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

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

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

  • 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

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

  • 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.

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

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

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

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.
Jayesh Vaghasiya | 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.
