Bitbucket.org vs. GitLab.com Silver
Bitbucket is a web-based version control repository hosting service owned by Atlassian, for source code and development projects that use either Mercurial or Git. It integrates well with Jira. Bitbucket doesn’t support SVN version-control system (VCS). Bitbucket offers free private repos while commercial plans charge per user. BitBucket security focuses on code access while GitLab also includes static and dynamic application security testing. GitLab allows more complex branch management and offers metrics for application performance and cycle analytics. For those needing high availability offered by Bitbucket Data Center, consider GitLab Premium for similar capabilities.
GitLab’s Maven repository makes it easier to publish and share Java libraries across an organization, and ensure dependencies are managed correctly. It is fully integrated with GitLab, including authentication and authorization.
