DeRef's managed GitLab service on Catalyst Cloud gives you the foundation you need to run an effective software development team, while keeping your intellectual property and code safe on servers you control, in your home country, and without risky terms of service to cloud providers.
At DeRef, GitLab is our go-to code management solution, because it is an open source application with an incredibly strong community backing and is very widely supported with numerous integrations. It solves our clients' technical problems with a robust code management core and important additional functionality built on top, while allowing effective oversight by providing good visibility of the entire development life cycle.
