BRISBANE, Calif., Dec 14, 2011 — CollabNet®, the global leader for enterprise cloud development and Agile ALM products and services, today announced that the Git source code management (SCM) tool is now available as a fully hosted, enterprise-grade solution directly from its Codesion cloud development platform. This cloud-enabled version of Git follows the company’s recent launch of CollabNet Connect™ that made Git available as an integrated tool within the TeamForge® Agile ALM platform. Both options make Git a viable choice for enterprise IT organizations where the highest standards in support, security, availability and back-up are a “must” requirement.
“The continued convergence and adoption of open source and commercial ALM tools within cloud development platforms requires new levels of assurance for both performance and security,” said Guy Marion, vice president of CollabNet Cloud Services. “Now development teams working on mission-critical projects have access to Git within a highly secure, reliable and enterprise-grade cloud development environment that includes other popular SCM tools, such as Subversion, and leading ALM solutions.”
Many IT organizations find that development teams use a wide range of both open source and commercial SCM and ALM tools. With Git now available on Codesion, organizations can deploy and manage Git, Subversion and other SCM tools “under one roof,” with code stored in a single, secure, enterprise-ready location. For enterprise customers managing hundreds of projects across multiple tool stacks, Codesion now offers both integrated SCM hosting along with access to a growing suite of development tools, including: Trac, BugZilla and CollabNet’s ScrumWorks® Pro and TeamForge for Agile ALM, and Codesion Publisher for software deployment.
CollabNet is the first company to provide a cloud-enabled platform to govern and secure development with the Git DVCS tool, such as for mobile application development. Enterprises can now take advantage of the speed and flexibility provided by Git without compromising corporate standards for compliance, security or management efficiency – all in the cloud.
