GitHub Launches Its Enterprise Edition

GitHub, the web-based hosting service for software projects that use the Git source control management (SCM) system is now available for the enterprise. In an announcement made on it’s blog today, GitHub touted all the features of GitHub: commit histories, code browsing, compare views, pull requests, issues, wikis, gists, organizations and team management, powerful APIs, and a beautiful web interface that are now part of this new GitHub Enterprise that you can run locally, on your own server.
How is this different from managing your projects as private repositories on GitHub? The biggest difference is that GitHub Enterprise packaged for running on your organization’s local network. All the source code repository data is stored on machines that you control, and access is integrated with your organization’s authentication system such as LDAP or CAS. The ideal use case for GitHub Enterprise is when you need complete control over your repository and project information.How much does it Cost? GitHub Enterprise is priced at $5000 per 20 Users per Year. That works out to roughly $250 per enterprise user per year, which is really a good deal considering all the time you would otherwise waste as a team every year maintaining, troubleshooting and upgrading your in-house SCM. There is even a free 45-day trial for GitHub enterprise. Sign up here.
