What Is an Artifact Repository?
Artifacts are large binary packages that are created throughout the development and release process. An artifact repository is a software application designed to manage these artifacts. Using an artifact repository provides consistency to your Continuous Integration/Continuous Development (CI/CD) workflow. It saves teams time and increases build performance.
Why You Need an Artifact Repository
Artifact repositories have become essential for rapid releases. Being able to manage binary artifacts allows your team to more easily identify and incorporate the correct versions of artifacts into their work. Without it, you can easily lose the gains provided by your DevOps investment.

Storing Artifacts Alongside Source Code
Like many AAA game dev studios, IO Interactive stores binary files and source code together in Helix Core. Keeping their binaries in the same repo as the source code made the workflows easier and less expensive.
Before they used Helix Core as an artifact repository, IO Interactive used a digital asset manager (or DAM). When it was time for releases, it was difficult to match the correct versions of source code from the VCS with the correct version of the artifacts. Now, with Helix Core, artifacts are submitted in the same changelist as the corresponding source code, so it’s easier to know what belongs together.
