Automated Server Replication From Perforce SCM


Perforce has focused on improved replication technology in the latest release of it Software Configuration Management (SCM) system, which now also features better support for distributed server loads and improved disaster recovery and failover provisioning. Built-in server-to-server replication of metadata and archive contents is said to make it easier for system administrators to ensure data availability to keep teams productive for longer.

"Perforce is a mission critical application for many of our customers and they rely on foolproof failover and disaster recovery strategies," said Dave Robertson, VP of international of Perforce Software. "While real-time server replication was always possible, this release makes it much quicker and easier for customers of all sizes to put automatic backup systems in place. The Perforce Server is easy to install and administer. No third-party databases or application servers are required. One part-time administrator can typically manage a Perforce installation of hundreds of users."
