GitHub, the code hosting service acquired recently by Microsoft is set to launch new features for business users, which will enable them to access the public repositories on the service hassle-free. Previously, the users on the self-hosted enterprise and hosted business cloud were not able to access the millions of open-source repositories present on the service. However, this release will ensure that the users go beyond their firewalls for engaging and collaborating directly with others in the GitHub community.
Moreover, the company is also offering a unified search option for the enterprise and business users, which will enable them to tap into the internal repositories and look at open-source ones. Other features of this latest Enterprise release include the ease of ignoring the whitespace while reviewing the changes, multiple reviewers for code changes, automation of support tickets and more.
Rishabh’s cloud experts understand that cloud computing is nothing more than a new delivery model but one that provides high ROI for customers that use it. Not only does the TCO (total cost of ownership) get reduced, but it enables powerful features like multi-tenancy, continuous integration of feedback and ubiquitous access that provide actual value for the end-user.
