it is _supposed_ to work that way ... close to production. But last time we looked at it, there were too many limitations relates to IOT, VARRAYS etc and it wasn't ready for our platform and version .  

but it is supposed to be good ... I have heard similar things about dataguard as well, but that is only if you are on 9i.

Quest is trying to sell us a product named SharePlex. It sounds very attractive, but then sales people are supposed to be good at that. We are a mid sized company, about 2.2 billion per year, running Financials 11.5.7. We are interested in this for HA and for reporting instance use.


We use Cognos as our query tool and the owners of this product tells me that we can't tune the SQL it emits. It makes pretty poor choices, which is not surprising for a gooey, sticky tool designed for end users. It is sort of pretty and if you can drool you too can generate cross products. Anyway , I'd like to get them off the production box.


Does SharePlex allow you to stay close to the production instance in time? Does the store and forward work well? Do you love it? Hate it? Anything you'd like to say about this product I'd like to hear

Thanks in advance
