Hello Greg

We are doing the same here. I have in my office a server (MacPro 2009), and attached to this server is an LTO tape backup system. It is writing a backup once a day of our Project folder (Incremental). A Drobo is attached to this server, too, for additional safety backup (Chrono Sync).
The Project Folder gets synced with Resilio to three more PC Workstations. And additionally, it is selectively syncing to our remote freelance editors. They sync what they need. So, wherever we are editing, instantly, it is back synced to 4 PCs and once a day to an LTO and DROBO. Resilio is writing an Archive of all deleted assets and keeps it five days available on each machine. So a lot of safety. We never lost anything. And yes, the speed we have here in Switzerland is excellent in a lot of places but not all of our freelancers have fast internet. We are working with Proxies, and this is fine.

Overall, it is a perfect solution for us. Costs are about $200 per year.
