*Syncthing* FREE PC to PC sync between multiple offices

Postby rhaber123 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 9:43 am

If you have multiple offices, you can sync your data between these offices every 30 -60 seconds

https://syncthing.net/
Open Source - Open Protocol - Open Development
Alternative to Crashplan - No Cloud services needed - PC to PC backup over the Internet.

Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized.
Your data is your data alone and you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it's transmitted over the Internet.

Its in my opinion perfect for live Sync between two or even more computers - I copy the Open Dental Images folder across the two practices - so almost every 30 seconds it watches for changes and sends it across - I take it one step further - I copy the folder to a computer at home (and another on Cloud) which serves as my backup - hence four computers in sync

I also backup my Carestream imaging folder (3D CTBT) across the four location

- for the first time I manually copied files between the computers (two offices locations & one backup computer stashed away at home) after that, it compared the folders located all over and is now keeping all locations in perfect sync, checks for changes in the background every 60 seconds and fetches the updated files.

Looks like this handles the A-Z folder. How do you handle the database?

just create a separate folder for each file that you would like to sync, and it will do it.
create 3 separate folders, a-z folder, Opendental data, and xrays

You can create as many folders as you want - read their help instructions for further info
According to syncthing, the data is being encrypted than synced.

And the Open Dental data comes through OK? I just know that there are issues with trying to backup a live database and I'm surprised that this would work on a live database.

What about HIPAA and PHI?

"drawab"I've been using SYNCTHING [https://syncthing.net/] for past two years

Its in my opinion perfect for live Sync between two or even more computers - I copy the Open Dental Images folder across the two practices - so almost every 30 seconds it watches for changes and sends it across - I take it one step further - I copy the folder to a computer at home (and another on Cloud) which serves as my backup - hence four computers in sync

According to syncthing, the data is being encrypted than synced. You need to keep a log of who is using these computers. Your data is not shared with a third party.


Secure & Private
• Private. None of your data is ever stored anywhere else other than on your computers. There is no central server that might be compromised, legally or illegally.
• Encrypted. All communication is secured using TLS. The encryption used includes perfect forward secrecy to prevent any eavesdropper from ever gaining access to your data.
• Authenticated. Every node is identified by a strong cryptographic certificate. Only nodes you have explicitly allowed can connect to your cluster.

Like all backup software, the dental office is responsible for configuring it in a HIPAA compliant manner and for enforcing policies in their organizations to meet HIPAA compliance.
