iRazoo Selects Dynamsoft SourceAnywhere for VSS to Eliminate Data Corruption for Remote Developers

Dynamsoft Tool Boosts Uptime for Startup by Solving Productivity Challenges

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - October 31, 2007) - Dynamsoft Corporation today announced iRazoo, Inc., the user recommended, points driven, internet search engine, has implemented SourceAnywhere for VSS. iRazoo selected SourceAnywhere for VSS, a remote access add-on tool for Microsoft Visual SourceSafe, as part of their version control system in order to solve data corruption problems stemming from using VSS over HTTP.

SourceSafe was designed for small teams in a LAN environment. Since it is optimized for internal users rather than for web access, many remote developers experience low performance, security and data corruption when trying to access VSS database over the internet. Because the corruption issues are recurring, many remote teams are drained of valuable development time.

"SourceSafe 2005 worked fine on a local setting, but it doesn't work very well over the internet," commented Neal Verma, Founder and CEO, iRazoo. By implementing SourceAnywhere for VSS, iRazoo's remote development team was able to focus on development instead of corruption issues. "With virtually no downtime, we have seen an overall improvement in productivity. We were able to get back on track because of Dynamsoft," stated Verma. In fact, with corruption problems solved, iRazoo has saved approximately $6,000 a month in time and productivity is elevated.

SourceAnywhere for VSS, which is recommended by Microsoft as a remote access and cross platform solution to VSS, was created with four core objectives in mind. These include performance, to deliver the fastest remote access possible over TCP/IP; security, to apply a fail-safe approach to moving code assets across the Web; multi-platform support, to provide broad platform support and integrate with the industry's most popular OS and IDEs; and SourceSafe GUI similarity, to ensure easy integration for developers. SourceAnywhere for VSS also dramatically reduces the chance of VSS database corruption by first sending the files to the SourceAnywhere for VSS server and then operating the VSS database through the LAN.
