Buddy Goes Enterprise
Ever since Buddy was conceived we wanted to deliver a service that could be installed on-premises: there are many companies who cannot use a cloud solution and would rather keep stuff in-house, usually because of regulations regarding code storage.
That's how Buddy GO was born, a fully-functional, Docker based version of Buddy with exactly the same (and a few extra) features as the cloud version and a dedicated support for GitHub Enterprise and GitLab self-hosted. If you're a Buddy GO user, here's a couple of things you might want to know.
We're currently working on Sandboxes that will allow you to run apps without the need of setting up a server. Since we announced the Beta two weeks ago, we have received numerous requests about its availability on Buddy standalone.
We do confirm that Sandboxes will be available on self-hosted, just like every other feature of the cloud version.
As cool as Buddy GO might sound, we needed a more universal name that will be immediately ring a bell for new users about the nature of the tool. We've decided to go for Enterprise, an industry standard when it comes to naming on-premises software installations. The change is purely cosmetical and doesn't require any action from your side.
