Replication Series, Part One: The Beginning

Fresh back from a week of intense training in the SQLskills.com Immersion Event Two, I thought I would start a new learning series on replication.  Today we will start with the basics, definitions.

  1. Publisher: A database instance that publishes data to other instances.
  2. Subscriber: A database instance that receives publications.
  3. Article: A published object which can be a table, view, user-defined function, indexed view, or stored procedure.
  4. Publication: A collection of articles to be published.
  5. Distributor: A database instance that manages the distribution between publisher and subscriber.
  6. Local Distributor: A distributor located on the same LAN as the publisher.
  7. Remote Distributor: A distributor located on a remote network from the publisher.
  8. Agent: A service enabling replication tasks such as publishing, distributing, and subscribing.

Stay tuned and enjoy!
