Just Better Distribution
Pushing your packages to Cloudsmith makes them available at
local-rate latency across the entire world, powered by our
blazing-fast Content Distribution Network (CDN). Not everyone is
latency or throughput sensitive, but no-one appreciates slow or
unreliable downloads and installations, including your customers
and even your servers. All of our uploads are also provided with
transfer acceleration to give you the best throughput possible.
Packages can be managed within public repositories or private
repositories. If you only need to distribute your packages to
the world as fast as possible, you're covered by a public
repository. If you need to distribute your packages to internal
servers, applications or developers/users, or if you need to use
our entitlements feature to support license-based distribution,
then private repositories are what you need.
Track Your Packages
Your postage carrier can provide tracking for packages, so why can't
your package management service? Cloudsmith offers detailed access
logs and statistics for all package uploads and downloads, including
geographic information on package consumers. We use this information
internally for metering, but you can also use it for your own metering
or monitoring purposes. The logs and statistics API will also be
offered to provide programmatic access (coming soon).
