SAP's Sybase Replication Server is database development and management software.https://dudodiprj2sv7.cloudfront.net/product-logos/Kx/1h/HW8JN38HWTRB.JPEGSAP Replication serverI am a Sr. technical consultant working for a diamond client for our organisation. Our client uses SAP Replication server at their entire organisation to send, replicate, and transfer data to and from different data sources of EU and non-EU regions. With the help of SAP replication terminology it is really very easy to replicate the real time data from/to different regions.,Before implementing SAP Replication Server we were facing the challenges to replicate the real-time data from and to our department from Non-EU regions. Since SAP Replication Server is in-place, our client and their shareholders are starting to get real time data from different sources of DBs with very great performance of different transactions, which results in speeding up the process and service with other products.,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 .,10,With SAP Replication server, connecting to Big Data is easiest and fastest way to achieve the data transfer and receive requirement with the help of Big data integration such as HIVE connectors, to and from different stage files, One of the great functionalities of SAP RS is, it can maintain business continuity by providing the DR solution without downtime, and it only requires medium expertise to utilise the SAP RS functionality to run. This means that every organisation can get real benefit out of it.

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.

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.,9,The positive impact was better performance from our application using these new databases available to the business. Negative impact was development time Another negative impact was that Sybase engineering had to patch RepServer to fix a bug we discovered.,

I am a Sr. technical consultant working for a diamond client for our organisation. Our client uses SAP Replication server at their entire organisation to send, replicate, and transfer data to and from different data sources of EU and non-EU regions. With the help of SAP replication terminology it is really very easy to replicate the real time data from/to different regions.
  • Before implementing SAP Replication Server we were facing the challenges to replicate the real-time data from and to our department from Non-EU regions.
  • Since SAP Replication Server is in-place, our client and their shareholders are starting to get real time data from different sources of DBs with very great performance of different transactions, which results in speeding up the process and service with other products.
  • 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 .
It's very well suited in scenario where you expect real-time, transactional data replication with high speed low latency, and no changes in coding with source data schema. I strongly recommend SAP replication server for such requirements where you have business critical needs and want data safety.

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

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.
