the same time.

The following procedure can be used to set up a Bi-Directional Real Time Synchronization
Real-Time bi-directional synchronization of servers or workstations in which data modified on either machine is replicated in real-time to the other machine.

The PeerSync installation should be installed on both servers involved in the bi-directional synchronization.

The following steps are performed on the first server, and then repeated on the second server.

  1. Start PeerSync Profiler.

  2. Click on the Job menu at the top and choose Add then select Job with Defaults.

  3. Change the drop-down list in the top left from Basic to Advanced.

  4. In the Folder Selection window, enter the local drive path that needs to be replicated in the Source Folder field. Enter the UNC path or mapped drive letter for the destination of the replicated data in the Target Folder field.

  5. In the File Options window, check the options Add-synchronize new files and Update-synchronize existing files. If you would like file and folder deletion events to be replicated to the second server, check the option Replicate-Delete unmatched files. If this is enabled, we recommend checking the Move deleted files to an alternate location option then clicking on the Move Options... button and selecting a folder or recycling bin to place the deleted files in, otherwise files will be permanently deleted from the system.

  6. In the Automation window, check the options Use real-time monitoring. Click on the Real-Time Options ... button and check the option Use enhanced real-time monitoring (File Level Change Detection). This will ensure real-time events are monitored and processed.

  7. In the File Options window, select Bi-directional (both directions). Choose Ok in the pop-up message box.

  8. Now click on the Global Settings link next to the Bi-directional (both directions) option and check Always create a super-set during bi-directional synchronization. Alternatively, in the Global Settings window you may click on the Global Bi-directional Options link and check the Always create a super-set during bi-directional synchronization option.

  9. In the Miscellaneous window, select Use intermediate file during copy.

  10. (Optional) In the StartUp/Services window, choose the desired startup method. In order to setup PeerSync to run unattended as a service, choose Install as an NT Service.

    Note: If running as a service, make sure the service is using a non-local system account, such as domain admin or any other account that has access to the replicated directories.

  11. Save the profile by going to the File menu and choosing Save or Save As.

  12. Run PeerSync by going to the Run/View Current Profile.

  13. Repeat Steps 1-12 on the second machine, but with the source and target paths reversed. You can also copy the .SNC file that was created when the profile was saved to the second machine and make modifications to that file. The .SNC file is stored in the PeerSync directory by default.
