We've actually kicked around the concept of using Bittorrent Sync a bit here before, but being closed source left us thinking we should find an open-source alternative to start from. Haven't investigated further (yet). Any (other) leads?
Thanks for the tip on Murder.

Subject: [Gluster-devel] Fwd: Using Bittorrent Protocol as basis for Geo-Replication
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.
