On the subject of Bamboo, I think it would be a better solution if we had

We could ask for a solaris zone to run our own utilities donated or
otherwise.  And yes we are allowed to acquire licenses.

Or will we be installing these and running them externally if the solution

Infra often bulks when you ask them to install a new commercial product as
was the case with JIRA and confluence however they're perfectly fine with
giving us a solaris zone from which we can install this software and manage
it ourselves.  I guess infra just does not need more hassle with more
products they have to manage.  I don't blame them for it considering the
number of projects and the size of the foundation these days.

I can think of at least 5 build server products that I have used in the last

Right.  I think OSS solutions are particularly good since we have access to
the source but that might be too much of a hassle considering the state of
these OSS products today.  You're right that we just need to pick one for
now and get it working.  Perhaps we can re-evaluate again after 6-12 months.
