Question of the Day Twenty-Eight

Let us continue our question of the day series with day twenty-eight.

What is snapshot replication?

Snapshot replication is similar to a database snapshot in that you can distribute a replica of the original database at a given point in time, however it does not update as the data changes going forward.  This snapshot is then replicated to subscribers.  This is a more appropriate solution if you have data that you want replicated but it does not change very often.

Enjoy!
