GitLab vs Google Cloud Build: What are the differences?
What is 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.
What is Google Cloud Build? Continuously build, test, and deploy. Cloud Build lets you build software quickly across all languages. Get complete control over defining custom workflows for building, testing, and deploying across multiple environments such as VMs, serverless, Kubernetes, or Firebase.
GitLab belongs to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack, while Google Cloud Build can be primarily classified under "Continuous Deployment".
Some of the features offered by GitLab are:
- 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
On the other hand, Google Cloud Build provides the following key features:
- Commit to deploy in minutes
- Choose what to build
- Extremely fast builds
