WANdisco Git MultiSite adds GitLab support

Enhances Performance, Scalability for Global Teams

WANdisco (LSE: WAND) WANdisco (LSE: WAND) today announced a strategic partnership with GitLab. Git MultiSite for GitLab will enable large distributed development teams using Git to deploy GitLab for collaboration and code review with the performance, scalability, and automated disaster recovery provided by WANdisco’s patented active-active replication.

GitLab is a leading social coding environment, offering repository management, code review, issue tracking, activity feeds, and wikis for teams using Git. GitLab is fully compatible with LDAP and Active Directory, and is tailored to run on a highly available cluster.

Git MultiSite for GitLab leverages WANdisco’s patented Distributed Coordination Engine (DConE) to turn servers at every location into fully writable Git peer nodes. Active-active replication removes the bottleneck of Git’s master repository architecture, providing 100% uptime and LAN-speed performance for Git developers at every location. Changes pushed to one server are transparently reflected to every other, letting distributed teams collaborate effectively and eliminating the hassle of Git mirror configuration and replica upkeep.

Administrators can view the status of all servers and repositories at a glance, and easily add servers and repositories to support new teams and projects without any downtime. Every Git repository is fully read/write enabled and continuously in sync.

"Over 100,000 organizations use GitLab to develop software, and that number is rapidly growing," said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco. "Git MultiSite for GitLab combines WANdisco’s patented technology with GitLab to create a scalable, cost-effective solution for global collaboration."

WANdisco offers the only solution to push to a local server in multiple continents," said Sytse Sijbrandij, CEO of GitLab. "We have seen great demand for this among companies that develop software with worldwide teams. And we’re very happy that enterprise users can now combine this with the effective code review tools of GitLab Enterprise Edition."

As part of the partnership, WANdisco will resell GitLab Products as part of a fully integrated solution.
