Atlassian Creates Massive (Scale) Git

Atlassian has announced Stash Data Center, an enterprise Git solution that supports massive scale with fine-grained permissions for collaborative workflows.

Featured here are functions including clustering for load-balancing and reliability, branching and forking for large-scale coordinated development efforts and the availability of source code for customizations make the new Stash Data Center a no-brainer for bringing Git into the Enterprise."

Stash Data Center introduces active-active clustering to its line-up of collaborative features. Clustering is baked into the set-up process so teams can quickly get up-and-running on Git.

The technology can handle demand from thousands of users and tens of thousands of Continuous Integration server requests — and additional nodes can be added in real time.

According to Atlassian, "With branch-based workflows and pull requests, Stash Data Center lets multiple developers collaborate on the same code without impacting the main codebase. As part of Git Essentials, Stash integrates with both JIRA and Bamboo to create the best workflow for your entire software team.

For fine-grained permissions: Stash Data Center includes flexible global permissions that can be fine tuned at the project, repository, or even branch levels — and for extensibility: Users can customize Stash Data Center via REST endpoints and Git hooks or take advantage of Stash add-ons available on the Atlassian Marketplace.

"We've seen thousands of organizations adopt Stash because it gives their software teams a more flexible and secure way to work with Git than the alternatives developers are using for open source today", said Eric Wittman, Atlassian Developer Tools general manager. "Now with Stash Data Center, enterprises not only get the flexible workflows and security they need, but also the ability to easily scale capacity as their teams grow."
