Pitney Bowes Selects WANdisco for 100% Global Uptime and Source Code 
Availability 
WANdisco Protects Pitney Bowes Against Downtime and Data Loss With
SVN MultiSite 
SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 --   WANdisco (LSE: WAND),
a leading provider of high-availability software for global
enterprises to meet the challenges of Big Data and distributed
software development, announced that Pitney Bowes has selected its
SVN MultiSite solution to standardize best practices across its
globally distributed development team, eliminate downtime, improve
network speed, and ensure the security and backup of its source code
data. 
WANdisco SVN MultiSite enabled Pitney Bowes, a leading provider of
customer communication technologies, to improve productivity by
providing an updated copy of repositories at each location and
reducing network latency while protecting against failure and
availability issues with its patented active-active replication
technology. With SVN MultiSite, all 1,300+ developers around the
globe, at sites in the United States, United Kingdom, India, and
Australia, have LAN-speed access to up-to-date source code, reducing
wait times for developers and allowing for continuous contribution to
the code base. SVN MultiSite also provides conflict resolution and
solves the company's backup issues.  
"WANdisco SVN MultiSite's unique active-active replication resulted
not only in a dramatic improvement in productivity and reduction in
project completion times, but also enabled us to streamline our
source code management processes by providing our distributed teams
the ability to work together instead of waiting for code at
check-in," said Jacqueline Brown, Director of Global Engineering
Services for Pitney Bowes. "With a distributed team, if they're all
writing simultaneously and seeing changes, the code is higher quality
because we're able to adapt to merge conflicts more quickly." 
SVN MultiSite also provided Pitney Bowes with continuous hot-backup
and automatic failover for all locations. In instances of both
planned and unplanned downtime, recovery is automatic and instant so
when a server comes back online, it immediately synchronizes with the
others in the cluster, undetectable to users. "In the past, if a
server went down, developers couldn't work. With SVN MultiSite, when
a server goes down, users simply connect to other servers," said
Brown. "With a cluster of nodes around the world, we're not worried
about losing data if a site goes down because it's accessible on the
rest of the nodes." 
A recent Forrester Total Economic Impact (TEI) Report completed in
July 2013 revealed that SVN MultiSite delivered a return on
investment (ROI) of 357% with
 a payback period of less than two
months. The subject of the study was a Fortune 500 company with
annual revenues of over $5 billion that had deployed SVN MultiSite
two years earlier. Forrester's TEI methodology measures costs and
cost reduction, and weighs the enabling value of a technology in
increasing the effectiveness of overall business processes. Read the
