To help organizations manage internally built applications more effectively, developer software and services provider Atlassian is offering an enterprise-focused code management service based on the popular open source Git software.

The Stash Data Center, now commercially available, was designed to accommodate the expedited development schedules faced by many enterprise software teams, as they adopt the popular devops development methodology.

Devops stresses short development cycles, continuous integration, and close coordination with operations teams.

Stash is based on Git, code management software developed by Linus Torvalds to control the development of the Linux operation system kernel, which has been collaboratively worked on by nearly 12,000 developers since 2005.

Git has gone on to become one of the most widely used source control systems. More than 60 percent of developers surveyed by Gartner currently use Git to manage their code.

Atlassian's managed Git service has been designed specifically for enterprise workloads, according to the company. It can easily support thousands of concurrent users issuing frequent changes to a code base.

Git offers the ability for multiple programmers to work on the same project at the same time, thanks to its branch-based workflow architecture. The service offers a set of access controls that limit individual developers to the project, repository, or branch levels.

The company uses database clusters and shared file systems to minimize downtime, eliminating the setup work required to have such capabilities in-house.

Atlassian integrated two of its own tools into the service to further speed the development process: the Jira bug tracking software, and the Bamboo continuous integration software for quickly testing new versions of a program.

The company unveiled Stash Data Center in September, signing on select users as beta testers.

Amadeus, a travel industry technology company, used the service to coordinate activities for 3,000 developers. NASA's Ames Research Center uses Stash to collaborate with the Federal Aviation Administration.

Cisco, Splunk, education services provider Blackboard, and telecommunications equipment manufacturer Ciena have also been early users of the service.

Stash Data Center costs US$24,000 per year for up to 1,000 users.

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

Sizing up the NZ security spectrum - Where's the channel sweet spot?

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging. With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
