Key features of SVN MultiSite Plus

SVN MultiSite Plus delivers LAN-speed performance and 100% availability, plus enhancements that are particularly useful to enterprises with complex deployments.

Add and remove servers on the fly+

Dynamic group evolution lets you add and remove servers and repositories without any downtime or impact on users.

Repository level replication+

Provides granular control for selective replication of specific repositories between sites for flexibility, security and efficiency.

Configurable quorum schema+

New node types enable increased availability and deployment flexibility for more efficient use of hardware and other IT infrastructure.

Support for all Subversion protocols+

Supports: http://, https://, svn:// and svn+ssh://. Subversion's functionality doesn't change after implementation.

Parallel transaction processing

Each repository has its own transaction queue, allowing replicated transactions to be processed in parallel across multiple repositories for improved SVN performance and control.

Clustering for two or more nodes

Clusters can be implemented to support load balancing. A minimum of three nodes is recommended to safely support both high availability and load balancing.

The impact of SVN MultiSite Plus across the enterprise

SVN MultiSite Plus benefits for developers

Get access to everything you need

Repositories at every site are readable as well as writeable for the entire code base.

Share progress as it’s made

No need to hold back commits until the end of the day or week, repositories are always in sync.

Collaborate globally instead of working in silos

Commit and checkout the same files simultaneously from different locations. Resolve update conflicts as they occur.

Your work is never lost

Recovery is automatic after a network outage or server crash. No manual recovery needed.

Get the job done faster

Experience LAN-speed SVN performance for both read and write operations across all sites.

Eliminate additional workload

No need to set up site-specific branches or extra merge operations to avoid conflicts.

Use the tools you’re familiar with

Works with all major Subversion clients with no configuration changes. Continue using the same tools. SVN MultiSite Plus is written in Java and runs under Unix, Linux and Windows operating systems.

SVN MultiSite Plus benefits for administrators

No additional hardware required

Normally installed on the same server as Subversion, or the Apache Web Server used to front-end Subversion at each site.

Easy installation

Intuitive browser interface makes configuration simple. Multiple sites can be up and running in no time.

No change in client configuration

Transparent implementation means client configurations don't change.

No retraining

Works with all major Subversion clients. Written in Java and runs under Unix, Linux and Windows operating systems.

Automated features for easy administration
  • Built-in self-healing capabilities for hands-off disaster recovery.
  • Automatic synchronization for new servers or existing servers brought back online.
  • Automatic replication with each write operation and guaranteed consistency across all sites.
Centralized administration

All sites can be administered from a single location.

SVN MultiSite Plus benefits for managers

Significant savings

Significant cost savings are a result of reductions in: development time, downtime, administrative overhead and network bandwidth usage.

More efficient use of global talent

The most talented developers can work together regardless of location, resulting in higher quality in less time. When combined with cross-platform SmartSVN, distributed teams use the same interface for even greater productivity – without retraining.

No retraining

No change to Subversion functionality. Teams continue to use the clients and tools they're familiar with.

Peace of mind

No downtime or data loss with automatic failover and recovery – no human intervention or additional third party backup and recovery solutions required.

Consistent security enforcement

When SVN MultiSite Plus is used with WANdisco's SVN Access Control, security configuration is replicated to all sites automatically as are any changes. This enables consistent security policy enforcement across all locations.

Proven technology

Fortune Global 1000 companies as well as startups find that WANdisco's MultiSite solutions pay for themselves many times over during the first year of use. See Forrester's Total Economic Impact study for more information.
