How DevOps is better with GitLab
GitLab is a complete open-source DevOps platform, delivered as a single application, fundamentally changing the way Development, Security, and Ops teams collaborate and build software. From idea to production, GitLab helps teams improve cycle time from weeks to minutes, reduce development process costs and decrease time to market while increasing developer productivity.
Gain visibility and insight into how your business is performing.
GitLab helps teams manage and optimize their software delivery lifecycle with metrics and value stream insight in order to streamline and increase their delivery velocity. Learn more about how GitLab helps to manage your end to end value stream.
Regardless of your process, GitLab provides powerful planning tools to keep everyone synchronized.
GitLab enables portfolio planning and management through epics, groups (programs) and milestones to organize and track progress. Regardless of your methodology from Waterfall to DevOps, GitLab’s simple and flexible approach to planning meets the needs of small teams to large enterprises. GitLab helps teams organize, plan, align and track project work to ensure teams are working on the right things at the right time and maintain end to end visibility and traceability of issues throughout the delivery lifecycle from idea to production.
Create, view, and manage code and project data through powerful branching tools.
GitLab helps teams design, develop and securely manage code and project data from a single distributed version control system to enable rapid iteration and delivery of business value. GitLab repositories provide a scalable, single source of truth for collaborating on projects and code which enables teams to be productive without disrupting their workflows.
Keep strict quality standards for production code with automatic testing and reporting.
GitLab helps delivery teams fully embrace continuous integration to automate the builds, integration and verification of their code. GitLab’s industry leading CI capabilities enables automated testing, Static Analysis Security Testing, Dynamic Analysis Security testing and code quality analysis to provide fast feedback to developers and testers about the quality of their code. With pipelines that enable concurrent testing and parallel execution, teams quickly get insight about every commit, allowing them to deliver higher quality code faster.
Create a consistent and dependable software supply chain with built-in package management.
GitLab enables teams to package their applications and dependencies, manage containers, and build artifacts with ease. The private, secure container registry and artifact repositories are built-in and preconfigured out-of-the box to work seamlessly with GitLab source code management and CI/CD pipelines. Ensure DevOps acceleration with automated software pipelines that flow freely without interruption.
Security capabilities, integrated into your development lifecycle.
GitLab provides Static Application Security Testing (SAST), Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST), Container Scanning, and Dependency Scanning to help you deliver secure applications along with license compliance.
GitLab’s integrated CD solution allows you to ship code with zero-touch, be it on one or one thousand servers.
GitLab helps automate the release and delivery of applications, shortening the delivery lifecycle, streamlining manual processes, and accelerating team velocity. With zero-touch Continuous Delivery (CD) built right into the pipeline, deployments can be automated to multiple environments like staging and production, and the system just knows what to do without being told – even for more advanced patterns like canary deployments. With feature flags, built-in auditing/traceability, on-demand environments, and GitLab pages for static content delivery, you’ll be able to deliver faster and with more confidence than ever before.
Configure your applications and infrastructure.
GitLab helps teams to configure and manage their application environments. Strong integration to Kubernetes reduces the effort needed to define and configure the infrastructure required to support your application. Protect access to key infrastructure configuration details such as passwords and login information by using ‘secret variables’ to limit access to only authorized users and processes.

Automatically monitor metrics so you know how any change in code impacts your production environment.
You need feedback on what the effect of your release is in order to do release management. Get monitoring built-in, see the code change right next to the impact that it has so you can respond quicker and effectively. No need to babysit deployment to manually get feedback. Automatically detect buggy code and prevent it from affecting the majority of your users.
