Pro Unlimited amount of private repositories
The only provider providing this option in the basic plan.
Con Biggest CON there is that it cannot control deleting of images properly
Bottom line is this makes docker registry suck when your harddisk fills up at the wrong time and you cannot push out your builds!

Authentication or Authorization is not provided by default and needs to be handled externally. An optional authentication should have been provided, given that docker client has inbuilt authentication.
Con Only supports docker images
Con Sometimes images disappear
Con Setting it up may require some work
Setting up the new Docker Registry 2.0 requires some more setup than usual. Especially dependencies need to be installed beforehand.
