Borland StarTeam is a client/server system using TCP/IP. It includes enhanced defect tracking (traceability between files/Change Requests/Requirements) and tight integration with tools for entire lifecycle. StarTeam has customizable workflow processes, optional file locking, promotions, and file/folder sharing. Its network efficiency is good in that it compresses and sends only the file differences. The downside is that StarTeam is a file-base system and it does not have atomic check-ins. Also, it only has 2-way merge file and user feedback is that merging is tedious. One caution: file deletions aren't propagated to your workspace.
