Integrated Subversion Hosting

Start my free trial

Subversion is a tried and tested version control system. It handles whatever you throw at it, from small projects, to massive ones with large binaries. While Git is currently more popular, Subversion may suit your project better if you need a single centralised store for the project. TaraVault will give you safe, secure, and globally accessible Subversion repositories, straight from your Spira ALM suite.

When To Use Subversion

We recommend using Subversion when your project has the following characteristics:

  • The project contains lots of large files that need to be versioned (e.g. a website with lots of video content)
  • You don't need to create and merge many different branches, and most of the team are working in the same branch
  • The team is relatively inexperienced with version control systems, and needs a basic solution that is easy to understand
  • The team is working in one location, or multiple locations that have high connectivity to the Internet
