From version 4.6, Artifactory fully supports Google Cloud Storage (GCS) so your Artifactory filestore can reside on the cloud. This presents several benefits:
- Unlimited scalability
Since your files are now stored on the cloud, this means that your Artifactory filestore is scalable and effectively unlimited (to the extent offered by your storage provider). 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.
Google's security model offers end-to-end process offering a replicated strategy with all data encrypted both in-flight and at rest.
- Disaster recovery
Since your files are replicated and stored with redundancy, this offers the capability for disaster recovery.
Support for GCS is included with JFrog Enterprise Edition.
In order to use GCS with Artifactory, make sure you first install or upgrade to Artifactory V4.6 or later.
|title||Backup your system. Your current filestore will be deleted.|
Setting up Artifactory to use GCS will delete all files in your current filestore.
If you already have a running installation of Artifactory, then before you setup Artifactory to use GCS and migrate your filestore to the cloud, we strongly recommend that you do a complete system backup.
