JFrog Artifactory version 3.1 is the firm's latest version of its Binary Repository with High-Availability (HA) capabilities. Artifactory works alongside the firm's Bintray "software distribution social platform" and aims to prevent service disruptions during software development. It now provides faster response times by enabling multiple Artifactory servers to run at once using the same data.
Bintray is a social service for developers to publish, download, store, promote, and share open source software packages. Artifactory 3.1 supports a High-Availability network configuration with a cluster of two or more Artifactory servers on the same local area network (LAN). This means that if one server goes down, the network will continue to run undisrupted.
By supporting load balancing on multiple Artifactory server nodes, developers can leverage parallel read-write request processing and support heavier load bursts than ever before, with no compromise to performance.
"In addition to the HA capabilities, Artifactory 3.1 introduces several key updates, including a new API for per-file download statistics and improved Black Duck Code Center integration for open source governance," said Shlomi Ben-Haim, CEO and co-founder of JFrog.
"Artifactory is already part of our customers' production environments, and this is huge news for companies that can't afford to suffer server downtime and costly service disruptions. Users can perform more efficiently, even at high loads, and the clustered servers ensure builds and production deployments won't fail," added Ben-Haim.
