Using Replication to Improve Performance

Replication, covered in Chapter 24, can be used to improve performance in a multiuser application. Using replication, you can place multiple copies of the database containing the tables out on the network, each on a different file server. Different users can be set up to access data from the different file servers, thereby better distributing network traffic. Using the Replication Manager, which ships with the Microsoft Office Developer Edition Tools for Windows 95 (ODE), the databases can be synchronized at regular intervals. Although this isn't a viable solution when the data that users are viewing needs to be fully current, there are many situations in which this type of solution might be adequate. It's often the only solution when limited resources don't allow migrating an application's data to a client/server database.

Note

The Replication Manager comes only in the ODE.
