All nodes of the network are equal and can connect in any way, so it's very easy to create connection schemes with (for example) clustered servers, decentralized servers, complete topologies for better throughput, ring topologies for failover, long-line for passing through many routes, or tree topology for optimizing inter-server bandwidth needs. It is very easy to get working.

The targets of such implementations are PKIs (Public Keys Infrastructures) for intra-company and network applications, requiring a non-trivial security level but not so 'budgeted' to allow the acquisition of true (certified) HSMs, whose cost starts from as little as some thousands dollars.
  • lsyncd
    Lsyncd (Live Syncing (Mirror) Daemon) uses rsync to synchronize local directories with a remote machine running rsyncd. It watches multiple directory trees through inotify. The first step after adding the watches is to rsync all directories with the remote host, and then the software synchronizes single files by collecting the inotify events. lsyncd is a lightweight live mirror solution that should be easy to install and use while blending well with your system.
