We have a distributed environment across different georaphical areas (connected together through VPN only).
I assume that ETL tools can't deal with such a situation. Am I right?

So how to automate the data transfer from one site to the main site?
Target is SQL Server...

I wouldnt assume the ETL tool cant work across a network through a VPN. Have you contacted the vendor? Which tool are you using?

Haven't decided yet on the tool, but any tool that would support automation through distributed env is acceptable...

What should condition the choice of the tool you are to be using are the two factors below:

> Data size to be synchronized: for important sizes of data to be synchronized, choose GoldenGate.  For smaller sizes, SQL Server native replication should be sufficient
> Network bandwidth: based on how much bandwidth, you may consider tools that are more or less network tolerant.  SQL Server native replication is usually sufficient.  You may also consider database mirroriing.
