Freedom of choice can make choosing harder. Since a JFrog cloud (SaaS) account provides the same functionality as a self-hosted JFrog Software Supply Chain Platform how will you decide which is right for you? Choice without tradeoffs is one of the key ways JFrog enables you to be cloud-nimble, and run the mission-critical heart of your DevSecOps process wherever you need it to be — in any cloud, public or private, as SaaS, BYOL, or on-prem. So how will you decide?
To recap from our first blog post, JFrog Workers is a service in the JFrog Platform that provides a serverless execution environment, similar to AWS Lambda services. The Workers Service is similar to the user plugins available in JFrog self-hosted, and can be used to perform tasks that extend the capabilities of the JFrog Platform according to your requirements.

Great news for developers who leverage containers — JFrog has expanded its support for the OCI Container standard with dedicated OCI repositories! Before we touch on that, let’s do a quick recap on OCI containers for those unfamiliar with them outside the context of Docker.
To no one’s surprise, cloud adoption continues to be a focus for organizations of all sizes and verticals. However, for those who are used to the flexibility and adaptability that comes with customizing self-hosted software, moving to a SaaS offering and losing some of that customization can be a deal breaker. At JFrog, giving developers the freedom – and flexibility – to work however they want to has always been a central tenet to our offering.
Software development begins with code, which is then integrated, compiled, tested, and in the end distributed to users. This is often the secret sauce of innovation that organizations must protect to keep their competitive edge. With the software application development market growing at almost 30% per year and the average project taking just 4-6 months to complete – and trending downwards – the result is more software to develop and constant pressure to release it as fast as possible.
