SSP Selects WANdisco’s Subversion MultiSite to Support Development Between Australia, UK and South Africa

SSP, a leading provider of software solutions for the global insurance and financial services industries and WANdisco, a leading provider of infrastructure software for replication, scalability and high availability, today announced that SSP has selected Subversion MultiSite to support developers located at sites in Australia, South Africa and the UK. SSP joins a growing list of globally distributed organizations that use WANdisco’s unique technology to drive significant time and cost out of their software development lifecycles.

Before implementing Subversion MultiSite, all three teams relied on a central Subversion server. Slow and unreliable networks between SSP’s locations, combined with a centralized build process caused delays throughout the entire development cycle.

After SSP implemented Subversion MultiSite, network performance and reliability were no longer issues. Now, the latest changes are always available everywhere and everything happens at local area network speed. SSP’s distributed developers work as one virtual team and run builds in parallel at each location.

“Subversion MultiSite has transformed our software development process,” said David Stokes, IT Manager, SSP. “We can now run builds at every site immediately which means that nobody is waiting for a build to happen in a different time zone. The bottom line is that we improved build times by over 500% and reduced our development cycles by 40%.”

SSP also evaluated svnsync, but found that it wasn’t reliable enough and couldn’t address their network performance issues. The ability to run builds locally at each development site was a key requirement that svnsync’s read-only slave repositories couldn’t support.

“We looked at using svnsync, but we found that it wasn’t as stable as it needed to be and wasn’t a fit for what we were trying to accomplish with our build process,” continued Stokes.

“We are extremely pleased that SSP has realized the savings in time and cost that WANdisco’s unique technology brings to the application development lifecycle for a globally distributed organization,” said David Richards, President and CEO of WANdisco. “SSP’s experience is consistent with what we hear from our customers across the board.”
