Companies like MindBody, Stanford, and GoodRx switch to CloudRepo because it's easy to manage, has strong customer support, and it's affordable

We use CloudRepo because we needed a closed source Maven Repository that could be easily managed to provide/restrict access to our clients, didn't cost the world to use, and that wouldn't require significant effort to set up/maintain.
We needed a place to host our Python libraries privately. Since our libraries are big, most of the private repositories were not usable. CloudRepo was one of the only solutions without a download cap. We have several clients already implementing the Python SDK via the CloudRepo repository.

Choose CloudRepo as an Artifactory alternative if you need...

High Availability

Artifactory was initially designed to run in a single server configuration. High Availability was an after thought that was added to Artifactory later, and with expensive licensing costs.

Data Redundancy

Artifactory itself, by default, stores your data in a non-redundant manner on a single hard disk. While you can configure Artifactory's storage mechanism to be redundant, CloudRepo does this out of the box, with data stored in several locations without any time required from your team.

Automatic Scalability

Artifactory was originally built to run on a single server. Replicas were added later on, but that just increases the load on your team to set up even more servers and make sure they're all playing nicely together.

CloudRepo has never run on a single server, and is distributed across many different servers within the Cloud.

Disaster Recovery

With Artifactory, when a disaster happens, there is no default story for disaster recovery. Instead, your team has to fully manage backups and data recovery in the case of a disaster.

Being a fully cloud-based Artifactory alternative, CloudRepo stores its data in multiple availability zones so that if one zone is lost, data can quickly be replicated and restored to its full level of redundancy.

Migration FAQs

It looks like CloudRepo says it offers a managed service but doesn't Artifactory have that too?

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 vendor?

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.
