  • 2.
    • Subversion MultiSite :
    • Peer-to-peer architecture with no single point of failure.
      • Not master-slave or multi-master .
    • Subversion repositories connected over a WAN synchronize automatically with each write operation.
    • Developers at all locations experience LAN speed performance for both read and write operations .
    • Built-in hot backup and automated disaster recovery features make third party solutions completely unnecessary.
    • Transparent implementation doesn’t change Subversion’s behavior, so there’s no retraining.
    The Application
  • 3.
    • For IT Organizations:
    • Administrative overhead:
      • Performing backups and other routine maintenance
      • Maintaining system availability and dealing with disaster recovery
      • Manually applying patches and performing upgrades
    • Third party components add to the complexity
      • Operating systems
      • Databases
      • Web Servers
      • Plug-ins
    The Challenges
  • 4.
    • Distributed environments compound these challenges.
    • Projects take longer to complete
    • Time to market delays lead to lost revenue
    The Challenges
  • 5.
    • For ISVs:
    • Longer development cycles.
    • Software vendors have to restrict the list of supported platforms.
      • No software vendor can QA every new release on every platform.
      • This can limit an ISVs potential market.
    • Added support burden
    • Longer sales cycles
    The Challenges
  • 6.
    • Hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) can
    • address some of these challenges:
      • Deployment is immediate.
      • Maintenance and support is handled primarily by the SaaS vendor.
    • However, some enterprise applications may not be a fit for the SaaS model:
      • Applications that require heavy customization.
      • Applications that need to integrate with legacy in-house systems .
    • A hybrid delivery model is emerging that combines SaaS with software appliances.
    • WANdisco will soon be offering a hybrid solution leveraging Amazon’s EC2.
    The Challenges
  • 7.
    • Product Delivery as a Software Appliance:
    • Removes cost and complexity by eliminating environmental dependencies.
    • Combines zero-latency deployment of SaaS with flexibility, control and security of behind the firewall solutions.
    • Up and running in 2 minutes!!
    • Update server provides latest patches and upgrades automatically to all sites upon request.
      • Eliminates risk from inconsistent manual processes.
    The Solution
  • 8.
    • WANdisco packages the appropriate build for each customer’s vm containing all of the components:
      • WANdisco’s Subversion MultiSite
      • Apache
      • Subversion
      • JeOS (rPath Linux)
        • Interfaces with different VM environments
        • Provides everything for ISO deployment
    • Subversion MultiSite can be deployed at locations where there’s no staff to support any of the components.
    The Solution
  • 9.
    • All of the components are preconfigured for optimal performance:
      • Apache Web Server is preconfigured for Subversion MultiSite only, unlike many standard implementations.
    • rPath’s JeOS has a smaller footprint and consumes fewer resources than a standard Linux OS:
      • Stripped down version of Linux tuned just for Subversion MultiSite and the VM.
      • Eliminates unneeded Linux components that support a broad range of applications and hardware.
    • Many VMs now provide direct access from JeOS to the hardware via device drivers.
      • Removes virtualization overhead.
    The Solution
  • 10.
    • Download MultiSite.vmx file from WANdisco.
    • Just load the file into a virtual machine directory on a server at each site.
    • The Subversion MultiSite Software Appliance becomes a guest operating system on the host server at each site.
    • Each instance of the Subversion MultiSite Software Appliance has its own unique IP address.
  • 11. Demo
  • 12.
    • Removes cost and complexity from deploying and maintaining enterprise applications by eliminating environmental dependencies.
    • Requires no tradeoffs in terms of Subversion MultiSite’s functionality or performance.
    • Fully supported Just Enough Operating System (JeOS) based on Linux delivers everything needed for deployment under a VM, or on industry standard hardware.
    • Available for any target virtualization environment including VMware ESX, Citrix XenServer, and Windows with Hyper-V.
    • Automatic updates for all appliance components, including Subversion, Apache and WANdisco eliminate manual upgrades and patches.
