1) Take a server with a 10Gb (max) volume. This volume is live: files are
being added/deleted through ftp (Read/Write).
2) Take x clients which need to receive a synchronised copy of the
mentioned volume above. Contents have to be served out through http
Would it be possible to say make a level 0 dump every night, a level 1
