Hi Carlos,

I wrote that round-up, and there are a couple of things I would add. The
first is that, of the packages I talk about in that blog post, I'd go with
dbreplicator as it seems a little more active in terms of development and
response to emails. However, these days I would actually choose sqlsync

This works very well as a cross-platform (cross-database too) command line
tool, so once you're familiar with the syntax it can easily be incorporated
into a script to run whenever you need it to. 

Hope that helps
