The 2018.1 Release of Helix TeamHub Enhances DevOps and Git at Scale

Developer Collaboration
Version Control

Enterprise projects continue to grow in size and scope, with more developers contributing from multiple locations. The global nature of enterprise development, coupled with the proliferation of repositories, underscores the need to manage multiple repos and repo types under a unified platform. Helix TeamHub is a great way to solve these challenges. Let’s take a look at some of the latest enhancements. For a more detailed overview of the changes, please review the release notes

Complete Git Control for High-Performance CI/CD

With the 2018.1 release, Git repos can now be natively stored within the Helix server, which allows you to perform all Git operations from TeamHub’s interface – no mirroring required. This enhanced functionality accelerates DevOps and enables up to 80 percent faster builds. In addition to accelerating the build process, the 2018.1 release allows teams to:

  • Create, manage permissions for, and browse Git repositories and their histories
  • Conduct Git code reviews and engage in flexible workflows
  • Manage hooks for Git repositories

Collaborate Globally, Connect Locally

With most Git environments, developers are copying and cloning repos from basic servers, or even from one workstation to another. Perforce federated architecture expedites these activities for remote teams. The unique server technology significantly reduces workflow latency across the development pipeline by allowing remote teams to access and manage files at LAN speed. Thanks to the 2018.1 release, Helix TeamHub users can now take advantage of this unique technology for their Git-based projects.

Support for Docker Container Registries

Helix TeamHub now adds a Docker Container Registry to its list of multiple repository support. TeamHub’s Docker Container Registry is a managed Docker registry service based on the open-source Docker Registry 2.0. You can create and maintain container registries to store and manage your private Docker container images. The Docker registries within Helix TeamHub can also be seamlessly connected to the DevOps pipeline using tools such as Jenkins. And when it comes time for deployment, the containers can be pushed into production using your favorite ARA (Application Release Automation) solution.
