Fast, simple control over who downloads your software assets

Control who has read-only access to your package repositories through entitlement tokens generated within Cloudsmith. Whether you're automating server or application installs, or you're building a license-only software distribution, entitlement tokens get the job done.

  • Limit what access an entitlement has by search, or limit how long a token is valid for by time

  • Dynamically create tokens via the API based on customer needs

Ultra-fast package distribution

Cloudsmith operates across a global content delivery network optimized to ensure lightning fast delivery - to anywhere. Specify exactly where your packages are stored, and configure edge caching to bring packages as close to your customers as possible.

  • Custom storage: choose where in the world your packages are stored for legal or performance reasons

  • Edge caching delivers better throughput, reduced latency, high availability

Manage licensing agreements

For vendors: Cloudsmith can ensure users have agreed to your custom End-User License Agreement (EULA) before they can download your packages. Especially useful if you want to disclaim warranties prior to usage.

We were in a pinch: our customers were justifiably angry with us because the service we were managing was unreliable. But with Cloudsmith we were able to seamlessly transition to their platform and immediately provide a rock-solid upgrade to every customer we have.
