    perforce server clustering

    Perforce Server has an unmatched track record for stability and high performance. Modern businesses like Salesforce, VMware and others run millions of commands against their server instances each day, without interruption. In the latest release of the Perforce Server we have moved the bar even higher. New support for both horizontal scalability and high availability configurations make it possible to extend the platform to serve tens of thousands of users in a single environment, and any downtime is a thing of the past.

    2015 predictions about the world of software

    Over the last five years, DevOps has successfully brought Development and Operations teams together to meet the common goal of releasing better quality software faster.

To successfully foster this next-generation collaboration, tools will be consolidated to create a “single source of truth” for all assets—borrowing a fundamental principle of DevOps and Continuous Delivery. Software developers have used version control software to manage source code repositories as long as software has been developed. And as businesses embrace DevOps practices across their organizations, they will similarly make broader use of version control.
