Azure blob storage requires JFrog Container Registry, Pro, Enterprise X , or an Enterprise+ license.
Artifactory supports managing your Artifactory filestore on the cloud with Azure Blob Storage providing you with the following benefits.
On the cloud, your Artifactory filestore is massively scalable. You may freely continue to upload files without having to install or maintain any file storage devices. You can even upload files larger than 5 GB using multi-part upload with the blob size limit currently at 4.75 TB.
An Azure Blob Storage account offers a variety of security capabilities such as role-based access control, Azure Active Directory, in-transit security, Storage Service encryption, and more. For full details on the security capabilities provided by Azure Blob Storage, please refer to Azure Storage Security Overview.
Since your files are replicated and stored with redundancy, using Azure Blob Storage offers the capability for disaster recovery.
Back up your system. Your current filestore will be deleted.
Setting up Artifactory to use Azure Blob Storage will delete all files in your current filestore.
If you already have a running installation of Artifactory, then before you set up Artifactory to use Azure Blob Storage and migrate your filestore to the cloud, we strongly recommend that you do a complete system backup.
Set up Azure Blob Storage
Artifactory requires the use of Azure block blob storage, a storage system optimized for unstructured text and binary data. Block blobs are made up of blocks of data that can be managed individually, which is appropriate as an Artifactory filestore.
Before setting up an Artifactory for filestore, you must create an appropriate storage account on Azure.
