Security & backups

The source code on your SVN server is critical to your business. You cannot let unauthorized people to access it nor can you afford to lose it due to lack of working backups. Hence, Deveo has been developed to meet even the highest level security needs.

Communication between Deveo and its services is always encrypted. A minimum requirement is that HTTP(S) and SSH ports are open for Deveo but you can block anything else with the firewall rules. Deveo installation packages include tools to take daily backups for all of the assets - attachments, avatars, logs, configuration files -, MongoDB dumps, and repositories. Backups can be enabled with a simple configuration. Make sure that your code is safe and sound by installing Deveo behind your firewall.

In Combo deployment, the entire Deveo technology stack is bundled into a single operating system package. It is easy to deploy to basically anywhere from virtual machines to bare metal servers.

Scales to meet your changing needs

As your development organisation grows, you don’t want your SVN server to fall behind. When we talk about 1000+ developers, the load to your server is huge. Deveo supports clustering, which means that you can drive this load to multiple nodes and still have a single instance that all the users can access.

Clustering ensures that your infrastructure will withstand even the highest load. With Deveo, you can be sure that your server always meets your needs during your journey from a startup working in a garage to a multinational enterprise with thousands of developers.


LDAP/AD integration with SAML 2.0 Single Sign-on (SSO)

Use your corporate LDAP server or Active Directory (AD) to authenticate users in Deveo. By configuring Deveo to your LDAP, your employees can use Deveo with the same credentials that they have in the user directory. This is an excellent way of streamlining the user management.

Deveo also offers a single sign-on option through SAML 2.0 authentication. SAML 2.0 single sign-on allows you to utilize external identity providers to authenticate users, setup 2-factor authentication, and enable login without passwords. When it comes to authentication, Deveo is the most efficient SVN hosting platform you can install behind your firewall.

Therefore, we always provide also older Deveo packages for download so that you can choose the most suitable time for the update. We inform our on-premises users on the new releases, provide the complete changelog on each release, and inform you if there are some extra tasks for completing the version upgrade.


Efficient team management

Deveo’s efficient integration with the corporate LDAP or Active Directory allows you to streamline your access management processes remarkably. By integrating all the needed software development tools with Deveo SVN server you can manage the access rights to these tools in the Deveo UI as well.

With the intuitive UI and Deveo groups, you can delegate the management of access rights from centralised IT to the team leaders and project managers. In other words, lighten the IT department’s workload, improve agility, and cut the turnaround times.

Are there other version control systems in use in your organisation? Especially in larger organisations with multiple different teams, many different version control systems might be used simultaneously. Getting the whole organisation to work on top of a single platform yields cost savings due to better transparency and improved teamwork. But achieving this is nearly impossible if you have different version control systems in use.

In addition to Subversion, Deveo supports also Git and Mercurial. As a result, your whole organisation can operate on the same platform regardless of the version control system. Additionally, if you plan on migrating from one system to the other, it is easier to do if you can host both types of repositories on the same platform.
