Bamboo artifact sharing vs checking them into Version Control

We normally take our builds and resulting website binaries and check them into SVN for later use.  This allows us to get back to a previous build if the current one is bad.   If the current build is 2.00.05 and is bad for whatever reason, I can go back and deploy 2.00.04 because it exists in our SVN artifactory.

WIth bamboo artifacts, how does this compare?  How long do these artifacts remain and can you reference and older artifact just before the current produced artifact?


I am trying to figure out if its better for us to store artifacts (website builds - deployable packages, etc) in SVN or to use the bamboo artifact sharing.   With SVN I can go easily back to the previous one.


Any thoughts on this?

The "proper" way to do things to send your artifacts to Artifactory or Nexus. These are the applications that handle dependencies and should be used as such.

Am I able to store an entire website as a folder in artifactory or Nexus like


websiteA-           (folder containing a bunch of files)

websiteA-                                "

websiteB-                                "

Probably not folders but a zip would work. Up to you to set up your build / test / release process works in your environment and organization.

Use bamboo artifacts if it's ok to you to keep last N builds. Otherwise consider another artifact storage (svn, ftp, maven repo, etc).
