Good management for version control, with a helpful community
Pros and Cons
  • "The most valuable feature of this solution is server management."
  • "Some of the capabilities that I am looking for from a command line are not really available."

What is our primary use case?

I do a lot of data acquisitions. I establish several contacts and get accounts generated on our clusters so that our researchers can process the data.

We use Bitbucket to get flows for our pipeline management. We outline the scripts that we write to keep them in there for version control.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature of this solution is server management. 

There are other solutions that do that, but this is a solution that the global IT department has available for everyone across the organization.

What needs improvement?

It would be useful if we were able to work and manage other tickets; for example, if I were to use Jira, Confluence, or Bitbucket, all from a command-line standpoint, in addition to the web interface, it would be incredibly helpful.

I know that there are tools, packages, and different plugins that I can use to collaborate from a command-line standpoint, or through other tools, but putting the functionality into a new version would definitely help.

Some of the capabilities that I am looking for from a command line are not really available.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for three, four, maybe five years.

We use a few different versions, but they are all older.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution, but there are times where it's indexing, and if it happens during the time that I am using it, then it's not very stable. We have been using it for years, so there is a lot of data.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's scalable. The newer cloud versions of the tools may or may not alleviate the issues with stability, which is a problem with the version that I have.

How are customer service and support?

I have not contacted technical support.

They have a community. If anybody has a question they will be willing to help and blog posts.

Anybody can look at to learn more about their products and how to use the different solutions that they have.

A lot of what they have is for the new versions, which are cloud-based. For example, they are actively working on different plugins.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use Amazon and Google Cloud storage solutions. Also, AWS buckets, GCP buckets, and Kubernetes, but it depends on what's in the contract and available for the researcher, for both internal and external applications.

How was the initial setup?

I was not a part of the initial setup.

I am not familiar with how it is set up. It was done through our global team and made available for the company.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am not aware of the pricing.

What other advice do I have?

If anybody was considering this tool, I would be expecting that they would really evaluate it and know what the functionalities are ahead of time.

There are other tools that are similar, so make sure to look at everything available in that space and make sure it fits their needs.

I would rate Bitbuck Server an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Low maintenance, helpful online information, but priced high
Pros and Cons
  • "Bitbucket Server is easy to use. You can use other applications to access it, or you can use it to access the internet. You can use solutions, such as Sourcetree, which is free, and put it on your development system and use it to do the check-in, checkouts, and those type of operations. It is nice, but some other developers may agree."

    What is our primary use case?

    Bitbucket Server I use for a software repository that has code inside.

    What is most valuable?

    Bitbucket Server is easy to use. You can use other applications to access it, or you can use it to access the internet. You can use solutions, such as Sourcetree, which is free, and put it on your development system and use it to do the check-in, checkouts, and those type of operations. It is nice, but some other developers may agree.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been Bitbucket Server for approximately two and a half years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Bitbucket Server is stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Bitbucket Server is scalable because the developers are putting things in it they're not supposed to, such as binary data, and it's more or less a text code repository.

    We have approximately 150 user licenses. Sometimes vendors will have licenses in chunks. For example, from 50 to 150 or 200. There's no in-between, sometimes you have to buy more licenses than you need.

    How are customer service and support?

    I have not needed to use technical support. I am good with using this solution and can figure out problems myself or I can use the internet and find a solution.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is straightforward.

    What about the implementation team?

    I can do the integration and setup of the solution. There requires one person to do the maintenance of the solution. The solution is low maintenance. If a patch comes out, and it affects you then you need to do something. If it does not, then you do not need to do anything.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    There is a cost to use this solution but it is based on how many users are using it. If you have 50 users or 1,000 users the price will be very different.

    Bitbucket Server can be expensive and they want you to purchase their cloud solution. They are getting rid of their on-premises solution, however, you can still find them.

    What other advice do I have?

    Atlassian tools seem to use Log4j quite a bit, and they should get away from it because of the recent security issues that have happened in the last few days.

    I rate Bitbucket Server a six out of ten.

    Integrates well with other tools to form the core our our CI/CD environment
    Pros and Cons
    • "Integration of Bitbucket with JIRA & Bamboo is well done by Atlassian."
    • "Instead of providing only raw features and plugins, Atlassian should provide a ready-to-use integration of both choices to incorporate "trunk-based" development."

    What is our primary use case?

    We have this solution integrated into our CI/CD ecosystem along with JenkinsBamboo, and JIRA.

    How has it helped my organization?

    Bitbucket is just a tool. The important part is knowing how to evolve towards a "trunk-based" development model, which implies all SW development must always be "testable/ready for PROD deployment". This implies integrating/automating using many tools.

    What is most valuable?

    The Pull Request GUI is good. Integration of Bitbucket with JIRA & Bamboo is well done by Atlassian.

    Implementing DevOps CI/CD is easy to implement after a "trunk-based" development model is adopted.

    What needs improvement?

    Instead of providing only raw features and plugins, Atlassian should provide a ready-to-use integration of both choices to incorporate "trunk-based" development. For example:

    or

    • JIRA / Bitbucket / CloudBees-Jenkins

    For how long have I used the solution?

    Four years.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    Atlassian support is very good.
