WANdisco Names Hyrum Wright to Lead Subversion Open Source Efforts

WANdisco, a leading provider of infrastructure software for replication, scalability and high availability, today announced that Hyrum Wright has joined the company to lead its open source team. WANdisco announced the hiring of core Subversion committers last October as the company moved to become a major corporate sponsor of the project.

“I am very excited to be joining WANdisco and taking on this new role,” said Wright. “WANdisco recently assembled a very talented team of senior core committers and WANdisco’s customers have some of the largest Subversion implementations in the world. The Subversion community will benefit greatly from this deep expertise and I’m thrilled to be leading these efforts.”

Hyrum Wright is currently president of the Subversion Corporation and has been the release manager for the Subversion project since early 2008. He is a frequent presenter on Subversion related topics at industry conferences. During his involvement with the Subversion project, Hyrum has worked on a number of major Subversion features including merge tracking and the next generation working copy library (wc-ng). Hyrum holds an M.S. in Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and is currently working toward a PhD in Software Engineering at the same University. Hyrum received his B.S. in Computer Engineering from Brigham Young University.

“We’re delighted that Hyrum has agreed to join WANdisco and lead our efforts with the Subversion project,” said David Richards, President and CEO of WANdisco. “Subversion’s growth in the enterprise has been nothing short of staggering and this is down to the hard work of individuals such as Hyrum. This demonstrates our long-term commitment to Subversion.”
