If you have ever been responsible for a replication environment, you know what a pain that can be. Many of the guests of the show will point out their frustration with replication and many are loathe to use it--myself included; however, there are a few brave souls out in the world who do use replication regularly--and even use it well. Chuck Lathrope is our guest today and he talks us through some of the components of replication and why we might not need to be so skittish about this long time feature.
We cover all the basics including an overview of Transactional Replication, Merge Replication, Peer-to-Peer replication and Snapshot Replication, the concept of publisher, distributor and subscriber in relation to replication. The most important piece is Chuck gives us some good business cases for why we might use replication and I think you will find the discussion interesting. Thanks for joining us on the SQL trail!
