GitLab is an open-source solution.

GitLab's pricing is good compared to others on the market.

In terms of the pricing for GitLab, on a scale of one to five, with one being expensive and five being cheap, I'm rating pricing for the solution a four. It could still be cheaper because right now, my company has a small team, and sometimes it's difficult to use a paid product for a small team. You'd hope the team will grow and scale, but currently, you're paying a high license fee for a small team. I'm referring to the GitLab license that has premium features and will give you all features. This can be a problem for management to approve the high price of the license for a team this small.

I can't speak to the exact cost or licensing structure. I don't deal with this aspect of the product.

When I was hired (in 2020) they told me that they were using an open-source version. I'm not sure if that's still the case as it's a quite big company. Nowadays they should be using some kind of paid version, as the demand is pretty high, as far as I know. I'm not sure of the exact licensing costs.

We are using its free version, and we are evaluating its Premium version. Its Ultimate version is very expensive.

I don't mind the price because I use the free version. The licensing fee could be less expensive.

It is very expensive. We can't bear it now, and we have to find another solution. We have a yearly subscription in which we can increase the number of licenses, but we have to pay at the end of the year.

Its price is fine. It is on the cheaper side and not expensive. You have to pay additionally for GitLab CI/CD minutes. Initially, we used the free version. When we ran out of GitLab minutes, we migrated to the paid version.

GitLab can be used free of charge but if you use it for years and move to a paid license then it is better because you have more services. I think that we pay approximately $100 USD per month.

Has anyone got experience building automated workflows using GitLab? How does it compare with other CI/CD solutions? The solution should be good at deployment of apps in AWS and Azure cloud.
