SAP Replication Server

I asked questions about a warm standby and multicast replication. We ended up using bi-directional replication and a warm standby db. Having 3 or more live OLTP DB's where each was read-write was going to be difficult to manage for contention if the same table was being updated. We stuck with an easier solution to have only two OLTP's, and then used additional DB's as read-only DW's.

Pros

DBArtisan

  • User interface is easy to use, and in some ways better than Toad. The left hand side shows all databases, and you can drill down to instance, storage, schemas, tablespaces, and performance views. The right hand side displays the details of the selected object.
  • This is the best tool if you want to manage multiple RDBMS platforms in a single tool using the same familiar interface. Other third party tools can do it also, but it's not nearly as integrated as this, and may require additional plug-ins installed. DBArtisan excels at this, and can perform cross-platform data migrations easily.
  • It has different DB analysts, which can help diagnose issues with performance, optimize storage, detect fragmentation, and plan for capacity growth. For almost any action you want to take, you can generate the DDL for preview, and/or schedule it to run at a specific time.

Cons

DBArtisan

  • Locks up far too often
  • Licensing structure is expensive
Zhann Goloborodko | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Replication Server

  • So far we have not dealt with any challenges since we started to utilise its functionality or high speed data replication, with integrated transnational data from different data sources to exchange the replication of data.
  • Our only small concern is it takes extra effort to maintain the hardware and you need special DBAs skills to properly utilise its functionality with its capacity .

SAP support has been outstanding. They have quick response times and always meet their SLAs. Any time we have an issue that needs to be researched they are able to get back to us quickly with resolution.

Alternatives Considered

DBArtisan

DBArtisan does not have an in-depth performance analyzer for databases.

Hands down Sybase has the best replication

Return on Investment

DBArtisan

  • It has a positive ROI on our organization. It's better than OEM and SQL Developer. Although the license could be expensive, it is perfect for large organizations, especially with multiple RDBMS platforms.
  • Most features are redundant between DBArtisan and Toad. I would not recommend using both if you already own one of them. Just download the trial for the one you're not using, and see what works best for your organization.
  • DBArtisan is great for DBAs and would be my personal preference. Toad is good for developers and DBAs alike but I feel like sometimes the interface is too busy and too clumsy to use.

SAP Replication Server

  • A positive is that it allow quick business decision making on the basis of real time data. Huge time saving for business.
