    re: build in cloud. Yeah, that’s what a lot of us said when we launched the system internally. I’m not even sure we have fewer admins per seat than clearcase required back in the day. I think the underlying systems are more responsive though but then this is twenty years later so we would hope so. I do love it though, it’s a huge win for my productivity on the train and so forth.

    Clearcase also included a load of data loss, being built atop crappy old NFS. I hope you don’t have that part ;)

      Just the usual tail latency etc. But no, it’s pretty great really, and it has excellent automatic time-based snapshotting (to make up for the lack of frequent git-style partial commits).
