Beanstalk vs GitLab: What are the differences?
Beanstalk: Private code hosting for teams. A single process to commit code, review with the team, and deploy the final result to your customers; GitLab: Open source self-hosted Git management software. GitLab offers git repository management, code reviews, issue tracking, activity feeds and wikis. Enterprises install GitLab on-premise and connect it with LDAP and Active Directory servers for secure authentication and authorization. A single GitLab server can handle more than 25,000 users but it is also possible to create a high availability setup with multiple active servers.
Beanstalk and GitLab can be primarily classified as "Code Collaboration & Version Control" tools.
Some of the features offered by Beanstalk are:
- Setup and manage repositories- Import or create Subversion and Git repositories that are instantly available to your team.
- Invite team members, partners & clients- Restrict access to certain repos and provide read-only or full read/write permissions.
- Browse files and changes- Every version of every file you’ve committed to Beanstalk is just a click away. See a timeline of who made changes and view the differences between revisions. Syntax highlighting for over 70 languages.
On the other hand, GitLab provides the following key features:
- Manage git repositories with fine grained access controls that keep your code secure
- Perform code reviews and enhance collaboration with merge requests
- Each project can also have an issue tracker and a wiki

You cannot get easier setup and deployment with GitLab. The documentation is huge and many common use cases are covered. It has a Community Edition (CE, free, 100% open source) and an Enterprise Edittion (EE, see pricing). The CE is more than good enough. Although in the entreprise world, the EE is much better suited if, for instance, LDAP is needed. There is a Web UI that allows people to version their work without too much hassle. If you are a developer and have worked with git before this is really easy.
Als einer der größten Konkurrenten zu GitHub und BitBucket, stellt GitLab eine verlässliche Alternative dar. Als private GitLab Instanz oder als Service bietet GitLab alle Features die wir benötigen und das völlig Kostenfrei in der Community Edition. Hier liegen alle unsere Repositories.
Gitlab offers us a self-hosted replacement for Github and even more than we were expecting from it. All of our code is hosted in our private GitLab-instance, that also hosts our artifacts and is used to deploy them into production.
Our self hosted gitlab service provides us with a private and secure environment for developing and testing our internal software. All of our dockerfiles, source code and configuration files for our infrastructure are stored here.
GitLab is our main Git server, housed on a separate box inside our VPN, it's diverse features and sandbox-support allows it to be an extremely good way to secure your source code.
