ClearCase, developed by Rational Software, is a premier Software Configuration Management tool that allows users to store any information under ver- sion control in a centralized repository. This cen- tralized repository is also called a VOB (Versioned Object Base). MultiSite feature of ClearCase allows users from different sites to share the information in a VOB. In order to do that, the VOB needs to be replicated and a replica of the VOB will be shipped to each site. The VOB replicas at all sites need to be synchronized.
