The Reason Why

The Helmholtz Cloud offers cloud services to all members of the Helmholtz Association and partners. This also includes a GitLab service that is made available under the domain by colleagues of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) and the Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung (UFZ). Meanwhile, the vast majority of users does not come from the HZDR any longer. We decided to reflect this fact in the choice of the primary domain name. Therefore, a small contest to find a new domain name for this Helmholtz-wide GitLab service was initiated. At the end of this contest, most of the participants voted for Helmholtz Codebase and, respectively, as the successors of the previous service and domain name.
