Dynamsoft Corporation today announced Continental Airlines, the world's
fifth largest airline, has implemented SourceAnywhere for VSS. After
experiencing latency issues which stemmed from a decision to move the
company's servers over the WAN from Texas to North Carolina, Continental
Airlines selected the remote access add-on tool for Microsoft Visual
SourceSafe as part of a version control system. The development team
immediately benefited from the tool's speed.

    SourceSafe was designed for small teams in a LAN environment. Since it was
not optimized for remote access, SourceSafe users experience slow
performance over HTTP. Because of these performance problems, teams waste
precious development time waiting for code to download.

    During the development process, the development team loads all the files
local to each machine. One consistent problem each team member experienced
using VSS was that this process was taking almost five hours to download
all 90,000 files from the data center to Houston. "The
development team has drastically reduced wait times when downloading code
by implementing SourceAnywhere for VSS," explained Trent Taylor,
Technology Analyst, Continental Airlines. "I have estimated that
SourceAnywhere for VSS version 5.1 was about 7 times faster than
SourceSafe. And now version 5.2 seems about 14 times

SourceAnywhere for VSS, which is recommended by Microsoft as a
remote access and cross platform solution to VSS, was created with four
core objectives in mind. These include performance, to deliver the
fastest remote access possible over TCP/IP; security, to apply a
fail-safe approach to moving code assets across the Web; multi-platform
support, to provide broad platform support and integrate with the
industry's most popular OS and IDEs; and SourceSafe GUI similarity, to
ensure easy integration for developers.
