CollabNet Further Embraces Cloud with Codesion Acquisition

CollabNet, known for its Agile application lifecycle management (ALM) platform, made a self-described "aggressive move" into cloud-based developer services recently by announcing it is acquiring Codesion, which hosts software version control services such as Subversion.

Guy Marion, CEO of CollabNet, said in a statement that the acquisition was a "natural fit" for the company because "our users were seeking version control training and best practices around Agile development."

CollabNet itself created the open-source Subversion version control system in 2000 and is still the primary sponsor of the project, reportedly used by millions of users, as well as many high-profile projects such as SourceForge, Ruby, Python and PHP. It's now under an open-source Apache license and is officially called Apache Subversion.

Codesion, formerly called CVSDude, also hosts version control services Git and CVS, along with other applications, in the software-as-a-service model.

"Codesion enables developers to securely host and procure Subversion in the cloud, integrate it with Trac, Basecamp, TeamForge and more, and deploy directly to cloud hosting providers such as Joyent and Amazon," CollabNet said in a statement.

Along with the acquisition, CollabNet announced "an on-demand multi-tenant version" of its TeamForge ALM product called CollabNet TeamForge Project. This "workgroup-centric" version of TeamForge will provide users with a simple upgrade path to CollabNet's Agile ALM platform, the company said.

CollabNet said the Codesion hosting service is available in three different editions: Team, Professional and Enterprise. The Professional edition costs $16.50 per user per month, and the first five users of that edition will get TeamForge Project at no cost, while additional TeamForge Project subscriptions will cost $40 each. According to the CollabNet Web site, the Team edition costs $6.99 per user per month and the Enterprise edition costs $24 per user per month.

Terms of the Codesion acquisition weren't announced.
