We are looking at using merge replication to maintain a 2-way data flow between a central SQL Server 2012 Standard database and, eventually, 100's of international satellite SQL Express 2012 installations. The central database being the publisher with the SQL Express installations being subscribers.
I understand that I can setup a parameterised filter so that data can be sent specifically to each satellite database - e.g. using the unique ID of each satellite installation.
Is there a maximum number of subscribers that one publication on the SQL Server Standard 2012 can have? From my investigation I have read some people saying 25 but others saying they have many more than that. I can find nothing definitive. Obviously if it is as low as 25 then this solution will not work.
