Sonatype Nexus Lifecycle Pricing and License Cost

Ricardo Van Den Broek

In addition to the license fee for IQ Server, you have to factor in some running costs. We use AWS, so we spun up an additional VM to run this. If the database is RDS that adds a little bit extra too. Of course someone could run it on a pre-existing VM or physical server to reduce costs. I should add that compared to the license fee, the running costs are so minimal they had no effect on our decision to use IQ Server. The license fee may be a bit harder for startups to justify. But it will save you a headache later as well as peace of mind. Additionally, it shows your own customers that you value security stuff and will protect yourselves from any licensing issues, which is good marketing too. View full review »

I'm not involved in the financial aspects, but I don't think it's overly expensive. We use the professional version. There's an open-source version that would cost us next to nothing, but we do use the professional version. View full review »

Our licensing is bundled. We pay a single licensing cost for both Nexus OSS and Nexus Lifecycle together. So I'm not sure what the individual costs would be. We bought both Nexus Repo - we're using Nexus 2.0 and Nexus 3.0 - and Nexus Lifecycle. View full review »

I don't know anything about the pricing. I know that our license is the most encompassing one you can get. It includes the IQ server (Lifecyle, Firewall) and the Repository Manager Pro. Firewall is really useful for us to keep an eye on our proxy repositories for vulnerabilities. That's another layer of helping us make sure that we don't have vulnerable products. The expense is justifiable because of the potential to save a company a lot of money in lawsuits and risks from having vulnerable packages in their applications. View full review »

Pricing is decent. It's not horrible. It's middle-of-the-road, as far as our ranking goes. They're a little bit more but that's also because they provide more. They put more manpower and time into their research - the details on their findings and the way they bring those to the surface. They offer some more features that others don't have, so I understand why it's a little bit more. They were pretty good with us on pricing, working through it. View full review »

IT Security Manager at a insurance company with 5,001-10,000 employees
The price is good. We certainly get a lot more in return. However, it's also hard to get the funds to roll out such a product for the entire firm. Therefore, pricing has been a limiting factor for us. However, it's a fair price, and I'm confident that we can sell this story appropriately. View full review »
