GitLab (fewer requirements)
Similar. GitHub is more user-friendly as it does not require familiarity with Linux shell. On the other hand, GitHub’s Save Changes takes a very long time, about 10 min, while GitLab’s reconfigure is stored as-code and takes about a minute.
Minimum hardware requirements: 4 vCPU and 4 GB RAM support up to 500 users. No specific recommendation for disk size.
All configuration is done by editing the GitLab configuration file (gitlab.rb) and running reconfigure.
Supporting up to 3000 users, requires 8 vCPUs, 48 GB RAM, 300 GB attached storage, 200 GB root storage.
All configuration is done using GitHub admin web interface (“Management Console”) and clicking Save changes.
