Perforce stellt hybride Versionskontrolle vor

Neue Funktionalitäten verbinden die Vorteile von Git und Perforce für mehr Flexibilität für Entwickler und schnellere Pipelines für DevOps

Wokingham, UK, 18 März 2014 - Perforce Software präsentiert eine der umfassendsten Plattformen der Branche für hybride Versionskontrolle. Neue Funktionalitäten über die gesamte Perforce-Lösungssuite hinweg helfen Entwicklern dabei, Git gemeinsam mit dem nativen Versionierungsprotokoll von Perforce (P4) zu verwenden, ohne dass DevOps-Teams in der Implementierung und Beschleunigung ihre Continuous-Delivery-Pipelines beeinträchtigt werden. Unternehmen können nun je nach Anforderung eines bestimmten Projekts entweder zentralisierte oder verteilte Workflows verwenden - oder eine Kombination aus beiden -, ohne sich für eine Lösung entscheiden zu müssen.

„Das hybride Modell von Perforce bietet die perfekte Kombination aus der Skalierbarkeit und Zuverlässlichkeit von Perforce und der Agilität und Flexibilität von Git", so Earth Warren, Director of Information Technology bei Beachhead Studio.

Die Entwickler und das Unternehmen
In den letzten Jahren mussten sich Softwareorganisationen entscheiden: Entweder boten sie ihren Entwicklern die Flexibilität des beliebten Distributed-Version-Control-Systems (DVCS) Git, oder sie erfüllten die Anforderungen hinsichtlich Sicherheit und Agilität von DevOps, einer Entwicklungsmethode für Unternehmen.

Laut einem Gartner-Bericht von 2013[1] „gewann das DVCS-Modell für Versions- und Konfigurationskontrolle von Quellcode bei Einzelprogrammierern an Beliebtheit, da es ihnen ein schnelleres Arbeiten erlaubt und das Anlegen von neuen Code-Entwicklungspfaden vereinfacht und beschleunigt. Die Herausforderung für Führungskräfte besteht darin, diese Vorteile für die Programmierer zu erhalten, gleichzeitig aber den Team- und Unternehmensanforderungen bezüglich Qualität, Transparenz, Sicherheit und Konsistenz gerecht zu werden."

Des Weiteren haben Unternehmen Schwierigkeiten damit, umfangreiche Projekte mit Git zu verwalten. Der Grund liegt in dessen inhärenten Beschränkungen in Bezug auf große Code-Mengen und -Dateien. Die Entwickler müssen zudem für Teamarbeit und Code-Review veraltete oder selbstentwickelte Tools verwenden.

Teamarbeit ohne Kompromisse
Mit seinen hybriden Funktionalitäten für Versionsmanagement kombiniert Perforce die Flexibilität von Git mit der auch für große und sehr große Unternehmen geeigneten Perforce-Lösungssuite für Versionierung und Teamarbeit. Mit Perforce können Git-Entwickler nun einfacher in großen, globalen Teams mitarbeiten, ohne dass sich etwas an ihren Workflows ändert oder sie auf ihren Desktops zusätzliche Software installieren müssten. Perforce bietet zudem Funktionen für Repository Management und Refactoring, die für die Verwendung von Git im Enterprise-Kontext grundlegend sind. Entwicklerteams können nun entweder Git verwenden, P4Sandbox (die DVCS-Lösung von Perforce), Perforce-Clients oder eine Kombination aus diesen - und dies stets auf Basis ein und derselben Codebasis. Zudem bietet Perforce Optimierungen für global verteilte Entwicklerteams, die mit Git arbeiten. Durch seine eingebaute Replikationstechnologie macht Perforce die Git-Nutzung zu einem medienbruchfreien Erlebnis für große, verteilte Entwicklerteams - Overlays von Drittanbietern sind damit nicht nötig.

Die Funktionalitäten für gemeinsames Programmieren und Arbeiten im Team von Perforce Swarm sind nun sowohl über Git als auch über P4 nutzbar. Dies ermöglicht Codeprüfungen vor dem Commit für Git-basierten Quelltext innerhalb derselben Tools und Workflows, die auch für P4-basierten Code verwendet werden. Dadurch verbessert sich die Codequalität und Effizienz. Solche Reviews können Dateien jeder Größe und jeden Typs beinhalten - Quelltext, Images, Konfigurationen und Binärdateien wie Artwork, Schaubilder, Dokumente, etc. Perforce unterstützt nun zudem die Prüfung von 3D-Modellen aus derselben Umgebung heraus.

Ferner können der gesamte Quelltext und alle erstellen Objekte, deren Commit entweder über Git oder P4 erfolgt ist, in einem gemeinsamen Repository existieren. Dies bietet eine einheitliche Schnittstelle für Continuous Delivery zur Nutzung der DevOps-Entwicklungsmethode und ermöglicht die Anwendung konsolidierter Sicherheitsregeln, wie von der Unternehmens-IT gefordert.

Die Perforce-Lösung zur hybriden Versionskontrolle und Teamarbeit ermöglicht:

  • Codieren mit Git oder P4
  • Konsolidierte Transparenz und Rückverfolgung über die gesamte Code-Basis hinweg
  • Die Verwaltung von Dateien aller Größen und Typen in einer zentralen und sicheren Plattform
  • Gemeinsames Programmieren und Arbeiten im Team quer über alle Git- und P4-Commits
  • Entwicklungsanalysen über alle Projekte hinweg
  • Skalierung auf Enterprise-Niveau, ohne die Komplexität zu erhöhen

„Wir haben beobachtet, dass sich Innovationen sehr gut dadurch fördern lassen, die eigenen Teams diejenigen Tools verwenden zu lassen, die sie am liebsten nutzen", berichtet Christopher Seiwald, Gründer und CTO bei Perforce. „Dies ist das grundlegende Ziel hinter unserem hybriden Modell. Entwickler können in der Art und Weise arbeiten, die sie bevorzugen. Releasemanager können ihre Produkte schneller fertigstellen und das DevOps-Team kann alle Anforderungen wie Rückverfolgbarkeit, Skalierbarkeit und Nachvollziehbarkeit erfüllen. Es müssen keine Kompromisse mehr eingegangen werden."

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one technically superior to the other? What about performance and security? Does IT need either one, or both?

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ability. Many are unable to effectively engage and inspire, creating forward momentum in the direction of desired change. Renowned for its approach to leadership and emphasis on their people, organizations increasingly look to our military for insight into these challenges.
After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists looked back at what DevOps has become, and forward at what it might create next.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the works because of misaligned incentives.
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organizations must focus on what is most relevant to deliver value, reduce IT complexity, create more repeatable agile-based processes and leverage increasingly secure and stable, cloud-based infrastructure platforms.
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
