Greetings folks, I’d like to take a moment to share with you something that I found a while back and have been using since I found it. What I found was a service, a source code hosting service fully integrated with Subversion. Now, I had already been using Subversion, I had it setup and running on my own servers in my lab. I had even looked at the idea of commercial Internet based Subversion hosting since it would put my source code archive off-site and accessible from outside my lab, but the providers and plans I found were either expensive, feature light, or just didn’t seam to be a quality service provider. Usually more than one of those things. Besides, I am very picky about where I put my source code. Call me paranoid, but I don’t toss code around anywhere, I have to be comfortable that it’s in a safe and secure place.
So, now enter Code Spaces, the best hosted Subversion I have ever seen, even over hosting it myself. The service is superb and the features included go way beyond simple Subversion hosting. In the end, between the ease of use and the extra goodies that they include with the service, not to mention the reasonable price, I believe in the long run I am saving money over hassling with doing it myself. Not to mention my code is now safely archived off site, which is great for disaster recovery.
Now, what all do they provide other than great Subversion hosting? Take a look:
- SSL Encryption
- Real Time Backups
- Project Management Tools
- Bug Tacking Tools
- Project Milestones and Task Setup
- A 45 Day FREE Trial
- A Money Back Guarantee
There’s more to it than that, but you really have to go check out their site to get a handle on all that they offer. Frankly, if this type of service is something that you want or need, I’d give them a shot for the 45 day free trial. That’s what I did and I was blown away by how good their service is. Check them out at http://www.codespaces.com today! By the way, if anyone is interested, this is not a paid endorsement. I don’t get any kickbacks or consignments if you sign up and they didn’t pay me or give me a credit/discount for this post, I just like the service that much that I wanted to share it with all my visitors. Enjoy!
