As a universal repository, Artifactory supports all major package formats, CI servers and build tools. This “universal” concept also extends to storage as Artifactory adds support for more enterprise storage solutions including Google Cloud Storage (GCS). Artifactory uses the JetS3t framework to access GCS, and once your data is on GCS, all that is needed to get you started with Artifactory and GCS is a simple configuration file. GCS provides all the benefits of an enterprise cloud storage provider:
Since your files are now stored on the cloud, this means that your Artifactory filestore is scalable and effectively unlimited . GCS also optimizes uploading of large files using multi-part upload.
Google’s security model offers end-to-end process offering a replicated strategy with all data encrypted both in-flight and at rest.
Stability and Reliability
Putting GCS’s high level of durability and availability together with an Artifactory HA installation, gives you a highly available system end-to-end.
GCS offers the capability for disaster recovery since all files are replicated and stored with redundancy.
Artifactory supports different enterprise object storage providers and gives tools that optimize how you work with your filestore .
