Subversion 1.7 migration made easy with WANdisco sherpas

WANdisco, a leading corporate sponsor of the Apache Subversion project, expand Sherpa brand with three new migration packs.


WANdisco, a leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, and a major corporate sponsor of the Subversion project, today announced that it will be launching three migration packs for customers who are looking to migrate to Subversion 1.7.

The three packages expand WANdisco’s Sherpa brand, which draws on their team of highly skilled support engineers and core Subversion developers to provide preemptive advice and support for companies migrating to Subversion from products including ClearCase, PVCS, StarTeam, MKS, CVS, and users running earlier releases of Subversion. WANdisco Sherpas leverage their extensive experience to guide customers around the potential pitfalls of migration, and enable teams to get the most out of Subversion.

The three migration packs, aptly named after mountains, will include a set amount of consulting time and an appropriated professional support contract. Customers will also receive a preferential rate should they require further consulting time.
