Fast & Secure

Container registries for every purpose.

Whether you're sharing Docker container images for internal development and deployment, or publishing container images for your customers or end-users, Dist has you covered.

Private Repositories

Enhance development and deployment within your organization. Share privately with role-based access control and access tokens.

Protected Repositories

Safely share container images with your customers using distribution keys. Distribution keys can not access private repositories.

Public Repositories

Hello, world! Share your software widely and easily with native tool support and great performance globally.

Native tool support

Works directly with Docker V2/OCI Registry compatible tools (Docker, Kubernetes, etc).

Always fast

Our purpose-built edge network ensures optimal performance, wherever your team and customers are.

Cloud native

Dist is fully managed in the cloud. We take care of operations, maintenance, and backups so you can focus on your business.

Seamless integration with your existing tools and processes

JetBrains Eclipse Visual Studio Code CLI
Jenkins GitHub GitLab CircleCI
Docker Kubernetes Open Container Initiative
Amazon Web Services Microsoft Azure Google Cloud DigitalOcean

Dist speaks native protocols and will work with most tools and processes without need for complex configuration or maintenance.

Fast container image upload and download

A purpose-built edge network is used for container image uploads and downloads to optimize for development and deployment speed. No fiddly replication configuration required.

Fully managed and reliable

No software to install and maintain. Hosted on highly available systems.

Role-based access control

Provide an appropriate level of access for internal users or groups to your container images.

Access tokens

Generate access tokens that are used by tools to access your container registry. Access tokens can be scoped to a subset of a user's permissions or repositories.

Distribution keys

Grant your customers read-only access to your protected repositories. Distribution keys can not access your private Maven repositories.

Encryption at rest and in transit

All container images and their associated metadata are encrypted at rest, including those stored on edge network nodes. Transport Layer Security (TLS) is enforced for all website, API and repository access.

Maven repositories

Push and pull Maven artifacts with speed and simplicity. Maven repository support is included at no extra cost.

Please see the documentation for additional information.

Pain-free sharing and distribution

Push and pull container images with minimum effort. Simplicity and reliability are our primary goals which is why Dist is a fully managed service. Our repositories do what you need without getting in your way and we take care of keeping everything running so you can focus on your business and project goals.


Repositories you can rely on

We apply decades of experience operating high traffic services to provide repositories you can rely on, and when you need assistance get help directly from our experienced engineers. We use a highly available architecture with layers of backups for disaster recovery. All container images, and their associated metadata are encrypted at rest and in transit.


Develop and deploy faster with our global network

Use a single global hostname or URL across all of your configurations, powered by our purpose-built edge network. Save time and avoid configuration and replication headaches.

Secure your workflow with role-based access control

Restrict access to repositories by users and groups. Our simple groups support allows you to easily manage and authorize access for teams. Once authorized, each user can further compartmentalize their own access using access tokens.

Access control

Fine-tune repository access with access tokens

Avoid embedding passwords or cumbersome credential helpers. Access tokens can be revoked at any time and are unique to each user, inheriting their repository roles and associated permissions. Each access token is also scoped, allowing its effective roles and permissions to be further restricted.

Access control

Control distribution with protected repositories

Protected repositories store artifacts intended for distribution to your customers. Access is controlled by read-only distribution keys which are not able to access private repositories, protecting you from accidental exposure of internal assets.

Distribution keys

Hi, we’re Stephen & Yun.

We believe all developers can benefit hugely from using repositories if they have a good repository manager to use.

Dist strives to be the repository manager that just works. The repository manager you can start pushing to with minimum effort. It should do what you need without requiring hours of configuration or deep thought about trade-offs, whilst still being reliable, secure, and fast.
