Perforce Patent-Pending Concurrency Technology Yields up to 24X Performance Boost

Versioning and Collaboration Pioneer Introduces Extreme Concurrency Capability That Significantly Speeds up Continuous Delivery

ALAMEDA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 --


Key Points:

  • Perforce has introduced new concurrency technology in its version management platform that sets a new threshold for throughput in large-scale environments.
  • Early customers using the new capabilities have benchmarked up to 24X increase in the number of concurrent transactions
  • Customers have also realized up to 6X gains in server capacity without any changes to existing hardware.
  • Benefits include significant increases to developer productivity, reductions in the requirements for machine resources and decrease in maintenance and administration costs.

Perforce Software today announced new patent-pending technology in its version management and collaboration platform that significantly boosts performance of development and DevOps workflows in large-scale environments.

Well reputed for its existing performance and reliability, and with proven sites running tens of millions of versioning transactions a day, Perforce has raised the bar for the performance of versioning engines. The latest release of Perforce's versioning engine, P4D, gives Perforce customers dramatically higher throughput in high contention environments, while substantially increasing the load capacity of their installations without upgrades to existing hardware.

Perforce's new concurrency technology increases the number of operations that can be executed simultaneously against P4D. The gain in throughput results in faster cross-team development workflows, as well as faster completion of build, test and integrate processes running against P4D. This boosts overall performance for sites where large numbers of concurrent transactions might be executed per day -- as is often the case with organizations that have implemented highly automated Continuous Delivery practices.

Field-Tested in Production Environments
Early adopters of Perforce's new concurrency technology have seen significant benefits across the entire organization:

  • A market-leading security software provider saw a 24X increase in transaction throughput, boosting continuous delivery processes end-to-end.
  • A Fortune 50 electronics manufacturer saw a 6X gain in the transaction capacity of their existing servers, improving operational efficiency without requiring hardware upgrades.
  • A major gaming company saw a 10X increase in throughput for its most commonly used developer operations, increasing developer productivity in a distributed team spanning worldwide locations.

"Our customers will see dramatic improvements to what is already industry-leading scalability and throughput," said Perforce founder and CEO Christopher Seiwald. "They will be able to speed-up concurrent use on their existing systems and enable developers to speed up their workflows without any hardware updates."

This sixteen (16) hour course provides an introduction to DevOps, the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster.
This is going to be a live demo on a production ready CICD pipeline which automate the deployment of application onto AWS ECS and Fargate. The same pipeline will automate deployment into various environment such as Test, UAT, and Prod. The pipeline will go through various stages such as source, build, test, approval, UAT stage, Prod stage. The demo will utilize only AWS services including AWS CodeCommit, Codebuild, code pipeline, Elastic container service (ECS), ECR, and Fargate.
Digital transformation is about embracing digital technologies into a company's culture to better connect with its customers, automate processes, create better tools, enter new markets, etc. Such a transformation requires continuous orchestration across teams and an environment based on open collaboration and daily experiments. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Alex Casalboni, Technical (Cloud) Evangelist at Cloud Academy, explored and discussed the most urgent unsolved challenges to achieve full cloud literacy in the enterprise world.
CloudEXPO | DevOpsSUMMIT | DXWorldEXPO Silicon Valley 2019 will cover all of these tools, with the most comprehensive program and with 222 rockstar speakers throughout our industry presenting 22 Keynotes and General Sessions, 250 Breakout Sessions along 10 Tracks, as well as our signature Power Panels. Our Expo Floor will bring together the leading global 200 companies throughout the world of Cloud Computing, DevOps, IoT, Smart Cities, FinTech, Digital Transformation, and all they entail. As your enterprise creates a vision and strategy that enables you to create your own unique, long-term success, learning about all the technologies involved is essential. Companies today not only form multi-cloud and hybrid cloud architectures, but create them with built-in cognitive capabilities.
In today's always-on world, customer expectations have changed. Competitive differentiation is delivered through rapid software innovations, the ability to respond to issues quickly and by releasing high-quality code with minimal interruptions. DevOps isn't some far off goal; it's methodologies and practices are a response to this demand. The demand to go faster. The demand for more uptime. The demand to innovate. In this keynote, we will cover the Nutanix Developer Stack. Built from the foundation of software-defined infrastructure, Nutanix has rapidly expanded into full application lifecycle management across any infrastructure or cloud .Join us as we delve into how the Nutanix Developer Stack makes it easy to build hybrid cloud applications by weaving DBaaS, micro segmentation, event driven lifecycle operations, and both financial and cloud governance together into a single unified st...
