Likelihood to Recommend

Continua CI

Mostly it is very suitable for any product based company who wants to add a CI system for their products. This tool is perfectly suitable for a company which releases builds very frequently. By using this tool they can reduce a tremendous amount of manual effort. If company's budget is not high and if they can not afford the premium plan then this tool won't be suitable for them because the basic version of this tool won't provide much functionality

GitLab

Gitlab is a great opportunity to "practice what you preach" if you are a shop that advocates the use of open source tools. Whether you use [Gitlab] or your own internal deployment, this tool offers good value for money (typically free in both cases for most organizations' needs). It would be less appropriate when an organization:
  1. Doesn't want to host their own revision control, for less hands-on DevOps
  2. Needs their code to be private/proprietary, and
  3. Already has existing products and workflows for Continuous Integration and project management
In this case, a company license for GitHub.com may make more sense.

Pros

Continua CI

  • First thing is this tool is scalable which is the biggest advantage of this tool. It won't take much time in setup and making it ready. It has a very good user interface.
  • This tool has almost every source code repository support like Git, SVN, Microsoft Foundation Server etc. Moreover, it has very good support for various build tools like Visual Studio, MSBuild etc., which makes it even batter.
  • We can trigger multiple builds at a time with the Premier subscription.
  • It allows users to apply many deep levels of configurations which make the whole system even easier.

GitLab

  • Pipelines: Gitlab Pipelines is an excellent way to get started with pipelines easily and without much overhead. And with it being all encapsulated within Gitlab itself, it makes integrating your code into that pipeline even easier. Just a little bit of code and VOILA. You have at least a minimum viable pipeline.
  • VCS: Gitlab is, of course, a great version control system.
  • Usability: Gitlab has really put a significant amount of focus into usability. They've drilled down and ensured that the way companies and individuals need to use the tool, they can.
  • Groups: Gitlab makes setting permissions on projects extremely easy. Other version control systems make it more difficult to set things granular enough, but gitlab allows you to group things in a granular enough way for your projects.

Cons

Continua CI

  • Mostly I don't have much more recommendation for improvement because this tool provides almost everything which would be required in any continuous integration system. But still I would suggest improvement in the reporting system. The build report is a field where they can make improvement by adding more information if they want.

GitLab

  • Third-party integrations. Many developer tools integrate deeply with GitHub, but lack support for Gitlab. Gitlab does have webhook support so it's possible to build your own integrations, but this can be time-consuming.
  • Gitlab's main competitor (GitHub) has a massive social network of coders and hosts nearly all popular open source projects. If you are looking for this type of community, Gitlab may not be for you.
  • Customer support & reliability. In the time I've used Gitlab, it's not uncommon to experience hours-long periods of downtime without any announcement or indication from the support team when it will be available again.

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.

I will admit, being an enterprise Gitlab user may come with additional access to Gitlab support. With that said, I have found them to be very supportive and responsive when prompted with questions about the tool. The engineers I've worked with have been very keen to listen to feedback from my team and have taken it back as suggestions for improvements to the tool.

Alternatives Considered

Continua CI

In my previous company I have used Jenkins for maintaining their CI system. Even this tool is also very good. The good thing about this tool is it’s an open source project. So in terms of pricing, we can consider this tool as an alternative to continua CI. One has to compare both of the products before going to use any one because both have their own benefits and drawbacks.

GitLab

Easy to use - The interface is almost similar to one of the competitors acquired by microsoft.Security - Security is well maintained as Basic Auth plus SSH options both are present and can be utilised organisation wise to improve the authorisation part.Cost effective - Its better compared to the other competitors out there in terms of cost for various team sizes.

Return on Investment

Continua CI

  • Basically, this tool will reduce manual effort of creating, deploying and testing software products. So ultimately it will reduce manpower which would otherwise be required for such things.
  • It is time saving and improves the overall performance of the entire team and system.

GitLab

  • Developer salaries are very expensive, and this tool saves developer time, so I'd estimate at least $1000/month ROI per developer using this tool.
  • The CI interface can do wonders to improve release time and software quality. If you leverage this, there's a strong ROI here.
  • Part of our business relied on secure private source code hosting; GitLab is totally the right choice for that.
