Box transformed their process to become cloud-native using Docker, Kubernetes, and JFrog to run hundreds of mission-critical apps serving millions of users.
JFrog technologies are utilized at scale inside IBM to develop and deliver solutions for more than 30,000 employees that build and maintain the IBM Cloud.
SAP uses JFrog Artifactory to manage Docker containers, having migrated from Nexus. Why Artifactory? It’s simple to set up, administer and delivers rock-solid registry functionality.
Most simply, a container registry is a repository and management tool for your container images (like Docker). Container images have all the components inside to run an application or service within them - so those apps, services or resources can easily be shared. A private container registry (like what’s possible with Artifactory and now with the JFrog Container Registry) can also allow companies to apply policies, security, access controls and more to how they manage containers.
It’s a hybrid Docker and Helm container registry that provides the features above. Based on the robustness of Artifactory, JFrog Container Registry is the most hardened, proven and robust free container registry on the market as of now. JFrog Container Registry is NOT new technology, but instead is built on proven Artifactory technology. This is a new way to utilize the amazing capabilities in Artifactory specifically for Docker and Helm. Some of the biggest companies in the world (like Box and IBM) are already using this same technology to manage thousands of developers and TBs/day of data.
For on-premise usage, the licensing is free. It’s very simple: download and use for no cost on your infrastructure.
There is a cloud (SaaS) version available that is free of charge to use for a certain tier of usage. Currently, the offer is 2GB of storage and 5GB of data transfer free per month for 12 months. Overages are charged at 10c (USD $0.10). The service is available with JFrog SaaS on all three cloud providers, and is also available on the AWS marketplace. The other marketplaces will be coming in Q1 2020.
The world is rapidly moving to container registry technologies as more and more cloud-native development is happening. We want to support the community with a product offering that meets their needs. We feel that the JFrog Container Registry is a perfect solution for developers wanting a free and comprehensive container registry.
