Addison Lee: Increasing Business Continuity and Profitability with SAP and BT
Primary and secondary databases, incorporating SAP Sybase ASE and SAP Sybase Replication Server, work in parallel. The secondary database can be used for running reports, thus removing significant load from the primary database while still providing up-to-the-minute reporting functionality. It can also be used for consistency checks, as the database is fully synchronized with the primary database. Due to the nature of the technology, the nodes involved in the database can be in different buildings and different parts of the network.
