We already use rsync, but the data set is about 2.2Tb growing data with 
a huge folder tree.
Presently, rsync is taking way too much time and load on the server, 
that's why we are planing to use DRBD:
- keep an up-to-date backup server (we have today one backup per 24hours)
- reduce load on primary

And we would prefer to access accurate data if needed on the secondary 
backup server.
