I understand that this tool may not be for everyone, but it served its purpose perfectly for us. It allows us to safely change to older repositories in case we need to roll back any changes. It has definitely reduced operational costs for us due to allowing us to safely manage our own packages without relying solely on external providers, which are not always reliable. However, it's worth mentioning that the setup/maintenance can be a little bit fiddly for some users. There's a learning curve here, but, to us, it was totally worth it.

RubyGems is a great packaging library primarily because of its verbose logging information and easy to navigate system architecture. We've dealt with artifactory systems in the past for Java and JavaScript, and RubyGems just makes it a lot easier to handle the packaging and deployment of our reusable libraries. We've noticed in the past that there are times where (if all 200+ teams) are releasing at a similar time that publishing the gems can lag, but that's fairly rare.

RubyGems has strong community support and finding issues to errors is as simple as searching for the error message you're receiving (but usually the error is clear enough without having to bother with that). Honestly, the framework is simple enough that support isn't needed much, but it has been helpful to us in the past when we have needed it.

RubyGems is easier to use and to troubleshoot issues overall. Sometimes when troubleshooting in other systems errors are masked and it takes a trained eye or a lot of time searching through Google trying to find out what it really means. RubyGems is very verbose and allows for quick troubleshooting of any deployment problems.
