Google starts quietly with new source code hosting service




Google reveals this year started with a source code hosting service that can be linked with GitHub or BitBucket. When Google service has just put online audience is unclear. It is a free beta program that allows users to store up to 500MB of data.

The service called Cloud Source Repositories PST Wednesday was noted by VentureBeat. Begin with a Git-like service for Google seems a logical step as part of its Google Cloud program, especially after the company made ​​a start with the gradual closing of the Google Code website earlier this year.

VentureBeat thinks that it will not be easy for Google to steal market share from other source code hosting services like GitHub and BitBucket. Google therefore seems to opt for a gradual approach; The service can now serve as a ‘remote’ for Git repositories are hosted elsewhere on the Internet or locally. The attached at GitHub repositories can be automatically synchronized in both directions. Later, also other source code hosting services, such as BitBucket, are connected.

In addition, the service offers a source code editor and collaborates with other Google Cloud server, namely Cloud Debugger. Thus Java applications can run on Google Compute Engine and App Engine without having to stop them or slow them down.

At this time, the service offers a ‘free beta’ program, making it seem plausible that eventually has to be paid for the service or certain parts of the service.
