Extended Support Now Available, Including Industry-First 24*7 Live Chat with Subversion Experts
BRISBANE, Calif., April 19, 2011 — CollabNet®, the leader in Agile development in the Cloud, announced today that CollabNet Subversion Edge, the premier distribution of the world’s most popular SCM tool, has gone live on more than 18,000 servers and is being used by an estimated 200,000 developers only six months after its introduction. The additional support CollabNet Subversion Edge provides to the Subversion user community adds to the support CollabNet is already delivering to its millions of Subversion users. The platform’s features were recently recognized by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), which named Subversion Edge a finalist for a CODiE Award in the business software category, “Best Use of Open Source Technology.”
Additionally, CollabNet also announced today the immediate availability of its new extended support offering to all of its Subversion users. The offering is the most full-featured commercial Subversion support package available. More information about CollabNet’s Subversion support offerings and free downloads of CollabNet Subversion Edge are available at www.collab.net.
The new extended Subversion Support offering is available to users of both Subversion and CollabNet Subversion Edge. Features include:
- Committers Corner, a private discussion forum where support customers are provided direct on-line access to CollabNet’s team of Subversion committers and numerous other Subversion specialists.
- Live Chat, a Subversion industry-first service that provides real-time, around-the-clock instant messaging with CollabNet’s Subversion subject matter experts.
CollabNet founded the Subversion open source project in 2000 and remains the project’s principal corporate sponsor and the world’s leading provider of Subversion software and services. CollabNet supports more than 10,000 Subversion customers and has contributed more commits to Subversion than any other corporation.
“CollabNet has been an invaluable help to us during our migration to CollabNet Subversion/Subversion Edge amidst a system failure which forced our department to requisition and provision a replacement server rather quickly,” said Stephan Noetzel, director, Information Systems, ShotSpotter, Inc. “Without their knowledge and enthusiasm, we would not have been able to finish up the installations and troubleshooting so quickly.”
“CollabNet continues to invest and to innovate to support the ever-growing worldwide Subversion community,” said Richard Murray, senior vice president, worldwide engineering, operations and support, CollabNet. “The popularity of Subversion Edge is a testament to the valuable benefits our premium Subversion distribution delivers, and our new extended Subversion Support package is the richest service offering available anywhere.”
