Vesta is a portable SCM system targeted at supporting development of software systems from fairly small (under 10,000 source lines) to very large (10,000,000 source lines). It is an alternative to CVS + make. It was in production use by Compaq's Alpha microprocessor group for over two and a half years. The Alpha group (over 150 active developers at two sites) used Vesta to manage builds of up to 130 MB of source data, each producing 1.5 GB of derived data. The builds done at one site in an average day produced about 10-15 GB of derived data, all managed by Vesta.
