JFrog & Azure

Sunnyvale, CA – March 2017 JFrog, the leading DevOps accelerator, is announcing today that its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) version of Artifactory is now available on Microsoft Azure. With this addition, JFrog Artifactory SaaS is now available for quick and easy provisioning on Microsoft Azure.

JFrog Artifactory SaaS offers a multitude of features that developers and DevOps engineers require including the most important, having complete control, insight, and management of your binaries throughout the software development lifecycle.  Artifactory SaaS provides out-of-the box integration with all leading CI servers including Jenkins, CircleCI, TeamCity, Bamboo, and TFS; and support for an enormous number of repositories and package formats including Docker registries, CocoaPods, Chef, Puppet, Bower, Conan, Vagrant, Git LFS, PyPi, Debian, npm, RubyGems, RPM, Opkg, NuGet, PHP Composer, and many moreShelly-Kit (1)

Moreover, Artifactory SaaS provides powerful REST APIs for release automation & deployment, LDAP authentication support, role based authorization, and the ability for developers to understand everything they need to know about their binaries associated with their builds through the use of Artifactory Query Language (AQL).  Artifactory SaaS makes it easy for DevOps teams to have full transparency and control of the entire build and release process, all with the power of cloud-based development (immediate scalability with flexibility, up-to-date versions of Artifactory, automated backups, SLA-based support, among others).   

The Microsoft Azure edition of JFrog Artifactory SaaS lets you keep your binaries on the cloud infrastructure of your choice. This means the power of Microsoft Azure for storage, compute, and networking are applied to this service. You can keep your binaries in the same environment as your production environment so it’s all in one place, or choose to keep them in different environments for risk management.

“Together with JFrog, we want to help companies develop software as fast as possible,” said Shelly Landsmann, GM of Microsoft Israel. “We understand the need to quickly develop, test, and deploy software and applications, and with JFrog Artifactory, we are providing global enterprises with a robust cloud computing service.”

“Our customers care about rapid releases and reliable cloud infrastructure and the combination of JFrog Artifactory and Microsoft Azure addresses this exact need” said Kit Merker, JFrog’s Vice President of Business Development. “No one wants just a single package repository; all of our customers expect one DevOps stop that supports their Docker, Debian or Maven packages, with this partnership they can run it on Azure’s powerful infrastructure” Merker also added “We are committed to making DevOps available to everyone, everywhere and our new partnership with Microsoft Azure is a great milestone in this roadmap.”


JFrog is essential to software development organizations, in all industry sectors, who need to release software updates at an ever-increasing pace to stay ahead in highly competitive markets. With release cycles getting shorter and shorter, JFrog’s products empower organizations to adopt DevOps practices, allowing them to securely scale up and automate their binary artifact workflow at all stages of the development cycle, from development through distribution to end users and devices.
