CollabNet has acquired Codesion, a company that provides Subversion hosting platform.Codesion’s technology delivers Subversion, Git, and other applications as a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, with the aim of helping developers to code, connect, and deploy in the Cloud.
CollabNet's Codesion hosting services are available in Team, Professional, and Enterprise editions. Codesion enables developers to securely host and procure Subversion in the Cloud, integrate it with Trac, Basecamp, TeamForge, and more, and deploy directly to Cloud hosting providers such as Joyent and Amazon. As projects grow, they can add users on demand or instantly upgrade to ScrumWorks Pro and TeamForge, all in the same secure hosted environment. CollabNet will also continue to offer these products on-premise.
CollabNet also announced the immediate availability of CollabNet TeamForge Project, an on-demand multi-tenant version of CollabNet TeamForge. TeamForge Project is available at no extra charge to the first five users of Codesion Professional Edition, which costs $16.50/user/month. Additional TeamForge subscriptions cost $40/user/month. TeamForge and ScrumWorks Pro are also immediately available options in the Codesion Enterprise Edition hosting plan.
"Development and Test Cloud services are disrupting historical software development practices," says CollabNet's Bill Portelli. "Our acquisition of Codesion builds on a ten-year history of offering developer services in the Cloud and extends our leadership in this critical area. We now offer instant-on hosting for Subversion, with an open architecture and partner ecosystem that enables workgroups to get started quickly with basic code hosting, with a seamless path to scalable Agile software development for the enterprise."
