We are looking at available solutions to sync two author instances and one of the option we thought of using author to author replication.
Can we use this option to sync content between two instance? will this option have any implications on the performance or security?
any inputs would be great.

Query 1 - Did you have any issues in using Grabbit with AEM 6.5 ?
As per Grabbit's github repo latest version is v7.1.5 released 2 years ago and support is mentioned till AEM version 6.3.
Hi @shelly-goel Thanks for your response i will definitely have a look at using Grabbit. My concern about using author to replication is still workable option right , barring the performance issues which can be accommodated with enough resources on both instances?
There is no problem in using author replication agent, but it is an additional overhead to production author when each page is published. You can use the below flow chart to select the right method for content synchronisation.
Pros and cons of each method is depicted as below.
Hope this helps to select the right approach for you.
Thanks for the clarification, couple of things i have observed for two of the options i.e in case of backup/restore if there's a segment error in source then it will get carried over as part of sync to target..in case of vlt-rcp the sync fails occasionally due to unknown reasons and needs to remove the mapped path and resync everything from the beginning
