Binary repositories data


A binary repository is a tool for downloading and storing of binary files used and created in software development. It’s used to store software binary packages, artifacts, and their corresponding metadata. They’re different than source code repositories, as binary repositories do not store source files. Searching through these repositories is possible by analyzing associated metadata. Binary repository data helps application delivery teams and release managers to ensure that the final deployment of code to production is successful.
