Git at scale with Git Virtual File System | T179


chiaki , new york, NY – it is justNOThost – First, we found out our site is not up all of sudden. We don’t know how long but it stayed down for 3 days after we found out. They never let us know until we contacted them. When we contacted them they said they have a broken server and our data was on that one. Over 3 days they didn’t do anything like moving the data to the working server, they just left as it is for 3 days until the server were fixed. Web hosting company not hosting over 3 days? That is ridiculous, and what made it worse is that they never contacted to customers, no information on their website, their web site just keep saying that they are the most reliable service provider. After 3 days with our many contact to them, it was fixed finally. Right after that, we found out our emails on the domain is not working, and it is not resolved yet. We can’t receive emails at all at this point. Those sites we had problem is e-commerce site as well. They just don’t care at all. Also they screwed up our SSL before as well.


Git uses Git Virtual File System to scale to enterprise-scale repositories, like the Windows code base. This video introduces you to Git Virtual File System and how it works.

    It's just lazy loading. What I would like to know is why didn't they just split Windows repository into many smaller ones? Do 4000 people actually merge into master or what is the reason behind keeping it all tightly coupled?

    He seems to think that windoze bloat is not the problem?
