Our Docker image is a great way to quickly bring up an instance of GitLab. You can use it to try new features, or mount the storage volumes and use it for all your GitLab needs.
It has been over two years since we started thinking about Docker and GitLab together. In those years we have pushed over 100 CE and EE docker images to Docker Hub, and have built new features like GitLab CI with built-in Docker support, helping us (and you!) to test and build our applications easier and faster.
