Situated between the repository and user nodes of the CI/DC pipeline, JFrog’s Bintray is a universal distribution system. Bintray supports all major package formats, including Docker images, NPM, Vagrant and more. This allows Bintray to maintain repositories in the native format and indexes them to generate the associated metadata for distributing to any intended device or environment type.
Bintray features include:
- Powerful permissions and access control engine that restricts access via geolocation, IP address, organizational roles, team memberships or time-limited downloads using signed URLs
- A globally deployed CDN (Content Delivery Network) that ensures scalability and service uptime
- Automation via a richly featured Rest API to manage every aspect of your distribution processes
- Insights in the form of access analytics, user logs, and download statistics in different report formats
When you integrate Bintray with Artifactory, you can create simple sets of rules that define how you upload and distribute packages to end users and devices. Combining these two products, you can automate the entire continuous delivery pipeline.
