Sonatype Nexus Lifecycle Scalability

EdwinKwan
Security Team Lead at Tyro Payments Limited
Scalability is not an issue. We have a microservices architecture and we've got about 150 applications in there and we scan them quite regularly. When we first started, we had a lot fewer applications, we were sending about five gigs of scanning data requests to the Sonatype servers every day. They were able to handle that. We had issues before, but I think they were more networking configuration issues, and they could have been on our side. But that has all been resolved and there are no issues. View full review »

We haven't had an instance where we have run into such high volume that we needed to scale. The only change we made was to increase memory, because we started utilizing the API. In terms of redundancy, all the data is sitting in the database. We have backed up the folder structure, and the worst case is we just restore that folder structure onto any server. You could run it in Docker if you wanted to, as well so that is immutable. It's been made to be a lift-and-shift type of product. We have 100 users actively using it at the moment. They are developers, mostly. View full review »

The scalability is good but it can be improved. I think they're working on it, but it needs to be clusterable. The best case is to have a cluster, a native cluster, for IQ Server, to improve the availability. View full review »

They're really good with scalability. We have an implementation that spans production use plus a disaster recovery area. The synchronization between those two and the high-availability are awesome. We're at 100 or 150 licenses, maybe more. Developers are the main role as well as DevOps. The plan is to use it across every single application where we do development. We have a lot of applications, on the order of 500. We have plans to expand usage, as far as the user base and the number of teams utilizing it go. View full review »

We haven't scaled it because we just had this one server running. We have not had a reason to scale it as of yet. We have 10 people who can use it, and they are developers in DevOps. We started off using Nexus IQ very sporadically on an ad hoc basis. Now, we have moved into putting it into some of our pipelines, especially for applications that are in the forefront, e.g., digital footprint applications. There is now a high interest to make this mandatory for all data points. We are definitely looking at an increasing usage. View full review »

We are using just one instance right now, I don't know how it scales. View full review »

We haven't actually explored scalability. But in terms of scalability, if there is anything that we need to add, like CPU, memory, or any extra RAM, that can be added dynamically. But we are not sure if Nexus would need downtime for things like that. View full review »
