Are you concerned about not being able to host everything on GitLab?
Well, you are not alone.
Many businesses face this challenge.
You may have used a self-hosted GitLab instance to host your software repositories because of the obvious benefits it promised like:
- No limits on the number of (private) repositories or amount of storage.
- Full control over the hardware.
