This feature is supported on the Self-Hosted platform, with Pro, Enterprise X, and Enterprise+ licenses.


The google-storage-v1 template that uses JetS3t has become unsupported from Artifactory version 7.46.3 and they no longer work. You should therefore use google-storage-v2 instead, which uses the official Google Storage SDK. The transition is mostly seamless between v1 and v2, since parameters are the same between the two providers. You can no longer pass credentials in the chain in v2. You can find further guidance here.

Artifactory fully supports Google Cloud Storage (GCS) so your Artifactory filestore can reside on the cloud. This presents several benefits.

  1. Unlimited scalability

    Since your files are now stored on the cloud, this means that your Artifactory filestore is scalable and effectively unlimited (to the extent offered by your storage provider). 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.

  2. Security

    Google's security model offers an end-to-end process offering a replicated strategy with all data encrypted both in-flight and at rest.

  3. Disaster recovery

    Since your files are replicated and stored with redundancy, this offers the capability for disaster recovery.

Back up your system.

If you already have a running installation of Artifactory, then before you set up Artifactory to use GCS and migrate your filestore to the cloud, we strongly recommend that you do a complete system backup.Complete System Backup

JFrog provides binary provider templates to configure your filestore in Google Cloud Storage.
