    Hi Guys,
    i have 2 questions:
    1. is is possible to replicate between SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 on a very LOW BANDWIDTH
    2.Which replication METHOD SHOULD I USE ON VERY LOW BANDWIDTH

    What kind of transactions rate you have on this database?
    When you say low bandwidth what is the maximum rate of transfer you can sustain>?

    hi Satya,
    Well Its not really a transaction Database, its mainly a reporting database. The are some DTS that populate this DB for reporting purposes. Now we want to replicate this database to another Site in another country. Our problem is that in Mauritius the ADSL is very low, 512 KBPS, and the destination country is even worst about 128 kbps.
    i have tried ,DTS ...timeout...
    Now i am looking forward to test with replication, what do you think?

    Yes it is possible to perform the replication as long as the CONNECTIVITY between the sites is consistent and no dropping when the snapshot is generated and applied.
    In this case I would ask you to calculate the size of transaction that is generated when within your test platform, also take into account of the network bandwidth of those sites.

    Hi Akthar,
    You may want to look into NitroAccelerator for SQL Server (formerly SQL Nitro) if you're using replication on very low bandwidth. NitroAccelerator compresses network traffic from server to server or server to client, resulting in up to 95% performance improvement. NitroAccelerator has made replication possible in environments where it previously was not an option due to bandwidth constraints. You can go to www.nitrosphere.net for more info.
