Hi there, Stephen and Yun here, the founders of Dist.

We started Dist with the goal of providing highly reliable, fast, and easy to use artifact repositories at an affordable price so that all developers could benefit from using artifact repositories in their workflow.

Thank you so much for your feedback and support, and we are glad that Dist has been useful to you.

Unfortunately, we have been unable to scale the business to a sustainable level and it is with a heavy heart that we announce today that we will be shutting down Dist on 31 March 2022.

What this means:

  • At 12:01am, 31 March 2022 UTC, the Dist service will be turned off (convert to local time).
  • After that time, your organization and its associated repositories will no longer be available, and all of your data will be deleted shortly after.
  • Your repositories and artifacts will continue to be available until 31 March 2022.
  • Beginning with your next invoice, we will no longer charge you for your service.

What you should do:

  • Migrate your repositories, artifacts and images to another service as soon as possible.
  • Once you have migrated away from Dist, you may wish to cancel your Dist account to avoid the series of reminder emails that we will be sending prior to 31 March.

Thank you again for your support. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
