GitLab Runner on Docker
· 3 min. read
Recently at Courtsite, we launched a single project-specific GitLab Runner on Docker using Hetzner Cloud for approximately $7 / month. We originally launched it on our production Kubernetes cluster, but it had an immediate adverse impact on our production services. We reexamined our solutions, and opted for a dedicated compute instance as it was a simpler, and more cost-effective (both monetarily, and infrastructure) solution with the least risks. The setup process was far simpler than what was (and probably still is) documented at GitLab’s website.
