Overall Satisfaction with Bitbucket

Bitbucket is currently our primary version control solution. It is being used as a primary system for all code that requires versioning.
  • For what it is, Bitbucket works very well.
  • Ease of use - Navigating the UI is pretty seamless and straightforward.
  • Plugins - Bitbucket has a wide array of plugins available that allow pretty easy integrations with other tools and systems.
  • Reliability - In my experience, bitbucket is not the most reliable solution available.
  • Restoring - Plugins seem to be all or nothing when restoring. This makes knowing which things are enabled not the greatest experience when an event happens and you must restore. Several days of “well, we noticed this feature was missing” is pretty painful in the way of end-user experience.
  • Permissions - In many ways, setting specific permissions for projects and repositories are not as intuitive as other solutions available.
From a cost standpoint, Bitbucket is the winner if you fall outside of the ability to use the GitHub and Gitlab free tiers. Both of those solutions have their own merits, but from a cost saving perspective Bitbucket is more than likely going to be the most effective option.
I do not have specific experience with the support for Bitbucket.

Bitbucket is your run of the mill version control system. If you are looking for a solution that also has powerful pipelining capabilities, this probably isn’t for you. If you are looking for a basic system you can use to implement version control and a place to store your code, Bitbucket is a pretty good solution. The Bitbucket server UI is very different than the Bitbucket cloud UI so your mileage may vary on usability, but either option is pretty easy to implement and use.
