Hi Rep Experts,

I was curious about the history of Sybase Replication Server. It feels
very nice when we go through the historical development of any such
admired product in the community.

I tried to search on net and found very little, undocumented,scattered
information.

What I am recollecting is , its a product developed by an Investment
Bank which was handed over to Sybase for product release. Not nothing much.

This forums is the best place where I always found the answer of my all
weird questions. Hoping again.

I understand its technical forums, I am going out of way, but this is
about our Replication Server which we admired from many years.

Thanks.

- Anshu

Replication Server was developed by Sybase in the early 1990's, in part
in response to requests from a major Wall St customer. It has been
always been a Sybase product from day #1, it was not "handed over". I
have heard there was some funding arrangement with that particular
customer but that doesn't change the story.

HTH,

I believe the original requirement was basically the essence of what
RepServer still does today: transactionally consistent data movement in
order to support distributed systems.
