Today Pluralsight published my new course, “SQL Server: Transactional Replication Fundamentals.”

This course provides a fundamental overview of how to configure, monitor, tune and troubleshoot a SQL Server transactional replication topology. Transactional replication meets a few specific data distribution requirements that no other native SQL Server feature does out-of-the-box.  Even if you’re not a fan of this feature (and I’ve met quite a few), if you are responsible for architecting SQL Server data-distribution solutions it is helpful to understand how transactional replication fits into the overall scalability, high availability and disaster recovery feature landscape.
