More value with everything you need in one solution

GitLab has a really nice user interface that your team will love, and also enjoy working with.

Integrated issue tracking

GitLab includes an issue tracker which you can link to any merge request.

Search through all your code, issues, wikis, commits, groups and projects. Built into GitLab.

No need to manage licenses

GitLab EE needs a license, but doesn't require any validation or separate licenses for separate servers. With BitBucket Server (Data Center), licenses are linked to servers, requiring management of licenses over servers. You can deploy 100 instances of GitLab EE for the same price as a single instance. You only pay for the total amount of users, not for how you choose to manage and scale the software.

Easy configuration

GitLab can be easily configured through ENV variables and YAML files. This makes maintaining, upgrading and deploying GitLab easy to automate. BitBucket Server requires extensive manual configuration.
