Scaling Subversion for the Enterprise

Apache Subversion is one of the world’s most popular open source version control solutions. It’s also becoming increasingly popular within the enterprise, with plenty to offer enterprise users, including:

  • Established professional support options
  • A commercial-friendly Apache license
  • Atomic commits that allow enterprise users to track and audit changes
  • Plenty of free training resources, such as webinars, refcards and online tutorials

However, large Subversion deployments have limitations that can negatively affect your business. If you are using multiple Subversion repositories across globally distributed teams, you’re likely facing challenges around performance and productivity, repository sync, WAN latency and connectivity, access control or the need for HADR (high availability and disaster recovery).

In our new, free-to-attend ‘Office Hours’ sessions, our expert Solution Architect will conduct live demos, showcasing how our Subversion MultiSite technology can help you overcome the limitations and risks related to globally distributed SVN deployments. Over the course of the hour, our Solution Architect Patrick Burma will cover these issues and accompanying solutions, from the administrative, business and IT perspectives, and will be available to answer all of your business-specific questions.

You can register for all of this week’s sessions now:

All sessions will take place at 10:00am PST (1:00pm EST) and are free to attend.
