GitLab provides [official Helm Charts](#official-gitlab-helm-charts-recommended) which is the recommended way to run GitLab with Kubernetes.
There are also two other sets of GitLab Helm Charts:
There are also two other sets of charts:
* Our [upcoming cloud native Charts](#upcoming-cloud-native-helm-charts), which are in development but will eventually replace the current official charts.
* [Community contributed charts](#community-contributed-charts).

The best way to deploy GitLab on Kubernetes is to use the [gitlab-omnibus](gitlab_omnibus.md) chart. It includes everything needed to run GitLab, including: a [Runner](https://docs.gitlab.com/runner/), [Container Registry](https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/project/container_registry.html#gitlab-container-registry), [automatic SSL](https://github.com/kubernetes/charts/tree/master/stable/kube-lego), and an [Ingress](https://github.com/kubernetes/ingress/tree/master/controllers/nginx).
To deploy just the GitLab Runner, utilize the [gitlab-runner](gitlab_runner_chart.md) chart. It offers a quick way to configure and deploy the Runner on Kubernetes, regardless of where your GitLab server may be running.
If advanced configuration of GitLab is required, the [gitlab](gitlab_chart.md) chart can be used which deploys the GitLab service along with optional Posgres and Redis. It offers extensive configuration options some of which may not yet be available in the `gitlab-omnibus` chart, but requires deep knowledge of Kubernetes and Helm to use.

These charts utilize our [GitLab Omnibus Docker images](https://docs.gitlab.com/omnibus/docker/README.html). You can report any issues and feedback related these charts at

## Upcoming Cloud Native Helm Charts
GitLab is working towards a building a [cloud native deployment model](https://gitlab.com/charts/helm.gitlab.io/blob/master/README.md). A key part of this is to isolate each service into it's [own Docker container and Helm chart](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/omnibus-gitlab/issues/2420), rather than utilizing the all-in-one container image of the [current charts](#official-gitlab-helm-charts-recommended).

By offering individual containers and charts, we will be able to provide a number of benefits:
* Easier horizontal scaling of each service
* Smaller more efficient images
* Potential for rolling updates and canaries within a service
* and plenty more.
This is a large project and will be worked on over the span of multiple releases. For the most up to date status and release information, please see our [tracking issue](https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/omnibus-gitlab/issues/2420).
## Community Contributed Helm Charts
The community has also [contributed GitLab charts](https://github.com/kubernetes/charts/tree/master/stable/gitlab-ce) to the [Helm Stable Repository](https://github.com/kubernetes/charts#repository-structure).
