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.

  • Great customer service when questions arose.
  • Functionality was awesome.
  • Bringing the main OLTP down for maintenance then allowed down time we could previously never afford to make SLA committments

Cons

  • 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 .
