Learn about Perforce Remote Administration at the Conference


Perforce is pretty easy to install and maintain. Still, every Perforce administrator has to regularly perform at least a few tasks to back up the data and keep the server healthy. Even a Lexus needs an oil change once in a while! At the upcoming User Conference, I'm delivering a short talk about the Perforce Remote Administration program. The Remote Administration program provides expert Perforce staff to handle these routine tasks (and some non-routine ones). If you're responsible for maintaining a Perforce server, this talk is for you. In the course of describing the Remote Administration program, I'll also be describing our current thinking on best practices for server maintenance. I'll be covering topics like:

  • What Remote Administration offers
  • The cost-benefit analysis for Remote Administration
  • Recommended daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance tasks
  • Best practices for server backup and optimization

Although the talk will be brief, a lot of Perforce experts from Support and Consulting will be at the conference. You'll have plenty of chances to ask questions and dig deeper into the details. I look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!
