The better solutions start with the advent of Oracle 9i and progress onwards through the newer releases; since you're stuck at for the source side you're then stuck with the homegrown 'solution' currently in place as is the last bastion of Oracle Parallel Server (the precursor to RAC, and unfortunately incompatible with it) and you have no access to Data Guard or Streams.
