  • The secondary SQL servers can be connected to LAN and the connection between secondary SQL servers and the primary SQL server over WAN.
  • Read operations are directed to the secondary SQL server, reducing the load on the primary SQL server so it can respond faster, and handle more load.
  • Depending on whether the replication is being used for server load balancing in low latency environments (synchronous) or for increasing performance in high latency environments (asynchronous), the administrator can be defined Database replication schemes.
