What Is an Artifact Repository & Manager?
Artifacts are packages that are created throughout the development and release process. An artifact repository is a software application designed to store these artifacts, and an artifact manager helps your team interact with the packages. Using an artifact repository & manager 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 & Manager
An artifact repository & manager is essential for rapid releases and tighter security. Being able to manage binary artifacts makes it easier to identify and incorporate the correct versions of them. Without an artifact repository or artifact management, 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.
Revolutionize Artifact Management
Helix Core with Helix Artifacts delivers high-performance, enterprise-grade version control + artifact management. Instead of managing source code and artifacts in separate systems, get the benefits of VCS and an artifact repository manager in a single platform.
