where Rsync falls down, is if you need a point in time snapshot... Rsync
processes one file at a time, so if the files are being updated while
its running, the differnet files will be copied at different times.
This is usually fine for static archives of files and such, but
unsuitable for a database server where random updates are being made of
various files and they all have to be consistent.
