If the requirement is "near-real-time", the question is how near to real-time does it need to be? seconds? minutes? hours?

Once the tables are duplicated, you need to worry about how much data per second, minute, or hour you will be transferring and whether or not your pipelines (network connections) are sufficient to handle the traffic.

You said "one-way" so, are there any data changes that occur on server-B that are not on server-A? Do you need access to server-B while server-A is up? (standby?)


Streams may be your only option.
