A Better Solution, Inc. Introduces "ClearReplica 9.0"
Atlanta, GA, July 29, 2010 --(PR.com)-- ClearReplica 9.0 complements IBM/Rational ClearCase (V3.2
and higher). ClearReplica provides geographically disjoint development as a less expensive alternative to
ClearCase Multisite. ClearReplica provides many of the replication features of ClearCase Multisite as
well as additional features. With ClearReplica you can replicate whole VOBs, "portions" of VOBs, a
single or select files, replicate a single or select branches, replicate multiple VOBs in to single VOBs,
replicate multiple VOBs into single VOBs, single VOBs to multiple VOBs and replicate VOBs to other
VOBs within the same ClearCase region. These options allow more flexibility to create on-line backup
VOBs and staging or distribution VOBs.
“A Better Solution has again raised the bar by providing additional features over Multisite and done so
with less end-user cost. The new Peer-to-Peer encryption feature was an often requested feature by
government and military clients. Per-branching replication is a sure win for the customer and addresses
many security concerns. The enhanced 'Deployment' features add something that has long been missing in
ClearCase” -- ClearVision
ClearReplica's flexibility transcends as an alternative to Multisite in a number of ways, some are outlined
* ClearReplica is much more cost effective - Multisite is licensed per user of a replicated VOB so the cost
increases when user and VOB usage grows, replicating a single VOB with Multisite that has 100 users in
"Atlanta" and 30 users in "India" requires 130 licenses of Multisite, to start. ClearReplica is licensed per
"location" so two licenses of ClearReplica and ClearTrigger are needed (one of each at each site).
Doubling the number of users of Multisite replicated VOBs doubles the cost of "replication," while
doubling the number of users of ClearReplica replicated VOBs adds no additional cost.
* Extended Transport Mechanisms Added - Several sftp transport Mechanisms were added to t
