It looks like CloudRepo says it offers a managed service but doesn't Artifactory have that
Artifactory was built to run on-premises. In moving to the cloud, they're basically hosting a version in a server for you. So your traffic will go to one or more servers that your data is stored on.
CloudRepo was built intentionally for the cloud, so all of our servers can be used to retrieve your artifacts. This gives us an availability edge and explains why Artifactory customers tend to experience partial outages. Artifactory in the cloud is essentially what you would get by running it locally, except they host it for you on a cloud server.
Does CloudRepo have their own cloud servers? Whereas Artifactory has to rent space in a cloud
CloudRepo runs across a cluster of stateless servers, meaning any one server can serve all of our partners. We also rent space in a cloud vendor (AWS), so we still remain available, even if we were to lose half of our servers.
For comparison, in Artifactory, if your data happens to be on a server that's down, then your data is unavailable.Additionally, we store all data in S3, which is highly available. Artifactory only lets you store in S3 if you pay for an Enterprise license.
