I need to export some data out of Oracle database 11g (AIX OS), to SQL Server database on a windows server. THis needs to be automated and done on daily basis.

I have two options:

1) Create a linked server
2) use SSIS package

I am leaning more towards building SSIS package. Can anyone give me pros and cons of using one over another.

it really depends...

if you data is a small one like 1000 - 10,000 rows, then I would suggest go with a linked server
A simple stored procedure along with the SQL Agent job will serve the purpose. SSIS will be a huge overload for this....


If the number of rows are well over than 50,000 then go with the SSIS as it will do well in that place.

At this time I am transferring data from two tables, each containing about 25K rows

Ok, then you can simply go for linked server rather than employing the SSIS to do this task...

Unless you have a data conversion that needs to be done some where in between.
