JFrog Unveils Industry's 1st Social Software Distribution Platform

Bintray Speeds and Improves Development by Eliminating the Pain of Software Delivery

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- JFrog (www.jfrog.com), the company that's revolutionizing the way software is built, announced today the availability of Bintray, the industry's first social platform for storage and distribution of software libraries. Bintray is the new way for developers to publish, download and share software across one unified community around the world. The free, cloud-based platform empowers developers to control and streamline the entire process of making software libraries publicly available, with all the services needed to collaborate, advertise and deploy a new software solution.

"Created by developers, for developers to ease the pain of the software distribution process, Bintray is the holy grail that has been missing from the software lifecycle," said Yoav Landman, Chief Technology Officer at JFrog. "For the first time, we have an open, interactive platform that strengthens the relationship between the software publisher and the consumer community and amplifies the developer identity."

Key benefits of the public beta include:

  • Support for Major Repository Formats: Yum, Debian and Apache Maven are all supported out of the gate, and JFrog will continue expanding its network of supported software library types.
  • Community Wisdom: Bintray makes peer experiences and tips, consumer feedback, statistics and rankings easily obtainable.
  • Easy to Use User Interface: Open and interactive, Bintray leverages user libraries that can be stocked with binary downloads, followed by other users and shared within the community.
  • Lightning Fast Content Delivery Network (CDN): The platform is highly available and optimized to deliver high-performance downloads.

"In today's world, no one consumes anything without listening to the community voice first, and the same goes for developers," said Shlomi Ben Haim, CEO of JFrog. "Bintray is the first platform that offers a social hub to host and distribute binaries, and it is JFrog's natural next step in revolutionizing the way binaries are consumed and distributed. With JFrog 's first product Artifactory, we've changed the way binaries are sourced and managed; now we're improving the way they are published. Not only will this community vehicle improve the distribution of software packages, it will also improve the distribution of information. We are living in a 'crowd-era' and the time has come for developers to have a voice!"

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
