From version 5.4, Artifactory supports managing your Artifactory filestore on the cloud with Azure Blob Storage providing you with:

  1. Massive scalability
    On the cloud, your Artifactory filestore is massively scalable. You may freely continue to upload files without having to install or maintain any file storage devices. You can even upload files larger than 5 GB using multi-part upload with the blob size limit currently at 4.75 TB. Currently, there is also a 500 TB limit on an Azure Blob Storage account.
  2. Security
    An Azure Blob Storage account offers a variety of security capabilities such as role-based access control, Azure Active Directory, in-transit security, Storage Service encryption and more. For full details on the security capabilities provided by Azure Blob Storage, please refer to  Azure Storage Security Overview.
  3. Disaster recovery
    Since your files are replicated and stored with redundancy, using Azure Blob Storage offers the capability for disaster recovery.

Support for Azure Blob Storage is included with JFrog Enterprise Edition.

In order to use Azure Blob Storage with Artifactory, make sure you first install or upgrade to Artifactory V5.4.0 or later. 


Backup your system. Your current filestore will be deleted.

Setting up Artifactory to use Azure Blob Storage will delete all files in your current filestore.

If you already have a running installation of Artifactory, then before you setup Artifactory to use Azure Blob Storage and migrate your filestore to the cloud, we strongly recommend that you do a complete system backup.

To learn more, please refer to Introduction to Microsoft Azure Storage in the Microsoft Azure documentation.
