Beanstalk

For business or personal applications, where you wish your code to remain private and/or proprietary, Beanstalk could be a good fit. If you are also interested in beginning to automate with relative ease, their tools can be a great help. Code reviews can also be a key factor in the decision, as they provide a good framework for accountability.

Bitbucket Server (formerly Stash)

Bitbucket Server would be good to use if you are not extremely reliant on the availability of your code at any given moment. If you have other systems relying on the up status of Bitbucket Server that can cause problems if unable to reach it -- you might consider going with a different product

Pros

Beanstalk

  • Automation
  • Code Review
  • Support

Bitbucket Server (formerly Stash)

  • Projects & Permissions - Stash keeps you and your developers productive by providing a way to structure your repositories and manage permissions via a simple, yet powerful user interface. Stash is very easy to use, manage & administer.
  • Essentially Stash gives two versions of interfaces to work with.
  • Stash Repository hosted on a server.
  • Atlassian SourceTree.
  • Atlassian Sourcetree is a tool to work with a code in stash. The two 'web' and 'desktop' versions make working with code user friendly, intuitive and comprehensive.
  • Connectivity to JIRA - Stash keeps track of all issues associated with commits. Users can use Stash to quickly see all issues associated with a commit, or use the Source tab on JIRA issues for an aggregate view of all the code changes that are related to a specific JIRA issue. With this information available, your development team saves time when tracking particular bug fixes or improvements.

Cons

Beanstalk

  • Interface is not always intuitive, some areas are easier than others to navigate.
  • Price plans are a little odd. However, they do seem to be flexible if a plan does not quite fit your needs.

Bitbucket Server (formerly Stash)

  • It's difficult to create flexible pull requests that might need to be approved by 4 people and others by only 1 person. All pull requests require the same number of approvers
  • Maneuvering through the git-components of Stash to look at particular branches, diff branches, or view tags can be difficult, tedious, or impossible. Direct support for some more advanced git actions would be appreciated.
  • There is no readme concept (like in github) for a repository.

Because we're so locked in, it's likely we'll be using Bitbucket Server for a while, unfortunately.

The usability of its interface is pretty straight forward when it comes to creating projects and repositories, but when you have to dive into finer grained portions of the UI things can get tricky. If you are used to using tools like GitHub or Gitlab -- Bitbucket is just different enough to be a bother.

Never really needed any support as the application is very easy to set up and maintain. Any questions we had were well documented in their online documentation, and community forum.

Alternatives Considered

Beanstalk

If you are creating open source applications, there is almost no reason not to use GitHub. If you do need private repositories (for proprietary or private, business or personal use), Bitbucket could be an excellent solution. Beanstalk's main advantages lie in the support (which is excellent), deployment tools, and code review features.

Bitbucket Server (formerly Stash)

In terms of a DVCS solution, both Bitbucket Server and GitHub offer a very similar set of features. The real strength of Bitbucket comes from its integrations with other Atlassian applications that we are also using. Being able to reference and tie together code commits, development issues, and build tasks is invaluable for us. You can also integrate these tools with GitHub, but it will always feel like a 2nd wheel.Bitbucket Server, as the name suggests, is a server variant of the solution, so you can deploy it in your own infrastructure instead of in the cloud. The GitHub equivalent, GitHub Enterprise, was too cost-prohibitive.

Return on Investment

Beanstalk

  • Increased automation => better accuracy and efficiency of maintenance/launches
  • Better insights into ongoing work and past modifications to code => lower chance of error and more efficient troubleshooting
Chris Putnam | TrustRadius Reviewer

Bitbucket Server (formerly Stash)

  • In positive form, having Stash over not having it at all has provided us with a superior repository system over trying to push to some local server instance and manage branches/merging from our local machines.
  • There are no real negatives to using Stash, its only problem is that there are competitors out there that can offer additional features.
