GitLab compared to other DevOps tools

XebiaLabs vs GitLab

XebiaLabs is a platform that connects bring-your-own DevOps tools for release, deployment, and analytics. It stitches together your choice of tools “In the same way a conductor directs a symphony production, cueing all of the myriad participants to work together for a synchronized, flowing, harmonious performance, XebiaLabs orchestrates the tools in a pipeline to ensure successful, optimized release flow.”

DevOps-specific Key Performance Indicators help you identify bottlenecks and improve processes. Tune your processes for highest efficiency. Anticipate delays and take action before they turn into failures. Automate release activities to optimize delivery.

While attempting to solve the same challenge as GitLab, XebiaLabs’ approach remains expensive and complex relative to GitLab’s single application across the entire SDLC.

FEATURES

Issue Boards

GitLab has Issue Boards, each list of an Issue Board is based on a label that exists in your issue tracker. The Issue Board will therefore match the state of your issue tracker in a user-friendly way.

Cycle Analytics

GitLab provides a dashboard that lets teams measure the time it takes to go from planning to monitoring. GitLab can provide this data because it has all the tools built-in: from the idea, to the CI, to code review, to deploy to production.

Granular user roles and flexible permissions

Manage access and permissions with five different user roles and settings for external users. Set permissions according to people’s role, rather than either read or write access to a repository. Don’t share the source code with people that only need access to the issue tracker.

Revert specific commits or a merge request from the UI

Revert any commit or a single merge request from GitLab’s UI, with a click of a button.

Environments and deployments

GitLab CI is capable of not only testing or building your projects, but also deploying them in your infrastructure, with the added benefit of giving you a way to track your deployments. Environments are like tags for your CI jobs, describing where code gets deployed.
