Production and Developer Sandbox

My company's Salesforce Org has everything(Data) in Production Sandox. But the salesforce best practise would be to develop in developer sandbox and to deploy in production(Correct me if I am wrong). Our requirement is to have entire data in developer sandbox too.

1)How to integrate the data between these two (production and developer)sandboxes?
2) We will be having weekly updates in production sandbox. How to keep data in sync between these two sandboxes?

What you need is a full sandbox, as developer sandbox would not be able to hold all data for production. Full sandbox is an exact replica of production for licensing and storage etc. Some information here: https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=create_test_instance.htm&language=en_US (https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=create_test_instance.htm&language=en_US)

I haven't seen any solutions for automatic refreshes, but if it is only the data that you need to synchronize at regular intervals, look at some ETL tool like Informatica which could help you do that.
