AccuRev this week introduced its AccuRev 4.7 software change and configuration management software, featuring enhancements for scalability and personalized process visualization.
With these capabilities, enterprises can scale to accommodating growing development teams, AccuRev said. "The major functionality in this release that we're introducing is the ability to support multiserver solutions," in which servers can be added to an AccuRev deployment locally and remotely, said Cliff Utstein, vice president of marketing at AccuRev. Teams can be supported on their own distributed, commodity servers; user sites do not need to invest in high-end server clusters to run AccuRev, Utstein said.
Previously, AccuRev offered a centralized model with replica servers for remote locations. "Before, you tied everybody into the central server," he said. Now, projects and users can have their own servers for greater scalability, said Utstein.
Only the central server needs dedicated administration. "All the other servers are administered from the central server automatically, Utstein said.
Other improvements in version 4.7 include the following:
- Boosted support for large workspaces, in which AccuRev 4.7 can manage hundreds of thousands of files in a single workspace.
- Personalized visual filtering for departments, teams, and individuals, in which development teams can filter large, concurrent process structures that may contain thousands of unique projects, teams, and developers. Managers can see development activity related to work being done by their team or work in active development.
Prices vary depending on configuration. A single-user, perpetual license is US$1,495.
