Heterogeneous Database Replication

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 supports the following heterogeneous scenarios for transactional and snapshot replication:

  • Publishing data from Oracle to Microsoft SQL Server
  • Publishing data from Microsoft SQL Server to non-SQL Server Subscribers

You can use SQL Server to publish data from Oracle with most of the same features and ease-of-use as SQL Server snapshot and transactional replication. Publishing data from Oracle is ideal for the following scenarios:

Scenario Description

Microsoft .NET Framework application deployments

Develop with Microsoft Visual Studio and SQL Server while operating on data replicated from a non-SQL Server database.

Data warehousing staging servers

Keep SQL Server staging databases synchronized with a non-SQL Server database.

Migration to SQL Server

Test your application in real time against SQL Server while replicating the source system's changes. Switch to Microsoft SQL Server when satisfied with the migration.

For more information, see Oracle Publishing Overview.

The following non-SQL Server databases are supported as Subscribers to snapshot and transactional publications:

  • Oracle for all platforms that Oracle supports.
  • IBM DB2 for AS400, MVS, Unix, Linux, and Windows

For more information, see Non-SQL Server Subscribers.
