I would like to get the opinion of people who are using CDC to keep a secondary database in-sync for reporting or data warehouse purposes.

When mirroring was released for 2005, I was impressed with how easy it was to configure and it worked very reliably. Hopefully CDC is the same.

Thanks, John

Normally transactional replication is used to keep a secondary database in-sync. That's what we used in previous version, but we are now using AlwaysOn readable secondary feature since our schema is the same as the OLTP database.

Yes, I would love to use the AlwaysOn feature but my source/primary instance is 2008 R2 and AlwaysOn isn't available for pre-2012.

So I'm going to give CDC a whirl and I'll post back with how well it works.
