# GitLab Helm Chart
> **Note**:
* This chart is deprecated, and is being replaced by the [cloud native GitLab chart](https://gitlab.com/charts/helm.gitlab.io/blob/master/README.md). For more information on available charts, please see our [overview](index.md#chart-overview).
* These charts have been tested on Google Kubernetes Engine and Azure Container Service. Other Kubernetes installations may work as well, if not please [open an issue](https://gitlab.com/charts/charts.gitlab.io/issues).
> **Note:**
* This chart has been tested on Google Kubernetes Engine and Azure Container Service.
**This chart is deprecated.** For small installations on Kubernetes today, we recommend the beta [`gitlab-omnibus` Helm chart](gitlab_omnibus.md).
A new [cloud native GitLab chart](index.md#cloud-native-gitlab-chart) is in development with increased scalability and resilience, among other benefits. The cloud native chart will replace both the `gitlab` and `gitlab-omnibus` charts when available later this year.
For more information on available GitLab Helm Charts, please see our [overview](index.md#chart-overview).
Due to the significant architectural changes, migrating will require backing up data out of this instance and restoring it into the new deployment. For more information on available GitLab Helm Charts, please see our [overview](index.md#chart-overview).
## Introduction
The `gitlab` Helm chart deploys just GitLab into your Kubernetes cluster, and offers extensive configuration options. This chart requires advanced knowledge of Kubernetes to successfully use. We **strongly recommend** the [gitlab-omnibus](gitlab_omnibus.md) chart.
This chart is deprecated, and will be replaced by the [cloud native GitLab chart](https://gitlab.com/charts/helm.gitlab.io/blob/master/README.md). Due to the difficulty in supporting upgrades, migrating will require exporting data out of this instance and importing it into the new deployment.
This chart includes the following:
- Deployment using the [gitlab-ce](https://hub.docker.com/r/gitlab/gitlab-ce) or [gitlab-ee](https://hub.docker.com/r/gitlab/gitlab-ee) container image

**[This chart is beta](#limitations), and is the best way to install GitLab on Kubernetes today.** A new [cloud native GitLab chart](index.md#cloud-native-gitlab-chart) is in development with increased scalability and resilience, among other benefits. Once available, the cloud native chart will be the recommended installation method for Kubernetes, and this chart will be deprecated.

## Introduction
This chart provides an easy way to get started with GitLab, provisioning an installation with nearly all functionality enabled. SSL is automatically provisioned via [Let's Encrypt](https://letsencrypt.org/).
This Helm chart is in beta, and will be deprecated by the [cloud native GitLab chart](https://gitlab.com/charts/helm.gitlab.io/blob/master/README.md) once available. Due to the difficulty in supporting upgrades, migrating will require exporting data out of this instance and importing it into the new deployment.
This Helm chart is in beta, and is suited for small to medium deployments. It will be deprecated by the [cloud native GitLab chart](https://gitlab.com/charts/helm.gitlab.io/blob/master/README.md) once available. Due to the significant architectural changes, migrating will require backing up data out of this instance and importing it into the new deployment.
