GitLab's shift from Azure to GCP is not due to ex-GitHub users

At first glance, it would be easy to believe GitLab’s migration from Azure to Google Cloud is to distance itself from Microsoft and make its users who jumped ship happier. However, the company says this is not the case.

Months before the GitHub acquisition was announced, GitLab maintained a Geo (allows for full, read-only mirrors of GitLab instances) secondary of its service running on Google Cloud with an up-to-date copy ‘of about 200TB of Git data and 2TB of relational data in PostgreSQL’ in preparation for a migration.

In parallel, the company also transferred around 200TB of file artifacts to GCS (Google Cloud Storage) from their previous NFS servers which they said ran the risk of being a single point-of-failure.
