Artifactory acts as a proxy between your build tool (Maven, Ant, Ivy, Gradle etc.) and the outside world.
It caches remote artifacts so that you don't have to download them over and over again.
It blocks unwanted (and sometimes security-sensitive) external requests for internal artifacts and controls how and where artifacts are deployed, and by whom.
Built on top of the Java Content Repository (JCR), Artifactory supports extremely high concurrency and offers unmatched data integrity.
The underlying, backup-ready storage supports Artifactory's OpenMetadata(TM) technology, allowing every repository item to be attached with searchable XML metadata and user-defined properties.
Built on top of the Java Content Repository (JCR), Artifactory offers higher concurrency and unmatched data integrity. When run on top of MySQL Artifactory can support an amazingly high volume of concurrent downloads and deployments.
