I rsync production CVS repositories routinely, but probably this is not
what you mean by "synchronously".  The synchronization schedule is periodic
and not continuous.  The "backup server" is not actively used or required
by developers.  It serves as a hot-backup system that can be switched to
very quickly in the event of a primary server failure.  A conventional backup
plan is maintained for both the primary server and the backup server.  In
the 10 years I have with this group, we have not required any more than this.
We have had a couple of hardware failures, but use of RAID disk stores,
prevented a need to switch over to the "backup server".  I do not think we
have had to do an emergency swap over more than maybe once or twice.

I have a vague recollection that may offer something
along the lines you are requesting, but I have not researched this any time
