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.

SAS Data Management Platform

SAS Data Management Platform is very well suited if you have common data sources like Oracle, SAP, MS SQL, etc.. Still, if there are a bit more obscure, then you need to purchase additional connectors to connect to those data sources. It is well suited when you don't have a business team with strong technical/coding background as the drag and drop interface makes creating jobs and scheduling them quite easy.

Cons

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 .

SAS Data Management Platform

  • Requires third-party drivers to connect to common data sources like SFDC, MS SQL, Postgres.
  • Debugging errors from the logs is a complicated process.
  • E-mail alert system is very primitive and needs customization to make it more modern,
  • Cannot send SMS alerts for jobs.

SAS Tech Support is one of the best tech supports available. Not only do they respond faster, but they also have a global 24x7 support team that helps in case of production server issues. The staff is quite knowledgable and accommodating. They help you via e-mail, phone, or even WebEx if the issue demands. The solutions they provide are quite detailed and easy to implement even for someone who hasn't worked on SAS.

SAP Replication Server

Hands down Sybase has the best replication

SAS Data Management Platform

SAS Data Management Platform requires third-party drivers to connect to common data sources like SFDC, MS SQL, Postgres. Has almost all features present as compared to the alternatives we evaluated. On top of it, SAS offered statistical transformations and strong metadata management. SAS Data Management Platform was also the most cost-effective solution despite having to purchase a couple of connectors for SAP and Salesforce. The easy of applying security templates was also a feature that can be easily used as compared to others mentioned.
