Introducing SQL Remote

SQL Remote is a data-replication technology designed for two-way replication between a consolidated data server and large numbers of remote databases, typically including many mobile databases.

SQL Remote replication is message based, and requires no direct server-to-server connection. An occasional dial-up or email link is sufficient.

Administration and resource requirements at the remote sites are minimal. The time lag between the consolidated and remote databases is configurable, and can range from minutes to hours or days.

In a SQL Remote installation, you must have properly licensed SQL Remote software at each participating database.
