Sunnyvale, Calif., November 30, 2021 (AWS re:Invent) — JFrog Ltd. (“JFrog”) (NASDAQ: FROG), the Liquid Software company and creators of the JFrog DevOps Platform, today introduced a new container registry and package manager for running JFrog Artifactory with Kubernetes clusters on-premises, in the cloud, or both. Available immediately in the AWS Marketplace, JFrog Artifactory for Amazon EKS Anywhere allows customers to experience all the benefits of cloud-native container technology in an easy-to-manage, private instance so they can rest assured data privacy, security, and regulatory requirements are met. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) Anywhere is a new deployment option for Amazon EKS that allows Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) customers to create and operate Kubernetes clusters on customer-managed infrastructure.
“When it comes to cloud-native infrastructure, our first objective has always been to offer customers the freedom of choice and flexibility,” said Yoav Landman, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at JFrog. “We’re thrilled to work with AWS on providing a solution that gives customers a new option for scaling and extending their DevOps pipelines to Kubernetes-based platforms, regardless of physical location, achieving data privacy and proximity for their containers and other binary packages.”
JFrog Artifactory for Amazon EKS Anywhere ushers in a new era of flexibility, scalability, and ease-of-use for customers wanting to utilize containers within their self-managed IT environment – whether that be on-prem or in the cloud. Amazon EKS Anywhere offers the same user interface and best-in-class capabilities as the SaaS version of Amazon EKS, delivering a seamless user experience across on-prem, cloud-based, or hybrid environments.
“We’ve been using JFrog Artifactory on AWS at Monster.com, and it has been a winning combination for us,” said Martin Eggenberger, Chief Architect, Monster.com. “After evaluating our options, we went with Artifactory because of its breadth of coverage – we were able to avoid the operational challenges of using multiple tools. Artifactory on EKS Anywhere is an exciting next step from the two vendors because it combines a top-notch Kubernetes distribution with a top-notch DevOps solution.”
Other key benefits of JFrog Artifactory for Amazon EKS Anywhere include:
- Seamless User Experience. Whether you choose to run JFrog Artifactory for Amazon EKS on-premises, in the cloud, or hybrid, you will have a familiar interface and functions that make it easy to evolve your instance over time without the pains of re-tooling or training.
- Quick Start Helm Chart. Get up and running quickly thanks to an enhanced Helm chart that eases the installation process, accelerating your path to value and productivity.
- One-stop Licensing. Customers only need to purchase one license in AWS Marketplace for a single server instance of JFrog Artifactory and Amazon EKS Anywhere. This results in a simple, single point of contact for managing licenses. They can either purchase outright or use their AWS credits to obtain their license.
- Simplified Kubernetes Management. JFrog Artifactory for Amazon EKS Anywhere also reduces operational complexity when running Kubernetes by allowing customers to leverage AWS for on-premises support of operating Kubernetes at scale.
“AWS is committed to providing the best services for customers to deploy and operate containerized applications,” said Bob Wise, General Manager of Kubernetes, AWS. “The availability of JFrog Artifactory for Amazon EKS Anywhere will allow our joint customers to benefit from containerization at scale, whether their workloads are running in the cloud or on-premises.”
Industry research estimates over 3.5 billion applications are currently running in Docker containers, and 48% of organizations worldwide are managing containers at hyper-scale using Kubernetes. However, while containers are faster and more lightweight than virtual machines – they can often be difficult to manage. Therefore – until now – many companies have opted to have their container instances managed by third-parties or cloud service providers.
