Welcome to the User Guide for SVN MultiSite Plus, WANdisco's next generation enterprise SVN solution. Here you'll find all the information you'll need for planning, installing, and managing a deployment.
1. What is SVN MultiSite Plus?
SVN MultiSite Plus is the core of WANdisco's enterprise SVN product line:
- SVN replication, mirroring and clustering for enterprise performance and 24-by-7 availability.
- SVN MultiSite Plus means that a central SVN server is no longer a single point of failure, or performance bottleneck and the effects of WAN latency are greatly reduced.
- By combining WANdisco's patented replication technology and intelligent load balancing software, SVN can be deployed in an active-active WAN cluster that delivers optimum performance, scalability and availability, with built-in continuous hot backup.

2. Using this guide
This documentation is intended for use by system administrators who have been given the task of evaluating, deploying, and managing their organization's version control systems. SVN MultiSite Plus is a distributed computer system. It's worth thinking of a SVN MultiSite Plus deployment as a single application running across a number of far-flung nodes, rather than instances of the same application. It's likely therefore than the job of managing SVN MultiSite Plus will be shared across a number of locations, especially in organizations where software development occurs at multiple locations in different time zones.
3. Documentation for 3rd party components
SVN MultiSite Plus may be integrated with open source software components that require user-level documentation. In these cases we provide links to the open source project's documentation.
