Artifactory supports replication of repositories between two Artifactory instances to support development by different teams distributed over distant geographical sites. The benefits of replication are:
Ensuring developers all work with the same version of remote artifacts
Ensuring build artifacts are shared efficiently between the different development teams
Overcoming connectivity issues such as network latency and stability when accessing remote artifacts
Accessing specific versions of remote artifacts
Artifactory versions for replication
We strongly recommend that replication is only performed between servers running the same version of Artifactory.
We do not recommend using Artifactory repository replication in conjunction with AWS S3 cross-region replication of your filestore. Such a configuration can cause synchronization issues.
