Overview

You can host the JFrog Container Registry as an On-Prem (Freemium) version on your own infrastructure or use the SaaS version hosted by JFrog. Both versions of JFrog Container Registry share an almost identical set of features, look and feel and functionality but provide you with the flexibility you need when it comes to meeting your organization's hosting and infrastructure requirements. 

After you have determined which version best accommodates your needs, you can proceed to get started.
