Is anyone knowledgeable of alternatives to SQL Server replication?
I have a scenario where separate databases will share a lot of the same data which complex queries will match against. We want to separate the databases out from each other (i.e. not on the same SQL Server) so we can ensure the server resources are not a bottleneck.
What techniques allow fast and efficient data sharing, fairly instantly.
Replication seems to be quite a slow and cumbersome technology?
Are there any new features in SQL 2012 and 2014 that cater for this kind of scenario?
AlwaysOn Availability groups doesnt quite cut it as these are readonly replicas.
I need a read/write replica where multiple data sources interact with each other
Server A Server B Server C All have read/write transactions, all require as instant as possible sharing of data between them of the results of the transactions.
Thanks for your help
