I have over 10 millions records to update per year spreading over 20 entities.  What are all the different options available for data sync (unidirectional - from SQL database to CRM or bidirectional).

I am looking for a cost effective solution for a long term purpose.

Not sure of the costs but you can check the websites.

Note that adding records to CRM must be done via the CRM SDK and not directly to the SQL database tables.

Do you know if there is any free connector that will transfer data from an external SQL database (not the underlying SQL database of CRM 2011) to CRM 2011

Hi tommy121,

There is no "free" lunch. :) If you are comfortable writing code you can write 1 for yourself though.

Regards,
Chinmay.
