You can try GoldenGate (though I've had some problems with it) or look into Active DataGuard (which is a pretty expensive option) There's also the posibility of using MViews on a DB Link if you have a stable and private link between the two sites... I have seen this working several years ago, on 9i databases. I think they called it advanced replication or something like that. It's a lot of work to set up, but once it's there it's pretty easy to maintain. And the 10g scheduler is far better than the dbms_jobs that 9i had for scheduling the refresh operations.
