New Functionality and Service Offering

As of January 2023, we have enabled the GitLab Pages functionality. GitLab Pages allows you to publish static web pages directly from your MGB GitLab repository and be assigned a dedicated sub-domain for your web page.

As of August 2023, we have enabled the Container and Package Registry functionality. This service has been quickly adopted and usage is increasing steadily. 

Support Stats

MGB GitLab End User Support is mostly a self service model. MGB GitLab End User Support consists of 50% FTE. The team strives to apply monthly updates to the system in order to stay current with latest software releases.

In addition, we successfully migrated an existing GitLab instance into the MGB GitLab instance. Over 200 projects and 300GB of Packages and Container images were successfully transferred, thus allowing the teams to continue their great work in support for the MGB mission.

GitLab is enabling MGB teams to successfully implement and adhere to DevOps best practices as well as enhance the security of the code that is generated and run across the enterprise. With over 130,000 executed pipelines, MGB GitLab is enabling teams to go from concept to secure code deployment with ease.
