Perforce Supports IBM Apsera
December 11, 2017

Perforce Software announced the 2017.2 release of its version control solution, Helix Core, which now supports IBM Aspera high-performance file transfer software.

"Our customers have always relied on Perforce for high-performance collaboration and development," said Tim Russell, Chief Product Officer at Perforce. "Our 2017.2 release of Helix Core, with support for third-party high-speed transfer solutions like Aspera, will improve performance by being able to prioritize Perforce file transfers and ensure remote sites are in sync with central servers at all times."

Perforce customers with large, distributed teams can see performance improvements without third-party transfer acceleration by using a federated architecture. Perforce federated architecture makes the most common operations — syncing, checking out, merging, resolving, and reverting files — local instead of remote. This setup offers users significant performance advantages over other solutions. Adding high-speed transfer technology further improves the speed and efficiency of Perforce federated architecture, offering an alternative to traditional file transfer.

Support for Aspera Enterprise and Connect Servers has been included in the 2017.2 Helix Core release providing the ability to send data at line speed regardless of distances, file size, or network conditions. Transfers that once took days or were completely untenable using traditional technologies now only take minutes or hours, all with complete, built-in security for data transfers that is trusted by thousands of customers around the world, with no restrictions on file size or the number of concurrent transfers or users.

"The mutual Perforce and Aspera customer base has been asking for this integration," said John Wastcoat, VP Business Development at Aspera. "We are very happy that with the 2017.2 release we can now provide them with the speed, reliability, and security that they need for worldwide collaboration."
