Does real-time(or close to) syncing exist?

Hello everyone,

I am new to Alfresco, and am having problems trying to find information/guides on configuring 2 separate Alf installations to "sync" their information, so that both databases/content/indexes are the same.  I have been searching topics like replication & clustering for hours on end and I'm still unsure if either of these features will give me what I need. Finding a howto or setup document for either replication or clustering was a pain in itself, and I still don't have anything that's definitive. 
Does Alf have a built-in feature that can accomplish this? Having only 1 database is not an option.

Heres the deal: 2 offices with Alf 3.2 Community installed at each location. When Office#1 changes or creates a file, I would like Office#2 to be able to see it & have access to it soon after it is altered/created.

So far as I've seen, my only option is to do a 2-way rsync of the Databases, Content Stores, & Lucene Indexes. This solution is undesirable & I've read that rsyncing the Indexes while Alf is running will corrupt them anyways.

If someone could explain how I could accomplish this, it would be greatly appreciated. Posting obscure pages on how clustering & replication works(and not how to set them up) is wasted on me, I have read them all and still don't know how to solve this issue.

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
