GitHub Enterprise vs GitLab: What are the differences?
Developers describe GitHub Enterprise as "The on-premises version of GitHub, which you can deploy and manage in your own, secure environment". GitHub Enterprise lets developers use the tools they love across the development process with support for popular IDEs, continuous integration tools, and hundreds of third party apps and services. On the other hand, GitLab is detailed as "Open source self-hosted Git management software". GitLab offers git repository management, code reviews, issue tracking, activity feeds and wikis. Enterprises install GitLab on-premise and connect it with LDAP and Active Directory servers for secure authentication and authorization. A single GitLab server can handle more than 25,000 users but it is also possible to create a high availability setup with multiple active servers.
GitHub Enterprise and GitLab belong to "Code Collaboration & Version Control" category of the tech stack.
