Repository Management

  • A proxy for remote repositories which caches artifacts saving both bandwidth and time required to retrieve a software artifact from a remote repository, and
  • A host for internal artifacts providing an organization with a deployment target for software artifacts.

Snippet from Wikipedia: Software repository

A software repository, or “repo” for short, is a storage location for software packages. Often a table of contents is also stored, along with metadata. A software repository is typically managed by source control or repository managers. Package Managers allow for installing and updating the repositories (sometimes called “packages”) versus having to do this manually.
