Although ASE Replicator provides a basic replication facility for Adaptive Server Enterprise, it is not a comprehensive replication solution.
There are some applications for which ASE Replicator is neither intended nor well suited. These include:
Warm standby systems
High-volume replication systems
Scalable, enterprise-wide distribution
Complex and customizable subscription resolution
Customizable, user-defined datatype translation
Support for heterogeneous (ASE to non-ASE) replication
To support such high-performance replication requirements, Sybase provides the Replication Server™ product and Replication Server Options™ product sets.
