System Requirements 


Hardware Requirements 


The Omnibus GitLab package requires about 2.5 GB of storage space for installation. 

Apart from a local hard drive you can also mount a volume that supports the network file system (NFS) protocol. This volume might be located on a file server, a network attached storage (NAS) device, a storage area network (SAN) or on an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Block Store (EBS) volume. 


If you have enough RAM and a recent CPU the speed of GitLab is mainly limited by hard drive seek times. Having a fast drive (7200 RPM and up) or a solid state drive (SSD) improves the responsiveness of GitLab. 



4 cores is the recommended minimum number of cores and supports up to 500 users 

8 cores supports up to 1000 users 



Memory requirements are dependent on the number of users and expected workload. Your exact needs may be more, depending on your workload. Your workload is influenced by factors such as – but not limited to – how active your users are, how much automation you use, mirroring, and repository/change size. 

 The following is the recommended minimum Memory hardware guidance for a handful of example GitLab user base sizes. 


4 GB RAM is the required minimum memory size and supports up to 500 users 

Our Memory Team is working to reduce the memory requirement. 

8 GB RAM supports up to 1000 users 


Parent company 

GitLab Inc. was established in 2014 to continue the development of the open-source code-sharing platform launched in 2011 by Dmytro Zaporozhets.  

In 2012, Company decided to build a business around it.
