Options to Manage Source Code

Explore the various strategies to manage application source code.

Development teams may choose from a variety of strategies in deciding how to host and manage their source code.

On-prem installation

On-prem (a contraction of on-premises) installation is one of the oldest and most commonly used options. A system administrator will download and install the Git server on one of their local machines.

The key benefits of this approach are as follows:

  • The administrators have complete control of the server and can customize it how they want it. They can download and install the packages and utilities the development team requires.

  • The administrators control the access and can be assured that the repository is highly secured.

  • The server can be kept ready for any audit and compliance requirements enforced by the company.
