Spinnaker suits well for applications which are stateless and can adapt to an immutable architecture of deployment. But for applications which are stateful and cannot afford to spin up new servers for every deployment doesn't go well with Spinnaker. It can handle only deployments which are VM based and cannot support deployments to serverless architecture like AWS Lambda etc.

Cons
JFrog
  • We can always use support for more different types of packages in Artifactory.
  • We also would like to see the Artifactory X-Ray produce continue to mature.

  • It does NOT support CFN based deployments
  • Windows based systems finds it difficult to onboard to Spinnaker.
  • Pipeline level access authorisation is not there.
  • Support for EBS volume encryption is probably missing.
  • Attach/detach EBS volumes during deployments is difficult.
  • No support to deploy the artifacts without re-creating the servers. Only pure immutable deployment are allowed.
  • Open-source - so good and bad!
  • Spinnaker on its own has 10 underlying micro services. Managing Spinnaker needs a focussed platform approach.
  • User authentication is easy but authorisation management is not straight forward.

Usability
JFrog
The main problem that seems intractable is getting the checksum of the artifact. Managing container artifacts is a game changer for us during project execution, as the container artifact type exposes all base image and Docker file steps. This makes debugging or analysis easier. Jfrog Artifactory provides promotion feature and can automated from one environment repo to another environment repo before the deployment occurs.

Support tickets take days to respond. The most basic of questions that should be knocked out in a few hours don't get answers for days. Tickets are also closed without resolution.

JFrog Artifactory has a much more friendly GUI, making package exploration less of a chore to do. Other than that, their features are pretty much comparable to each other. Both support multiple types of packages; both have API that can integrate well with CI/CD pipelines.

Return on Investment
JFrog
  • So many times it happens at the time of dependency resolution some of the servers are down e.g NPM, Maven central, PiPy in that cause our builds starts failing. By proxying these repositories with JFrog this is never happened again.
  • It reduced the additional cost of container image registry and management effort.
  • Support of integration with Build, Monitoring, and CI tools resulted in smooth automation and management.

  • By using Spinnaker we are able to deploy new versions of our product quickly.
  • A deployment takes in average 2 minutes.
  • Our investment on Spinnaker was just time learning it.
