It depends on the requirement. What are you trying to do? How fresh does the data need to stay? Is there a fast network link between the involved databases?

There is no 'best' method to replicate a database based on its size. There may be a 'best' method depending on what the business requirements are.

If this is a real-life question (not an exam or interview question) then let us know what problem you are trying to solve and maybe we can help you.
