Overview

The JFrog Cloud with Amazon's CloudFront CDN solution allows Enterprise users to manage, control and distribute high volumes of software distribution across multiple locations. 

The main advantages of using Artifactory with CDN are:

  • Integrated advanced CDN solution without having to deal with the complexity of setting up a separate external CDN Caching system.
  • Powerful fine-grained permissions model and authentication capabilities, as well as allow access to content via signed URLs. 
  • Full control of which content is accessible via CDN as the CDN can be enabled at the repository level and can be managed using the UI or via the REST API.
  • Apply country and IP filtering.

CDN is supported on AWS only, including AWS marketplace customers. All AWS regions are supported except for North California and China.

Downloading Artifacts from Artifactory with CDN

The following workflow occurs when users download artifacts from the Artifactory with CDN:

  1. The user submits a download artifact request to Artifactory.
  2. Artifactory sends back a redirected CDN URL to the user.
  3. A redirected download request is automatically routed by the user to the nearest CDN.
  4. The requested artifact is downloaded to the user.
