After have strengthened in security with the takeover of Vdoo in June , the publisher JFrog is now completing its devops solution on IoT deployments with the acquisition of Upswift for an undisclosed amount. Co-founded in 2008 in Israel, today based in Sunnyvale, California and also established in France, JFrog presents itself as the "devops database", used by more than 5,000 customers including Netflix, Spotify, Google, Cisco, AWS, Facebook, Workday, Slack ... Its Artifactory platform allows you to manage all the software components necessary for updating applications in a continuous and fluid mode (hence the nickname Liquid software company that l 'editor gave himself).
With Upswift.io, a company basedin Israel (in Tev Aviv), JFrog acquires a cloud solution for maintaining and updating OTA (over-the-air) remote Linux and IoT equipment. Remote monitoring of connected equipment fleets is starting to become a headache for businesses. According to Yoav Landman, CTO of JFrog and co-founder of the company with Shlomi Ben Haim, CEO, most of the software update solutions used for IoT are developed in-house by companies. They are "specialized and isolated from the modern CI / CD and DevOps lifecycle," he explains in a press release. "At the same time, most current devops solutions are not built to deliver and deploy software updates to edge devices, nor to manage them on an ongoing basis." For the CTO, the advantage of Upswift’s technology is that it is developer-centric and can easily be integrated into their current ecosystems and automation workflows.devops, which makes it easy to update software on IoT hardware.
Full visibility into the devops pipeline
Previously used for cloud and on-premise environments, JFrog's Artefactory platform includes dependency research, CI / CD, software artifact management, early detection of problems in the application delivery process and software distribution. With the takeover of ' Upswift, it extends its capacities for automating updates of files and containers on a fleet of distributed equipment, with in particular remote control capacities of IoT devices (real-time status, operation, applications). This includes direct access to the equipment from a browser or API. The integrated platform will provide full visibility into package deliveriess software across the entire devops pipeline, including deployments and incremental updates.
