Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast: Episode 51 – Artifact Repository

Artifact Repositories and Continuous Delivery Pipelines

This morning on #c9d9 we discussed how your Artifact Repository comes into play in your DevOps and software release processes.

Versioning everything is an important prerequisite – and a predictor – for your DevOps success and IT performance. Versioning is crucial both forsource code, for binaries, and for your processes.

The State of the DevOps Reports have consistently shown that version control is one of the top two predictors of deployment lead time, deployment frequency and MTTR, as well as high job satisfaction. Interestingly, version control ofproduction artifact is even a higher predictor than version control of source code – as it stores all production configuration as well as the verified builds and all dependencies. This allows Dev and Ops to easily reproduce on-demand all artifacts and environments throughout the pipeline stages, to achieve consistent deployments.

Like your delivery pipeline, Artifact Repositories span all the way from CI through to Production Release – connecting Dev, with Ops, with everything in between.

On the podcast, we discussed some of the challenges with managing binaries for large-scale releases and DevOps processes, and some best practices for optimizing your Repos to support CD pipelines, automated deployment and enterprise work-loads.
