This is an interesting post:


I'm not necessarily recommending it, but it's an interesting way to create a geo-rep solution. It's copied from Theron Conrey's original blog post on the subject - http://conrey.org/2013/05/21/bittorrent-sync-as-geo-replication-for-storage/

Next step, for someone who wanted to continue this line of thought to its logical conclusion, is to perhaps use Murder, an open source project from Twitter:

Murder is an unfortunately-named project for deploying binaries and code across a massively scaled web environment. It might be interesting to apply it to the geo-rep context.
