WANdisco announces Git MultiSite for Gerrit

WANdisco (LSE: WAND), a leading provider of high-availability software for global enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed software development, announced Git MultiSite for Gerrit, enabling large distributed development teams using Git to deploy Gerrit for enhanced code review and global collaboration across all locations in real-time.

Originally developed at Google, Gerrit is a cornerstone of the Android Open Source Project popular among enterprise development teams for its powerful code review workflow and simple integration with large deployments.

Git MultiSite for Gerrit improves upon Gerrit's centralized architecture by eliminating the bottleneck of a master server, turning servers at every location into fully writable Git peer nodes. WANdisco's patented Distributed Coordination Engine (DConE) ensures that Git changes pushed to one Gerrit server are transparently reflected to every other, so that conflicts are immediately identified for resolution to keep development running and eliminate dependence on unreliable Git mirrors.

Administrators can also view the status of all Gerrit servers and repositories at a glance, and easily add servers and repositories to support new teams and projects without any downtime.

"WANdisco is constantly developing new products that meet the demands of large global organizations and Git MultiSite for Gerrit is a direct response to consistent requests from our enterprise customers," said David Richards, Chairman and CEO of WANdisco. "No other solution is able to leverage the collaboration and code review capabilities of Gerrit with the reliability of Git MultiSite. It is the perfect solution to enable distributed development teams to deliver higher quality software at a much lower cost."
