JFrog Artifactory with Amazon EKS on AWS

Universal artifact repository manager

This Quick Start deploys JFrog Artifactory in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. JFrog Artifactory is an enterprise universal artifact repository manager, capable of hosting all your binaries on AWS resources.

This Quick Start is for administrators who want the flexibility, scale, and availability of AWS through products such as virtual private clouds (VPCs), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) to deploy Artifactory as their repository manager.

  •  What you'll build
  • Use this Quick Start to automatically set up JFrog Artifactory on AWS. The deployment includes the following:

    • A highly available architecture that spans three Availability Zones.*
    • A VPC configured with public and private subnets according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS.*
    • In the public subnets:
      • Managed network address translation (NAT) gateways to allow outbound internet access for resources in the private subnets.*
      • A Linux bastion host in an Auto Scaling group to allow inbound Secure Shell (SSH) access to EC2 instances in public and private subnets.*
    • A Network Load Balancer (NLB) attached to the public subnets. The load balancer listens on port 443 and directs traffic via port 443 to the NGINX pod configured as a Kubernetes object. The NGINX pod provides ingress, reverse proxy, and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) termination for the Artifactory primary and secondary nodes.
    • In the private subnets:
      • An Amazon RDS instance connected via the private subnets of the VPC and accessible only from those subnets on port 3306.
      • An Amazon EKS cluster with two partitions.
      • A Helm deployment responsible for managing your Kubernetes deployment.
    • A private and encrypted Amazon S3 bucket for repository storage.

    *  The template that deploys the Quick Start into an existing VPC skips the components marked by asterisks and prompts you for your existing VPC configuration.

  •  How to deploy
  • To deploy JFrog Artifactory on AWS in about 45 minutes, follow the instructions in the deployment guide. The deployment process includes these steps:

    2. Sign up for the Free Trial license.
    3. Launch the Quick Start. You can choose from the following two options:
    4. Set up Artifactory.

    Amazon may share user-deployment information with the AWS Partner that collaborated with AWS on the Quick Start.  

  •  Cost and licenses
  • You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services used while running this Quick Start reference deployment. There is no additional cost for using the Quick Start.

    The AWS CloudFormation template for this Quick Start includes configuration parameters that you can customize. Some of these settings, such as instance type, will affect the cost of deployment. For cost estimates, see the pricing pages for each AWS service you will be using. Prices are subject to change.

    Tip   After you deploy the Quick Start, we recommend that you enable the AWS Cost and Usage Report to track costs associated with the Quick Start. This report delivers billing metrics to an S3 bucket in your account. It provides cost estimates based on usage throughout each month, and finalizes the data at the end of the month. For more information about the report, see the AWS documentation.

    This Quick Start requires an Enterprise or Enterprise+ license for Artifactory. To use the Quick Start in your production environment, you can sign up for a Free Trial license, which includes three Artifactory Enterprise licenses. You’ll need to place the license keys in the specified fields when you launch the Quick Start.
