Why Dist?

Reliable
Reliable
Designed for high availability

Eliminate development and deployment pipeline failures due to unreliable artifact repositories.

Dist has been designed to be highly available with built in redundancy and automated recovery wherever possible. We've made Dist to be simple to operate for us in order to maximise reliability for you, our users.

Fast
Built for speed

Tired of choosing between regions because your developers are in London, Sydney, and Tokyo but your production systems are in the US? We've got you covered.

Tired of US-centric services? Dist is built by Aussies with geography and latency in mind.

Our purpose built CDN is optimised for storage and delivery of software artifacts, delivering maximum performance no matter where your developers or systems are. No knobs to tweak, no choosing which regions you want to replicate to, it's all automatic.

Fast
Secure
Secure
Simple and secure

Simple role-based access control provides the appropriate level of access to your artifact repositories. We provide just enough granularity to allow for least privilege whilst minimising the possibilities for misconfiguration that could result in unwanted exposure. And all data is encrypted at rest and in transit.

We only support private artifact repositories. Be confident that your artifacts won't accidentally become public.

Relax
Focus on the stuff that matters

You could DIY. It always sounds simple, maybe even fun. It'll just take an afternoon! A month later you realise you need to apply updates... every month. You go on holidays and the DIY solution fails, breaking your company's deployment pipeline until someone else can engage in engineering heroics to bring it back online. Six months later you learn the hard way that you should have had backups. Oops.

Let us take care of these mundane (but critical!) operations so you can focus on the features that your users care about.

* Our view is that the traditional resource based billing model based on storage and bytes transferred discourages developers from using repositories to their maximum potential. It forces you to think about how much each build or deployment is going to cost when you could instead be focusing on the features and services that your customers care about.

Our goal with Dist is to provide repositories that are user friendly. We are seeking to offer a flat rate per user with enough storage and bandwidth included that most users will never have to worry about overage charges. During our open beta we seek to understand how you, our users, would derive maximum value from our service and develop a sustainable pricing model to suit. We currently envisage that our per user price would be under $20/user/month.

About Us

Stephen Haynes

Stephen has worked at Yahoo!7, AARNet and the University of Wollongong in service engineering & system administration roles. He has spent over two decades understanding and working with programming language and operating system package managers and formats. After dealing with package management he still had some spare time to help build and operate highly available and performant Internet facing services.

Yun Huang Yong

Yun began his career at Yahoo! Australia & NZ as a developer, building and supporting content-driven sites such as News, Sports, Finance, and Australian Idol. Over time his role grew to managing teams responsible for platform engineering, security, and service engineering. Yun has done his time carrying pagers (the old one-way radio ones!) and having worked on prominent high traffic sites, performance, availability and security are always front of mind.
