Hailbytes Git on AWS: A Secure and Scalable Way to Manage Your Code

What is Hailbytes?

Hailbytes is a cybersecurity firm that provides managed security services and cloud-based security technology to help companies protect their digital transformation.

Git Server on AWS

The HailBytes Git Server provides a secure, supported, and easy-to-manage versioning system for your code. This allows users to save code, track revision history, and combine code changes. The system has security updates and uses an open source development that is free of hidden backdoors. 

This self-hosted Git service is easy to use and powered by Gitea. In many ways, it is like GitHub, Bitbucket, and Gitlab. It provides support for Git revision control, developer wiki pages, and issue tracking. You will be able to access and maintain your code with ease because of the functionality and familiar interface.


One of the most well-known Git servers in the world is called Gitea. It is simple to set up, free, and open-source. Gitea may be a useful tool for organizing your projects! Like GitHub, teams can work on open-source and personal projects using the self-hosted Git server Gitea. Unlike other version control systems which need strong servers to operate fast and secure, Gitea can run on your home computer. It is ideal for small teams or single engineers that want to handle their own code because of this. Unlike GitHub, you can keep your data private if you want to host sensitive projects. Since Gitea is open-source, users can create and share their own custom plugins and feature extensions. Go, a programming language created with scalability and quick performance in mind, is the backbone of Gitea. This means that your Git server will function easily and effectively regardless of how many users are accessing it!
