You will of course never attain "real-time" updating over systems.
Using cron is the only option with rsync.

You may want to investigate DRBD or csync2, but possibly those are only
available for linux. Otherwise using a NAS or SAN, depending on your
situation (you don't really tell much) might be more appropriate for
your needs.
