July Meeting: A Database Driven Elegant Solution for Replication

Join us and Logical Advantage on Tuesday, July 28, at 6:00 PM in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Replication is a tool in the relational database realm to keep two databases in sync. It is used to set up a child server to use a report server or to allow individual users to maintain subsets of data for their use without impacting other user’s data. Replication may take the form of transaction replication which moves data on an individual command basis in one direction, merge replication which moves the data in both directions and snapshot replication which takes a point in time snapshot of the data and moves it in one direction. In this talk, you will learn the ins and outs of SQL Server replication and how to more effectively set up replication using database driven methodologies. You will also receive information on some of the gotchas they may face in using replication.

The meeting presenter is Eric Notheisen.
