Agreed to the swift idea, but in this particular case he needs to 
replicate MS SQL. He needs a distributed filesystem of some sort or 
something like Gallera, but for MS SQL. I'm sure Microsoft developed 
something like this considering the amazing prices they charge for it. 

Anyway, 1500 miles will add a lot of latency ... I'm curious how this 
will end up. :)
