Unity is the creator of the world’s most widely-used real-time 3D development platform, giving developers around the world the tools to create rich, interactive 2D, 3D, VR and AR experiences.
On the “Made with Unity” team, speed is the name of the game. Fast file transfers coupled with tools that help the team become more efficient are the main reasons “Made with Unity” chose and found success with Assembla. With Unity’s multi-zone set up, the team is able to scale faster and ensure speed.
In addition, Assembla’s use of Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a preferred partner, laid solid infrastructure to ensure the speed the Unity team needed. Assembla’s ability to deploy this team’s solution quickly was a huge driver for the team’s choice.
“Made with Unity” relies heavily on Perforce, however, managing this in-house was becoming a burden. In 2016, Assembla was selected as a strategic cloud provider of Perforce’s Helix Core solution.
Assembla is the only provider on the market trusted by Perforce to deliver seamless, on-demand Helix Core to customers. This partnership, in addition to Assembla’s ability to manage multiple repository types, is why and how “Made with Unity” found success.
AWS has the broadest and deepest portfolio of services that allows Assembla to stay focused on driving innovation in products rather than the basic infrastructure needed to get or keep a service running. AWS’ unmatched scalability has been instrumental in keeping pace with customer demand.
“We see Assembla as a trusted partner and an extension of the team”
Made with Unity works with large, binary files. By working with Assembla, their team increases file transfer up to 3 X as compared to an on-premise solution. Perforce Helix Core is a best in class tool used globally that accelerates development.
In their words, “[Perforce] scales for large teams, handles 1000s of daily transactions, and delivers files quickly to remote users.” According to Mike Wuetherick, a Producer for Unity and founder of the Made with Unity team, “Being able to get a global Perforce solution on-demand and fully managed with Assembla helped the Unity team do more and go faster by freeing up internal resources. Made with Unity’s previous solution was wasting time and money for the business. We see Assembla as a trusted partner and an extension of the team.”
In addition to Perforce, Made with Unity has Git projects spread across multiple cloud providers. There are no other cloud solutions on the market that allow teams to house Git and Perforce solutions together, in the cloud, in a fully managed way. Assembla’s ability to provide a central location to house Unity’s different client projects streamlines internal business operations.
