Stable solution for version control and source code management

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the source code management. It's very helpful and it's a great product."
  • "If you are uploading or cloning a large file, with more than 25 megs, it's pretty slow."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for version control and source code management.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the source code management. It's very helpful and it's a great product.

What needs improvement?

If you are uploading or cloning a large file, with more than 25 megs, it's pretty slow.

The upload/download speed is pretty slow for a single large file. It is only a problem if the repo has a high-resolution pic or video.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using GitHub for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is quite stable.

We have over 1,000 users that use this solution daily.

How are customer service and technical support?

We very seldom need support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we were using Bitbucket. We switched to GitHub because it is the number one source code management platform, and it has the cooperation of the open-source community. It provides for better collaboration. We all participate in the open-source community.

There are more users on GitHub, compared to Bitbucket.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is quite simple. It took less than an hour and could even be done in as little as 15 minutes.

What about the implementation team?

The server was set up with support from the team in the development center of the office. It's GitHub, so you don't need a special consultant for it.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to organizations that are looking for a platform to manage source code.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
