Keep an eye on https://prism-break.org/ for answers to questions like this for networking and storage needs. The site lists some FOSS-only live/online file sync tools; it looks like they all require a central coordination server (one that you control or one that you rent capacity on), or optionally more than one server for fault tolerance.
If you can provide a central point of contact upon which to run the sync software you choose, something like ownCloud or SparkleShare should do the trick for you.
