Fundamentals of SQL Server 2012 Replication

Sometimes you need to make data that lives on one server available on another server. You might want to speed up cross-server queries by providing a local copy of the data. Or you might want to make the data available to resource intensive reporting queries without impacting the OLTP load. In these cases it can be useful to look at SQL Server replication.
