JFrog Artifactory and JFrog Xray with Amazon EKS

Universal artifact repository manager on AWS managed Kubernetes

This Partner Solution deploys JFrog Artifactory and JFrog Xray with Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. It is for organizations that want to deploy JFrog as their Kubernetes registry without having to install and operate the Kubernetes control plane.

This Partner Solution was developed by JFrog and Trace3 in collaboration with AWS. JFrog and Trace3 are AWS Partners.

  •  What you'll build
  • This Partner Solution sets up 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 attached to the public subnets. The load balancer directs traffic to the NGINX pod configured as a Kubernetes object. The NGINX container provides ingress, reverse proxy, and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) termination for the Artifactory primary and secondary pods.
    • In the private subnets:
      • In the first Availability Zone, a primary Amazon EKS node with NGINX and Artifactory pods in an Auto Scaling group.
      • In the second and third Availability Zones, a secondary Amazon EKS node with NGINX, Artifactory, and Xray pods, in an Auto Scaling group.
      • An Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) DB instance accessible only from the private subnets.
    • A private and encrypted Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket for repository storage.
    • Amazon EKS for the cluster to run NGINX, Artifactory, and Xray containerized applications.

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

    You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services and any third-party licenses used while running this solution. There is no additional cost for using the solution.

    This solution includes configuration parameters that you can customize. Some of these settings, such as instance type, affect the cost of deployment. For cost estimates, refer to the pricing pages for each AWS service you use. Prices are subject to change.

    Tip: After you deploy a solution, create AWS Cost and Usage Reports to track associated costs. These reports deliver billing metrics to an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket in your account. They provide cost estimates based on usage throughout each month and aggregate the data at the end of the month. For more information, refer to What are AWS Cost and Usage Reports?
