Correct tool for my purpose of data movement between servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I am in the process of trying to copying over data from source sql server table to destination sql server table. The requirements being, only the new or updated data needs to be migrated to destination table, once a week. Our source table has 23 million rows and growing. 

    I researched two different solutions and would like to know if anyone has feedback on these. 

    1. Merge - used to sync data between source and destination table using SSIS packahe. But the problem for this according to my research, with the amount of data in consideration, the transactional log will grow by leaps and bounds. Not the way.

    2. Replication - I have started my research in this matter. Would this be an ideal solution? 

    Many thanks.
