Already using it

We've implemented File Replication on all of our Win2K servers to push file changes instantly over to a dedicated Win2K3 machine that does nothing but backup to huge hard drives, and can be easily brought online itself to serve if a primary server goes down.
It then takes 2 snap shots a day of that data for a running history. The next step we are already planning was discussed in this article about then pushing those snap shots to an offsite location.
