SVN MultiSite Plus enables non-stop performance, scalability and backup, alongside 24/7 availability for globally distributed Apache Subversion deployments. This new product takes full advantage of recent enhancements to our patented active-active replication technology to improve flexibility, scalability, performance and ultimately developer and administrator productivity.
“SVN MultiSite has been improving performance and productivity for global enterprises since 2006 and SVN MultiSite Plus builds on those features for even greater benefits,” said David Richards, WANdisco CEO. “We’re committed to providing organizations with the most robust and flexible solutions possible and we’re confident SVN MultiSite Plus will meet and exceed the requirements of the largest globally distributed software development organizations.”

We’re pleased to announce that WANdisco will be co-hosting a free Apache Hadoop webinar with Tony Baer, Ovum’s lead Big Data analyst. Ovum is an independent analyst and consultancy firm specializing in the IT and telecommunications industries.
This webinar, ‘Big Data – Enterprise-Enabling Hadoop for the Data Center’, will cover the key issues of availability, performance and scalability and how Apache Hadoop is evolving to meet these requirements.
“This webinar will discuss the importance of availability, performance and scalability,” said Ovum’s Tony Baer. “Ovum believes that for Hadoop to become successfully adopted in the enterprise, that it must become a first class citizen with IT and the data center. Availability, performance and scalability are key issues, and also where there is significant innovation occurring. We’ll discuss how the Hadoop platform is evolving to meet these requirements.”
Hadoop components and the role of reliability and performance in those components
Disaster recovery challenges faced by globally distributed organizations and how replication technology is crucial to business continuity
The importance of seamless Hadoop migration from the public cloud to private clouds, especially for organizations that require secure 24/7 access with real-time performance
‘Big Data – Enterprise-Enabling Hadoop for the Data Center’ will be held on Tuesday, April 30th at 10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern. Register for this free webinar here.
It’s cross-platform – SmartSVN runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, so you can continue using the operating system (OS) that works the best for you. It can also be integrated into your OS, via Mac’s Finder Integration or Windows Shell.
Everything you need, out of the box – SmartSVN comes complete with all the tools you need to manage your Subversion projects:
Conflict solver – this feature combines the freedom of a general, three-way-merge with the ability to detect and resolve any conflicts that occur during the development lifecycle.
File compare – this allows you to make inner-line comparisons and directly edit the compared files.
Built-in SSH client – allows users to access servers using the SSH protocol. This security-conscious protocol encrypts every piece of communication between the client and the server, for additional protection.
A complete view of your project at a glance – the most important files (such as conflicted, modified or missing files) are placed at the top of the file list. SmartSVN also highlights which directories contain local modifications, which directories have been changed in the repository, and whether individual files have been modified locally or in the central repo. This makes it easy to get a quick overview of the state of your project.
Fully customizable – maximize productivity by fine-tuning your SmartSVN installation to suit your particular needs: Change keyboard shortcuts, write your own plugin with the SmartSVN API, group revisions to personalize your display, create Change Sets, and alter the context menus and toolbars to suit you. You can learn more about customizing SmartSVN at our ‘5 Ways to Customize SmartSVN’ blog post.
Comprehensive bug tracker support – Trac and JIRA are both fully supported.
Multitude of support options – SmartSVN users have access to a range of free support, from refcards to blogs and documentation, the SmartSVN forum and a Twitter account maintained by our open source experts. If you need extra support with your SmartSVN installation, expert email support is included with SmartSVN Professional licenses.
Want to learn more about SmartSVN? On April 18th, WANdisco will be be holding a free ‘Introduction to SmartSVN’ webinar covering everything you need to get off to a great start with this popular client:
Checkouts, working folders, editing files and commits

At WANdisco, we firmly believe that Apache Subversion is a commercial quality version control system ready for the enterprise. With everything that Subversion has to offer enterprise users, it’s easy to see why it’s becoming such a popular choice:
Our professional support services for Subversion includes:
Enterprise training is another option for users who need additional support with their Subversion installation.
Despite all the benefits, there are some potential issues to consider when working with large Subversion deployments. If you’re using multiple SVN repositories across globally distributed teams, you may encounter the following challenges:
To help enterprises overcome these challenges, we’ve just announced an ongoing series of free webinars. Over the course of each hour-long ‘Scaling Subversion for the Enterprise’ session, our expert Solution Architect Patrick Burma will cover all the issues enterprises can encounter when using multiple Subversion repositories across globally distributed teams. He will also discuss the accompanying solutions from the administrative, business and IT perspectives, and will be available to answer specific questions.

This month, we launched a trio of innovative Hadoop products: the world’s first production-ready distro; a wizard-driven management dashboard; and the first and only 100% uptime solution for Apache Hadoop.
We started this string of Big Data announcements with WANdisco Distro (WDD) a fully tested, free-to-download version of Apache Hadoop 2. WDD is based on the most recent Hadoop release, includes all the latest fixes and undergoes the same rigorous quality assurance process as our enterprise software solutions.
This release paved the way for our enterprise Hadoop solutions, and we announced the WANdisco Hadoop Console (WHC) shortly after. WHC is a plug-and-play solution that makes it easy for enterprises to deploy, monitor and manage their Hadoop implementations, without the need for expert HBase or HDFS knowledge.
The final product in this month’s Big Data announcements was WANdisco Non-Stop NameNode. Our patented technology makes WANdisco Non-Stop Namenode the first and only 100% uptime solution for Hadoop, and offers a string of benefits for enterprise users:
To support the needs of the Apache Hadoop community, we’ve also launched a dedicated Hadoop forum. At this forum, users can get advice on their Hadoop installation and connect with fellow users, including WANdisco’s core Apache Hadoop developers Dr. Konstantin V. Shvachko, Dr. Konstantin Boudnik, and Jagane Sundar.
For Apache Subversion users, we announced the next webinars in our free training series:

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.
