Can you syc disks between 2 LINUX servers

Hello everyone,

There is something I want to do, and I'm thinking of sycing disks ( non-os ) between 2 LINUX machines. Is this possible. Will appreciate if I'm pointed to the right direction.

Thanks,

You can use rsync or GNBD + GFS, depending of your requirements.

Shalom,

filesystem to filesystem rsync works well, I always use -e ssh to make sure the data stream is encrpyted.

If you really need disk to disk, dd will do it.

As far as replication goes, non-OS:
