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."

Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing Cloud strategies, now is the perfect time to attend 21st Cloud Expo October 31 - November 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, and June 12-14, 2018, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, and learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is on the right path to Digital Transformation.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cloud marketplaces and DevOps are changing the economics of hosting and delivering software.

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to change their culture and cultures are very hard to change. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, "culture eats Agile for breakfast." Successful approaches are opportunistic and leverage the power of self-organization to achieve lasting change.

The current age of digital transformation means that IT organizations must adapt their toolset to cover all digital experiences, beyond just the end users’. Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be looking at some significant engineering investment. On-demand, serverless computing enables developers to try out a fleet of devices on IoT gateways with ease. With a sensor simulator built on top of AWS Lambda, it’s possible to elastically generate device sensors that report their state to the cloud.
