Amazon AWS

We have a small team with limited resources and it worked well for us. Hence I can conclude that AWS Code Artifact are well suited for organizations which have limited resources in terms of hardware and access to administrators for setting up artifact repository in-house. AWS Code Artifact is also suited particularly well for organization(s) which are already using AWS Services/Infrastructure (eg. EC2) . It works quite well with existing AWS services and completes the gap which existed in AWS offering for quite some time. Organizations can move their entire DevOps toolchain and infrastructure to Amazon. It is less appropriate for organization(s) which rely on artifacts like Debian, C/C++, Go etc as AWS does not support those fully.

GitLab

Any small to medium custom application development Gitlab works great for. If you are a large code development shop, there are other products on the market that can do everything in GitLab better, more secure, and make administration easier. For the price, GitLab is great for those with budget-conscious needs in mind.

GitLab

  • The way they have managed to provide the version management aspect using git with project setup and users is mesmerising cause there's no product out there that gives this freely.
  • Continuous updates and hearing what users need is what the product engineers at GitLab are doing best. They come back to you with exactly what you need every while.
  • Quality features, Latest tech integrations have made the end-to-end solution very flexible and agile.
  • CI/CD tools implementation with pipelines and deployment strategies is just making the job for Infra teams smoother.

Cons

Amazon AWS

  • CodeArtifact does not support packages like debian. It will be nice to see them support that.
  • Does not provide security scanning of the packages
  • Lacks support for third party CI/CD toolchain like Jenkins

GitLab

  • Sometimes, it is really challenging to manage conflicts when a lot of merge requests are coming for multiple separate branches to the main branch.
  • One area of improvement for the software, is sometimes, the interface can work slower
  • A few times, we have faced difficulties testing CI builds locally.

    Gitlab is the best in its segment. They have a free version, they have open-source software, they provide a good service with their SaaS product, they are a fully-remote company since the beginning (which means they are fully distributed and have forward-thinking IMO). I would certainly recommend them to everyone.

    GitLab

    The web console management is superior and I would have given Gitlab a 10, but sometimes it is hard to find documentation about a configuration setting in the gitlab.rb configuration file. As we move everything to code that means moving our CVS tools to code as well - and Gitlab to code. The usability of Gitlab from the end user's perspective is superior and the usability from the operations team is very good and getting better but there could be a little improvement in the gitlab.rb config file layout and documentation.

    At this point, I do not have much experience with Gitlab support as I have never had to engage them. They have documentation that is helpful, not quite as extensive as other documentation, but helpful nonetheless. They also seem to be relatively responsive on social media platforms (twitter) and really thrived when GitHub was acquired by Microsoft

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon AWS

    AWS CodeArtifact is an excellent choice for organization(s) which are looking to move their infrastructure and devops toolchain to Amazon. It is very useful for teams/organizations on limited budget or do not want to take on infrastructure and maintenance costs associated with the artifact repository. Other software solutions require resources for setting up and need ongoing maintenance.

    These tools do have quite a bit of crossover. However, with GitLab, we can set up our CI/CD pipeline more seamlessly as there are numerous workflows built straight into the tool. The last time I used GitLab this was not something it provided. Granted, it will work with outside integrations but that is something additional that will need to be set up.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon AWS

    • Overall CodeArtifact has positive ROI on the our team. We had limited budget for procurement of server/administrators. With CodeArtifact we were able to get some savings.
    • We were able to deliver faster hence customers were quite happy. That led to customer satisfaction
    • We didnt have to invest on maintaining network infrastructure/uptime and security. That saved us quite a bit of hassle and funds.

    GitLab

    • We are moving towards Gitlab only as our SCM & CI tool. So it would be an alternative to Jenkins. Saving our licensing cost there.
    • We have also stopped using Confluence & using Gitlab for our documentation purposes. Reducing cost there as well.
