Apache
Well suited for small organizations to medium-sized teams/organizations. Apache Archiva is well suited for:
  • It acts as a central repository/proxy of the artifacts generated and used by the teams.
  • It provides control on which open source repositories can be utilized by the team.
  • Saves network bandwidth by reducing outbound traffic.
Apache Archiva is less appropriate for organizations where immediate support/bug resolutions are required.

Amazon AWS
We have a small team with limited resources and it worked well for us. Hence I can conclude that AWS Code Artifact are well suited for organizations which have limited resources in terms of hardware and access to administrators for setting up artifact repository in-house. AWS Code Artifact is also suited particularly well for organization(s) which are already using AWS Services/Infrastructure (eg. EC2) . It works quite well with existing AWS services and completes the gap which existed in AWS offering for quite some time. Organizations can move their entire DevOps toolchain and infrastructure to Amazon. It is less appropriate for organization(s) which rely on artifacts like Debian, C/C++, Go etc as AWS does not support those fully.
