JFrog has built four products that are attempting to change the world of software. The company understands that in today’s coding world everything needs to be not only fast, but meticulously composed of all the different levels of coding in order to succeed. So that is why with four products, JFrog is trying to cover every single thing that a DevOps company would ever need. Take Artifactory, JFrog’s Universal Binary Repository Manager, for example. As a repository for different code components, Artifactory provides one place in which all the different code components can be stored in one place. In today’s world, it is rare for companies to code with only a single coding device, most companies utilizing at least a few different technologies such as python, ruby, etc. Artifactory was built to help teams comprised of hundreds of developers, in any company.
This year, JFrog released Artifactory 5.1, which focuses on the heart of DevOps – configuration management. This latest release features added support for Chef Cookbook repositories and Puppet Module repositories, taking configuration management to the next level. By managing configuration packages through a binary repository, IT and DevOps organizations that are working hard on configuration management with Chef or Puppet, now have many more capabilities at their fingertips, including:
- Distributing and Sharing Configuration
- Security and Access Control
- Smart Search
- Reliable and Consistent Access to Packages
- Checksum-based Storage
- Automation through REST API
- Configuration Management at a Global Scale
- Fully Cloud Native
In addition, JFrog’s CEO Shlomi Ben Haim recently wrote a blog post on JFrog’s newest update to Artifactory, and where DevOps is headed in 2017. This year, and with the new update, JFrog is focusing even more on continuous updates, which is one thing that JFrog claims as a real pain for its customers.
