CollabNet: Over 200,000 Developers Served

CollabNet's Subversion Edge SCM tool has this week gone live on more than 19,000 servers, with the company estimating that 200,000 developers are using its product just six months after its introduction.

The company highlights current totals including 19,000+ live Subversion Edge deployments, which now join CollabNet's 10,000+ Apache Subversion customers. Its user base, according to CollabNet, is served by newly extended support options including an "industry first" 24*7 live chat service with Subversion experts.

While a live customer chat line is arguably less impactful (or ground breaking) than the company's work in a wider sense; 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 has also announced the immediate availability of its new "committers corner" zone, a private discussion forum where developers are provided with direct online access to CollabNet's team of Subversion committers and numerous other Subversion specialists.

"CollabNet founded the Subversion open source project in 2000 and remains the project's principal corporate sponsor. We supports more than 10,000 Subversion customers and have contributed more commits to Subversion than any other corporation," said Richard Murray, senior vice president, worldwide engineering, operations, and support, CollabNet. "The popularity of Subversion Edge is a testament to the benefits our premium Subversion distribution delivers, and our new extended Subversion Support package is the richest service offering available anywhere."
