Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

At one instance, there was a fire in our data center and the backup power had some issues because of which the whole DC went down. I believe with AKS and the replication it's easier to handle such a situation. Also, the scenario would have been pretty transparent to the end-users.

In our organisation we have a lot of applications that require a reliable source to manage source code and GitLab helps us to achieve this very well. We have functionality like after every merge request merger we have to deploy code to our server which is running on Kubernetes pods and GitLab is very helpful in this as it has a nice and easy implementation for integrating CI/CD for the deployment of code to servers and then we can our manual jobs to fetching data. Gitlab provides us a job status with visual logs and suggestions to make it better.

Pros

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

  • Highly repeatable process
  • Minimizes the amount of software to install
  • Easily scale resources to meet demand
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

GitLab

  • Safeguards implemented are customizable and allow our organization to set our level of verification before merging.
  • One of the smoothest and most well-organized version control software products on the market.
  • Super widespread use so our use of GitLab is understandable and usable by the customer with little "translation" as to what we are doing and what they are doing.

Cons

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

  • Need to update cluster manually
  • Policies cannot be updated for existing components
  • if any change in policy every has to create cluster
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

GitLab

  • GitLab could improve some of the confusion around how permissions work (sometimes unclear why one user can do an action, but not another)
  • GitLab should provide a way to rerun a merge pipeline, without rerunning the original Merge Request pipeline
  • When jobs fail, it would be awesome if every user could see the information on the runner and the versions of the software it is running on (to better debug the issue)

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.

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.

Microsoft support was really good, whenever we raise any ticket they come back to us within a couple of hours.

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

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

The ability to create new instances (i.e. elastic provisioning) is probably the fastest with Azure Kubernetes Service compared to the alternatives that I have looked at. From a pricing perspective, Microsoft always seems to find a way to be more competitive in this area, and literally every other field they play in.

Gitlab made our product life cycle efficient. It has a better user interface and user experience. GitLab doesn't clutter with many features upfront and provides a lot of free services, which is missing in any other product. For small teams, it's the best piece of software. I always recommend giving it a try.

Return on Investment

Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS)

  • Positive impact in moving applications to cloud from the in-hose data center to save cost
  • Sometimes got affected with some bugs on the AKS infrastructure but hasn't caused a big kios as our production footprint in AKS is not yet high
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
