We use SAP Rep Server to create a warm standby read only copy of our data to be used for reporting and other decision support type activities. It is used within our department and is not an enterprise solution. The Enterprise solution that is recommended is Oracle's Golden Gate. We use Replication Server because it offers guaranteed delivery and transactional consistency. It also offers low latency so we can run critical jobs against the warm standby copy knowing that copy is only ever a few seconds behind the transactional copy.
  • guaranteed delivery
  • high availability
  • scalable
  • low latency
  • data transformation
  • make implementation easier
  • make programming easier
  • offer out of the box pre-defined use cases
Rep Server is great for creating a warm standby server and backup copies of data. What is great about replication server is it is replicating transactions, not disk blocks. So transactions are also consistent and no corruption is ever replicated. I have not found a situation where Rep Server can't handle what we're asking for, however, at times it can be difficult to program. Doing data transformations can be a little tricky and you need very knowledgeable DBAs and Developers that understand the product. Rep Server uses a publish and subscribe model and can do cross platform data migrations.
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.

We have used SAP SLT replication in our Customer Corporate reporting. This tool has made it possible to get data in Real Time earlier than it was scheduled, as well as to batch process to get data for reporting.

Due to this tool it is possible to get real time data for business decisions. It is huge time saving for Period end and Q close closing. No more waiting to see data for reporting.

Real time reporting is a business requirement for a long time. Our Business Community is very happy with this tool outcome.

  • Real time data transfer.
  • Enhanced data monitoring and Transformation Capability.
  • Low maintenance.
  • Tight integration with SAP
  • Data Reconciliation Functionality.

I used it to resolve resource issues where other teams were using the OLTP as a DW, and to resolve DR. Before RepServer, they had a live OLTP and a cold standby OLTP and transactions had to be updated using scripts we wrote running in the cron. Since these two systems were in geographically different parts of the country, latency played a role. We had application servers all over the nation where slow connections played a role in performance to the central OLTP. In some more remote locations, the application connecting to the central OLTP was very slow. Once RepServer was implemented, we set it up with by-directional replication, where we also had a active standby we built as well. I then built two more dbs, where those were used as DW so that engineers could scan any table they wanted and we didn't have to worry about table level locks. This improved performance substantially, brought in a near-real time standby DB, and utilized several DW's and made everyone happy...
  • Training was excellent on the product.
  • 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
  • A few bugs existed in the specific implementation we created requirements for, and we had to wait for Sybase to fix those bugs before it went live to production
  • Two way replication had issues where if the same table was being updated by both source and destination, a decision had to made on the "truth". We had to write some special software for specific business requirements.
  • Sometimes RepServer would go down, and we didn't know about it until the next time a healthcheck was performed. We had to write some monitoring software to notify us if things went down.
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.
