CollabNet Delivers Subversion Edge to Ease Deployment, Administration

Updated: June 17, 2010

CollabNet CEO Bill Portelli says the new product fits in with the company's mission to advance the way in which Agile teams develop software. He went on to say that the company listened to the market and worked closely with global talent on the open source project.

"What's clear is that Subversion installation, administration, security, and governance have historically been command-line-driven, requiring special expertise and up-to-the-minute knowledge," Portelli says, adding that CollabNet Subversion Edge is a response to that challenge.

A closer look at Subversion Edge

In effort to make it easier to deploy Subversion servers, CollabNet Subversion Edge includes a certified bundle of all the software components of a fully functioning, Apache-based Subversion stack. This bundle effectively does away the need to search the web for software versions that work together. Then there's the administration console that installs, manages, and updates the entire stack.

Beyond the deployment, the web-based user interface also works to streamline common administrative tasks, like creating and managing Subversion repositories, starting and stopping the Subversion server, and monitoring server health. The software automatically rotates and archives the logs, and an integrated auto-update feature lets users know when compatible updates are available for any of the distribution components.
