Big? GitHub Enterprise 2.5 thinks massive
Keeping up its push to be an enterprise presence, GitHub has announced the latest version of the for-pay, enterprise edition of its code-hosting platform.
The company says GitHub Enterprise 2.5’s focus is «companies operating at massive scale” — enterprises with more than 10,000 developers and exponential year-over-year growth. The new toolset for GitHub Enterprise 2.5 helps large teams add new users, collaborate safely on large projects, and deal with GitHub-related performance issues that can crop up around such large projects.
Taming the thundering herds
The most prominent new feature for scale, clustering, allows GitHub Enterprise services to be deployed across multiple nodes. The various services that make up a GitHub deployment — MySQL, Redis, ElasticSearch, Git, and so on — can be scaled to meet enterprise-level demand. However, the documentation notes that «setting up a redundant and scalable cluster can be complex and requires careful planning,” so this feature has to be set up with a GitHub Enterprise account representative.
