• Git lfs is just support for large files in Git -> good for example for a video file sample if you need it, right?
  • But, if you have large artifacts like a trained model or an uber-jar or some other artifact, what is the benefit to version this binary in git?

What is Git-LFS?

Git Large File Storage (LFS) prevents that large files need to be stored in git itself.


Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server like GitHub.com or GitHub Enterprise.

What is artifactory?

Artifactory stores artifacts, e.g. docker images, jars, wars

Artifactory vs. Git-lfs

Artifactory is used to store artifacts while git-lfs is used to prevent that large files are stored in git. If one will store large files in git and one would like to clone this repository it will take a decade before it is cloned.
