Installation & Setup

Artifactory supports the following databases that you can use depending on your requirements.

Artifactory also comes with a built-in embedded Derby database.

Artifactory supports the following modes of operation.

  • Metadata in the database and artifacts stored on the file system (This is the default and recommended configuration).

  • Metadata and artifacts stored as BLOBs in the database

Artifactory uniquely stores artifacts using checksum-based storage. For more information, see Checksum-Based Storage.

Accessing a remote database

When using an external database, you need a reliable, stable, and low-latency network connection to ensure proper functioning of your system.

When using a full-DB configuration, we strongly recommend a high-bandwidth to accommodate the transfer of large BLOBs over the network.
