CollabNet has announced a new version of CloudForge that offers the broadest development tool support, storage availability and unrestrictive usage of any cloud development platform, including GitHub and Atlassian BitBucket. The CloudForge Free Plan provides unlimited private projects, and supports unlimited users. It also provides access to TeamForge, the enterprise-class Agile development platform used to synchronize small teams or thousands of developers and projects. An integration with Box powers content collaboration across any organization to further accelerate the development process. With CloudForge, restrictions are removed so developers and teams can get started instantly, realize value immediately and securely scale based on their growing and maturing needs.

“Following Agile and DevOps adoption, cloud-based software development is moving from grassroots, small-scale projects to larger initiatives and adoption in the enterprise,” said Nick Bell, Senior Director of CollabNet Cloud Services. “With the new CloudForge we remove the restrictive approach other cloud platforms impose on developers and, with the addition of TeamForge, help connect small teams and larger organizations in a very collaborative and enterprise-friendly approach.”

CloudForge disrupts the cloud development landscape by:
* Pricing for value: from the industry’s most complete Free program to the Enterprise platform, CloudForge provides instant value, accelerates adoption and offers a practical path to grow.   
* Going unlimited: no restrictions on the number of projects and users.
* Adding tooling: TeamForge for Agile and DevOps, including Agile planning, bug and issue tracking, and collaboration wikis.
* Hybrid SCM: the flexibility to use the source code management tool of choice, with both Git and Subversion being available.
* Managing files and documents: TeamForge and Box bring document management and content collaboration to cloud development.
* Enabling scale: from small teams to thousands of users, CloudForge provides the visibility, centralized management and compliance to grow across the enterprise.
* Removing risk: CollabNet pioneered the adoption of open source tools within large enterprises through its Subversion roots – it has a level of cloud based collaborative development experience as well as infrastructure knowledge that is unmatched in the industry.

With the launch of the market-disruptive CloudForge pricing and feature-set, coupled with TeamForge instances for all users, CollabNet continues to build on its leadership position helping enterprise organizations gain value from cloud and open source technologies. Its five-step blueprint, called Enterprise Cloud Development, guides organizations as they adopt hybrid cloud strategies into the software delivery lifecycle. With CloudForge, developers build websites, mobile/cloud/web applications, and rapidly prototype and deploy business software. For the enterprise, it offers a fast and practical path to grow and scale organization-wide, through a flexible role-based access security framework that makes it incredibly easy for developers to use and administrators comfortable to scale to thousands of users.

“Box and CollabNet share a common goal to bring enterprise collaboration to the cloud and provide a seamless experience to users and development teams,” said Chris Yeh, Senior Vice President, Platform for Box. “Cloud development practices are moving beyond small teams to more mission-critical areas of the enterprise and CloudForge offers a strong way to get started and scale in a practical fashion.”

“Lowering the barriers of adoption for cloud services and adding value at the base level is a positive move by CollabNet with its new CloudForge platform,” said Ben Kepes, Principal, Diversity Limited. “We see continued adoption of cloud-based services within the software development industry and expect strong growth and innovation during the coming years.”
