Syncing Two Servers in Real Time - How?

Specs: Windows Server 2003
Hi guys, I'm trying to sync two Windows Server 2003 Server's together in real time, so when I change a file on one server; it will change the other server.

The issue I see is the fact that the servers are in different time zones.

So, where do I start? Can you guys recommend any software/ways of going about this?

Timezones doesn't matter in this case,
because the servers are using the timezones to calculate the local time.
Therefore it's necessary to use timezones.
If the server were in the same timezone but have different time, that would be a problem.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

Google file sync between servers and follow the hits for 3rd party software.

Google file replication service microsoft

Understand that "real time" is determined by the link between the servers.

Also understand that your requirement "change a file on one server; it will change the other server." is nearly impossible.

Normally you would have users in each location with the same file open. How does any system decide which is the one to be updated? If both are changed does the last saved overwrite the other changed document?

What you desire can be done on the database level but I have yet to see it at the file level.

Only way this can work is your two servers actually store their data on a server accessed by both. This way when you change the file its the only file being changed.
