In our organisation we use Jfrog Artifactory for our Software database for internal and customer use. All the software which are build in the Jenkins and are successful, the results and the whole repository is then uploaded to the Artifactory with hash of the build to recognise your own build.
  • Enough Storage Capacity
  • Compatible with Jenkins for CI
  • Easy interface
  • Login Timeout
  • Integrating was complex procedure
  • Overwhelming Learning curve
We are an embedded software product based company and the uploading of our artifacts was supposed to be done manually by an Integration Engineer upon testing the software. But now the uploading is easy with the build systems. There is less time to find the final build from the database.
Some areas where it is less suitable is when due to VPN or security issue, the files can't be downloaded and throws error.

JFrog Artifactory was mainly used to store Private artifacts registry/ binaries of technologies like Docker, Python etc., It is very useful for daily deployments. Rather the using jenkin plugins with Jenkin Pipeline, JFrog Artifactory with jenkin pipeline was more effective. It helps in reducing the latency issues we faced while accessing binaries across different verticals of region mainly due to mirrored applications.
  • Easy for regular/daily deploymetns
  • Automated feature from one env repo to other before deployment
  • Comparing feature - Way the product compares the artifact between current and previous versions
  • Maintenance of Artifacts are difficult, more documentations will be helpful
  • Issues like artifact not found
It is the best platform to store all binaries and artifacts in one place. Easy to maintain. Very useful for all developers to store and access all related data from one place. It allows us to integrate with other devops tools easily. The user interface of the product is neat and simple to use. Build management made simple.

We are improving container security with artifacts and enabling deployments on AWS. For production deployments with a pipeline augmentation process and check for any known vulnerabilities when releasing the build. We'll use managed docker pipelines to integrate with pipelines to get the benefits of automatically updating new repository models, pushing container images, and extracting artifacts.
  • Artifact solves the problem of internal packages when there are new dependencies.
  • Package managers like pip for python yarn/npm have become toolkits for mainstream developers.
  • It can be configured as the main and mirror repository source for public packages.
  • If the website you're trying to access doesn't require authentication, you'll need to whitelist it, which can create performance issues.
It works at scale and a large number of accessible pipelines for searching, repository updates and indexing will become easier. JFrog provides end-to-end solutions for all DevOps needs. With this, Jfrog Artifactory specifically implements the management of highly available repositories, with a smooth interface and integration with all the main CI tools on the market.

JFrog Artifactory is used in my organisation to store the artifacts generated from the build pipelines in both Azure and AWS and we are using this artefacts to be deployed in varuous Vm's , Apps Services and serverless computing services offered by the various cloud providers . It has vastly helped out organisation to create a devops solution that is fully automated and functional
  • The robust Artifactory solution has become an integral part of are Devops Infrastructure
  • Works seamless with on-premises, cloud and hybrid infrastructure model
  • Provides Redundancy and scalability
  • The support provided by Jfrog team needs to be better in response to the increasing demand
  • A number of users reported that they are being logged out after certain interval of time . This hampers productivity and should be fixed ASAP.
  • Some of its competitors provide reporting and analysis based on some custom parameters which is lacking in JFROG
JFROG is like a All in one solution of the organisations or the teams which are using mostly java based products . All the artefacts are stored in one solution for whole team/ company. Seamless integration with products like Jenkins , harness and almost all CI/CD pipelines solution is the main highlight of this tool.

JFrog Artifactory has been used in my organization primarily as private artifact registry to manage and store application packages, component dependencies, application libraries, Docker containers and images, and Helm charts. As a business usecase, the product has been integrated in our Azure Devops CI/CD pipeline which means the docker images are scanned and pulled in from the artifact registry before the images gets eventually deployed from the release pipeline to our Kubernetes cluster, in our case its Openshift. The product can easily integrate with our existing technology stack and thereby overcome the complexity of working with different software package management systems, and hence provides consistency to our Cl/CD process.
  • Artifactory Management acting as a repository manager of docker images, application and component dependencies
  • Automate pipelines and thereby releasing changes faster
  • Supports high availability and scalability with multi site replication
  • Product support can be improved so that the problem ticket can be addressed quickly
  • Enterprise version is bit costly
  • Retrieving images from artifactory registry sometimes result in a cached image which enforce our CI pipeline to rebuild the entire image for the latest changes to reflect
It is very well suited to store your docker images in a private artifact registry. It can also be used to integrate seamlessly with your existing Devops Pipelines. If the requirement is to use public repo , then this product may not be effective. Similarly, if there is budget constraint , then using the enterprise license might be bit expensive compared to other products in market.

We used JFrog Artifactory as a binary repository. There are packages that we built for customers that need a private repository to store. Moreover, since we have a wide range of projects with various technologies, our packages are quite diverse in nature. From simple jar files, npm packages, and docker images to even some zip archives. JFrog Artifactory could store all of them with sophisticated categories to keep them organized and & have excellent integration with CI/CD pipelines to make sure the built packages are ready to be deployed.
  • Binary repository.
  • Categories to keep things organized.
  • Support packages of all types.
  • Integrate well with CI/CD pipelines.
  • Setting up credentials.
  • Setting up protected/restricted repositories.
  • Secret rotation.
If you need a private repository for your diverse types of packages, then JFrog Artifactory suits you well. Things are well organized with a user-friendly GUI. API support is good enough to integrate with CI/CD pipelines, making the whole process from building the code to deploying artifacts to environments a breeze. Protected/restricted repositories are supported as well, with simple access control.

We use JFrog Artifactory as our internal artificial, it is accessible only via office internal vpn and very secure, majorly we host Java and react libraries in it. It is a nice integration with Java artifacts, all code calls for dependency resolvement first goes to jfrog,which cache it as well. On the top,it supports auditing and role based access as well
  • Fast access
  • Role based access
  • Support for internal artifacts
  • Access can be private
  • Sometimes from mvn log while connecting to jfrog artifact,it is not clear that where is the issue
  • UI can be more simple
  • Filter search can be faster
  • User should able to see the repositories published by him
It has nice integration with Java artifacts,so companies that majorly use Java, should use it. Also it is not suited for hosting container and this is also an area where this product can improve, jfrog website also have proper documentation and code examples to integrate with user repositories. It is well suited where we need rba access with some auditing

JFrog Artifactory is being used as the single binary repository for our entire enterprise. We store everything from application artifacts to Docker images to NPM, Maven, and Python packages as dependencies in [JFrog] Artifactory. It's a mission-critical component of our CICD pipelines.
  • Stores and Manages build artifacts and packages.
  • Works as container registry as well.
  • Easily manages local and remote repositories along with live replication.
  • JFrog Artifactory X-Ray isn't mature enough.
  • There should be some built-in backup and restore features.
  • Support responsiveness needs to be improved it takes days to get response.
  • OSS version has very basic features and enterprise one is costly.
In terms of hosting packages, artifact repositories, and container registries it's great. But artifact scanning is not up to mark and this feature comes with extra cost.

JFrog Artifactory is being used as the single binary repository for our entire enterprise. We store everything from application binaries to Docker images to Chef cookbooks in [JFrog] Artifactory. It's a mission-critical component of our CICD pipelines.
  • The core Artifactory offering is very reliable
  • Their customer support is outstanding
  • They put on an excellent conference each year with SwampUp.
  • They support a highly available architecture to deploy ARtifactory in the public cloud in a resilient manner.
  • 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.
[JFrog] Artifactory is the gold standard in binary repositories in the tech industry. You can either run a hosted version of [JFrog] Artifactory or leverage their managed SaaS offering. You'll pay a bit more for the SaaS offering but have less overhead to manage than running the hosted version yourself.

It's used by our software engineering development teams across our IT organization. It solves our artifactory caching, security scan problem. This way, we can confidently build software and apps in which the dependencies are managed and tracked, and also checked for license/privacy compliance, as well as security.
  • Handles both Java and Javascript artifactory/dependency.
  • Support Java very well with some built in features.
  • Uses relational databases (a well-known technology) to store artifacts, lower barriers to entry.
  • Preferment
  • CI/CD integration. We understood they do have a pipeline, so our organization already started with Jenkins, and my understanding is that not many orgs are using the JFrog pipeline.
When an org decides to select an artifactory or repository, JFrog should be high on the list, along with other competitors such as Nexus, to a lesser extent, GitHub and GitLab
Not many issues I am aware of other than routine maintenance.

App repository. Not very complex, but oversized. Our current repo is in the terabytes.
  • Stores code easily
  • Easy to export/import repos
  • Support is atrocious. Takes days to respond
  • The app management is non-existent. Some home-brewed solutions are out there, but not reliable for enterprise systems
  • Basic features require enterprise license
  • Backup/recovery process too slow and cumbersome
The open source solution is great for a small startup.
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.
