While alternative version control systems, such as Perforce Helix Core, have put up strong competition, SVN is still popular with many developers. It is used in game development, financial services, semiconductor manufacturing, and other industries because of its low cost, open-source design, and centralized repositories.

There are several options for SVN hosting available, but which one is the best for your business?

On-Prem SVN Hosting

An on-prem setup is a popular choice for Apache Subversion users due to the level of security and control it gives its developers. However, it can also sap away valuable time and energy from developers who need to manage the local infrastructure. An on-prem setup can also be slower and less responsive for remote team members than a cloud SVN setup.

SVN Cloud Hosting

Choosing a cloud-based SVN hosting solution will open up new benefits that can increase efficiency, productivity, and savings for your team. Depending on the Subversion hosting platform and package you choose, the migration and setup may be taken care of for free.


If you do the research and choose an experienced SVN hosting platform with a comprehensive security solution, you can be confident that your code will be safe. There are options available for private servers with AES-256-bit encryption. A good SVN hosting solution will also perform regular security testing and provide methods for clients to conduct their own audits and reports for security and compliance purposes.


Adding additional storage capacity to an on-prem server can be a hassle, but with an SVN hosting service, it can be as easy as sending an email.

Many platforms will offer unlimited repositories for an unlimited number of users. But enterprise solutions can also have virtually unlimited storage capacity that is custom-fitted to each client’s specific needs.


If your local infrastructure is becoming bogged down by large file sizes and heavy storage needs, then it may be time to upgrade to a cloud-based SVN solution. You can save your developers frustration and lost time by moving to the cloud, and some enterprise options can give you even faster speeds.

Global Deployment

Remote and global team members can be better integrated into your team with access to your code through SVN cloud hosting. Geographically distributed servers can ensure that connections are high-speed, even on different continents.
