Software distribution is a critical part of your delivery process. Once applications are developed, software binaries (artifacts) need to be securely and reliably distributed to the next stage in your SDLC or to the last mile of deployment to production – across vastly distributed, complex runtime environments and infrastructure ‘edges’.
Modern delivery trends — such as rapid development and deployment, releasing software across large-scale infrastructure and edge/IoT devices, and increased adoption of cloud-native apps — all slow down distribution due to network utilization, security, and complex topologies’ overhead.
Distribution speed impacts delivery speed and failure to address distribution bottlenecks is a major risk
