Why Choose WANdisco for Subversion Support?

We Support the World's Largest Subversion Implementations
For over five years WANdisco's software has supported the world's largest Subversion implementations, with as many as 40,000 users and 2,500 Subversion repositories in a single organization.

We Have Long-Term, Experienced Core Subversion Developers On Staff
WANdisco has a highly experienced team of core Subversion developers on staff who are members of the Subversion community. Some of these individuals have been working on Subversion since its inception and all of them hold the status required within the community to make changes to the Subversion code base. This enables us to deliver critical fixes without delay.

Global Coverage From the United States and Europe
Our support centers are located in our offices in San Ramon, California and Sheffield, UK. All of our support staff are highly motivated full-time employees of WANdisco, based out of these offices. We do not subcontract to third parties located in countries where costs are low, or intellectual property rights are not fully protected. This enables us to provide secure, high quality live support to our customers located anywhere in the world, during their normal business hours, as well as on a 24-by-7 basis.

Giving Back to the Subversion Community
The profits from Subversion support contracts purchased from WANdisco go directly into the continuing development and enhancement of Subversion and help support the activities of the Subversion community.

Certified Subversion Binaries
WANdisco's certified Subversion open source software is a complete, fully tested version of Subversion based on the most recent, stable release, including the latest fixes. The software is backed by our dedicated team of Subversion development, QA and support professionals focused exclusively on delivering the highest quality version of the software. Our developers have been involved in the Subversion open source project since its inception and have the status within the community to make changes to Subversion's code base. This ensures fast delivery of fixes and enhancements. WANdisco's team of Subversion contributors is led by Branko Čibej, WANdisco's Director of Subversion.

Update Server
Feature updates and patches for the Subversion binaries obtained from WANdisco are available automatically from WANdisco's update server.

Complete Access Control and Audit Capabilities for Subversion
Not only are we offering the best Subversion support in the market but you also get peace of mind in the knowledge that you have full authorization, authentication, access control and audit capabilities that go well beyond what Subversion provides on its own. There’s no hand cranking Apache Authz files in a text editor – we provide an easy-to-use, point-and-click interface enabling you to implement and maintain the most complex security policies with minimal effort. Valuable intellectual property is protected and a complete audit trail is provided, insuring compliance with SOX and other regulatory requirements.

Indemnification Coverage
In addition to the many benefits of using open source software, there can also be the risk of exposure to intellectual property claims. WANdisco's indemnification coverage provides protection in the event that a third party files an intellectual property claim against your company based on the use of Subversion open source software obtained from WANdisco. Protection is provided against four types of intellectual property infringements: patents, trademarks, trade secrets, and copyrights.

Subject to the terms specified in the contract, WANdisco covers repair, replacement, legal expenses and damages up to a limit of four times the value of the Subversion Support Services Agreement. Claims are subject to the terms and conditions of the agreement. Indemnification coverage is only available with WANdisco's Platinum and Platinum Plus support contracts.

Subversion System Health Check
This service is available to customers who purchase a Gold Plus, Platinum or Platinum Plus Subversion Support Services Agreement. WANdisco's support engineers access your Subversion server remotely from one of our support centers to review your hardware, software, and network configuration to identify potential performance bottlenecks and other areas of risk. We will provide a report of our findings and make recommendations for changes we believe will be beneficial.

"Bug Buddy"
The bug buddy is a named Subversion developer who has status in the Subversion open source community to make changes to Subversion's code base. The bug buddy provides : (1) a single point of contact for your priority one support issues who will manage them until they are resolved ; and (2) an advocate within the Subversion open source community who can champion your requests for enhancements to Subversion to be made available in future releases.

"8 Hours of Free Consulting or Training"
Subversion Platinum Plus support offers the option of choosing one free day of Subversion consulting, or 8 hours of free web-based training to help you get the most out of Subversion. Your free consulting day can be put toward our standard consulting packages or focus on specific requirements such as hook script development, performance, backup and recovery, or security.

WANdisco Open Source Subversion or Community Open Source Subversion?

WANdisco provides support for both versions of Subversion software and the pricing is the same for each support level. However, if you obtain your Subversion source code or any fixes from a source other than WANdisco, indemnification is not included.

Subversion Client Support

WANdisco also provides support for the widely used TortoiseSVN client.
