Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], July 1 (ANI/BusinessWire India): JFrog, the Universal DevOps technology leader known for enabling liquid software via continuous update flows, has unveiled new capabilities to address the growing problem of software distribution bottlenecks. The newly introduced CDN-based and Peer-to-Peer software package distribution mechanisms empower companies to overcome the challenge of frequently delivering large volumes of artifacts to internal teams and external clients. The announcements took place at JFrog's annual swampUP user conference. The explosion of both hybrid and edge infrastructure, and the increased adoption of cloud-native apps that rely on compounded artifacts can create a "firehose" distribution problem, increasingly clogging networks with a stream of software updates.

Distribution challenges will continue to grow, with IDC predicting there will be more than 520 million brand new digital apps and services added by 2024.1 Peer-to-Peer and Cloud-Based Distribution Enable Digital-First Economy Unveiling the new Peer-to-Peer artifact download capability, JFrog is serving companies that need to distribute coordinated software updates for hundreds and thousands of connected machines that are updated in parallel but cannot sacrifice speed and security. By breaking the artifact down into smaller pieces and allowing those pieces to be shared between peers on the same network, JFrog can accelerate download speeds by orders of magnitude and increase resilience by expanding beyond a single point of failure. JFrog has also delivered a new CDN-based package distribution function that solves the challenge of distributing software to large communities of external users or partners. This mechanism works in cases where companies need a simple, SaaS-managed solution to enable external downloads, such as distributing software that can be downloaded by anyone including drivers, plugins, and commercial software products, or updates for partners and users. "DevOps in a digital-first economy demands the need for speed and security throughout the entire software release cycle all the way to the edge. We provided our community with the first purely hybrid, end-to-end DevOps and DevSecOps platform, and now we're extending all the way to EdgeOps," said Shlomi Ben Haim, co-founder, and CEO of JFrog. Kavita Viswanath, General Manager JFrog India said, "Major enterprises are facing a clear challenge in distributing packages quickly and fearlessly across their organizations, as well as to clients and partners. The DevOps revolution will not be completed without providing a comprehensive, powerful binary distribution mechanism; this is our commitment to developers, and it is developers' responsibility to their organizations." New Upgrades Streamline Pipeline Assembly and Build Testing In a massive upgrade to their Binary Operations (or "BinOps") toolset, JFrog has also announced new features for its JFrog Pipelines solution that encompasses continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD). JFrog has expanded on its existing selection of pre-built common functions, known as "Native Steps," by allowing users to build their own library of reusable pipeline steps via an Extensions Development Kit (EDK).

Now DevOps teams can encapsulate frequent and common actions in their pipelines, offering a much simpler solution than traditional approaches which often involve plugins that conflict with each other, creating a "plugin hell" for users. Extensions can be run in parallel, allowing pipelines to run with multiple extension versions simultaneously. "As the world continues to move towards massive delivery of software, the 'BinOps' path of managing your software releases becomes more critical than ever," said Yoav Landman, CTO, and co-founder of JFrog. "Shifting binaries to the left and using immutable release binaries as early as possible in the software delivery pipeline is the only way to achieve robust, trusted, and secure releases and maintain stable metadata that relates to these releases. We are proud to lead the way of BinOps with the JFrog Platform." The First Free, Security-Focused Central Repository of Helm Charts Is Now Available for the Community Lastly, JFrog has added to their portfolio of public artifact centers with a fresh offering focused on managing the increasing volume of microservices-based and containerized applications.

Dubbed "ChartCenter," the free service from JFrog will provide immutable Helm Chart management for developers, who face increasing complexity in managing Helm, Docker and Kubernetes deployments as they grow in the enterprise. The all-new, free ChartCenter is available at https://chartcenter.io/. This story is provided by BusinessWire India. ANI will not be responsible in any way for the content of this article.
