In DevOps, Continuous Integration led to Continuous Delivery with the logical step being Continuous Updates. (i.e: constant software updates without our involvement) We call this next evolution “Liquid Software.” Liquid Software allows developers to code high quality applications, control the security and flow of binaries, and deploy to end-users with zero downtime. JFrog Enterprise+ is the manifestation of the Liquid Software vision. Powered by the JFrog product suite (JFrog Artifactory, JFrog Xray, Mission Control & Insight); Enterprise+ offers new elements while working in conjunction with source version control, continuous integration, and deployment tools. Enterprise+ overcomes 5 main obstacles: Flexibility to assemble any collection of artifacts in an immutable archive that can be securely delivered by JFrog Distribution from one Artifactory instance to another. Quick, easy and fully-automated distribution of secure and immutable software updates to any number of worldwide locations with an extensive REST API. Affordability by maintaining the functionality needed to receive software updates to edge services and devices - but no more. Out-of-the-box “circles-of-trust” where all security entities involved in permissions and access control are automatically shared and synchronized, fully controlled, between designated Artifactory services in the enterprise. Resolving network latency and low bandwidth via JFrog Replicator, which breaks up the data needed to synchronize into multiple streams, maximizing its use of the network, and JFrog Distribution, which verifies that the target Artifactory service receives each release bundle in its entirety. Since Release in May 2018, we have achieved millions in sales revenue and rapid adoption among dozens of high-profile customers in Banking, Finance, DevOps and Multimedia.
