Navis Selects WANdisco's Subversion MultiSite to Support Development Between Global Sites

Global Leader in Technology for Managing Cargo Movement Goes 24-by-7, Eliminates Downtime and Implements WANdisco's Subversion MultiSite for Over 500 Worldwide Users

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2012) - WANdisco (LSE: WAND) a leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, and a corporate contributor to the Subversion project has announced that global logistics technology leader Navis -- a subsidiary of Cargotec, has experienced a 10x improvement in Subversion performance and achieved 24-by-7 uptime across all of their development sites after implementing WANdisco's Subversion MultiSite.

Navis combines industry best practices with innovative technology and world-class services to manage the movement of over 25% of the world's cargo containers through major ports worldwide. Navis recently replaced svnsync -- the tool they had used to mirror Subversion repositories to all of their development sites,with WANdisco's enterprise-class Subversion MultiSite product. After implementing Subversion MultiSite, Navis reported:

  • 10x faster check-in and checkout times.
  • 24-by-7 availability with no downtime -- including maintenance periods.
  • All locations receiving immediate access to the latest version of the repository.
  • Dramatically improved collaboration between their globally distributed development teams.
  • Low administrative overhead as the entire implementation can be managed from a single location.

"Prior to implementing Subversion MultiSite, we experienced problems with downtime and our developer productivity," said Steven Schleiger, IT Director, Navis. "Check-in and checkout times were particularly problematic at remote sites. Our previous solution also didn't meet our requirements for continuous integration. We needed and found a fast reliable solution from WANdisco that provided 24-by-7 availability for all of our sites."

WANdisco has recently published a case study of the Navis implementation detailing the challenges faced with svnsync and how they implemented Subversion MultiSite to overcome these obstacles -- taking their development organization to a new level.

Subversion MultiSite combines WANdisco's one-of-a-kind replication technology and intelligent load balancing software to ensure that a central Subversion server is no longer a single point of failure and ensures that users at every site globally have access to the latest changes. A free download of Subversion MultiSite is available from WANdisco's website.
