These days, organizations of all types, sizes and industries are using the cloud for a wide variety of business reasons and use cases. Benefits include agility, elasticity, cost savings, ease of deployment, ease of management, ease of procurement and ability to leverage cutting edge technologies. JFrog customers are no different. Indeed, JFrog recognizes that many customers want a hybrid cloud approach with the ability to work across multi-clouds.
The technology ecosystem is continually evolving but one truth remains, if there is a new and emerging coding language that captures the heart and minds of developers JFrog will be there. JFrog provides a DevOps Platform to store and secure its artifacts while engaging with the community and foundations that support developers using that language. We have a long history of working with Java, Python, C/C++ and more recently Go, Swift and Rust.
Code that an organization’s developers create is only the beginning of modern software development. In fact, first-party code is likely to be only a small proportion of an application – sometimes as little as 10% of the application’s artifact ecosystem. An enterprise’s software supply chain is made of many parts, from many sources: open source packages, commercial software, infrastructure-as-code (IaC) files, and more.
If you’re reading this blog you’re probably at least somewhat familiar with Hashicorp Terraform and the value it brings to managing the deployment and provisioning of infrastructure resources at scale. We’re big fans and users of it ourselves here at JFrog (see how in our recent webinar!).
In every workplace, most work gets done at the most cluttered desks. Yet the business also requires an orderly front office to run efficiently. It’s much the same with your DevOps pipeline environments, as the rough and tumble process of innovating code must ultimately produce cleanly released applications. Continuous integration means that developers perform many builds each day, but few of those builds will advance to production repositories.
