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."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no idea how to get a proper answer.
"We are an all-flash array storage provider but our focus has been on VM-aware storage specifically for virtualized applications," stated Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and on the other side, organizations that will find themselves as roadkill on the technology highway.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of SolidFire, discussed how to leverage this concept to seize on the creativity and business agility to make it real.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Peter McCallum, Vice President of Datacenter Solutions at FalconStor, discussed using predictive analytics to monitor and adjust functions like performance, capacity, caching, security, optimization, uptime and service levels; identify trends or patterns to forecast future requirements; detect problems before they result in failures or downtime; and convert insight into actions like changing policies, storage tiers, or DR strategies.
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.

Application transformation and DevOps practices are two sides of the same coin. Enterprises that want to capture value faster, need to deliver value faster – time value of money principle. To do that enterprises need to build cloud-native apps as microservices by empowering teams to build, ship, and run in production. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Neil Gehani, senior product manager at HPE, discussed what every business should plan for how to structure their teams to deliver.
You are moving to the Cloud. The question is not if, it’s when. Now that your competitors are in the cloud and lapping you, your “when” better hurry up and get here.
