Sonatype Nexus Repository Previous Solutions

Project Manager at a hospitality company with 10,001+ employees
We were using the open-source and free version of Nexus. Prior to that we weren't using a competing solution. We liked most of the things that we got with the free version. The extra capabilities we got were things like being able to support multiple data centers, a better support structure around high-availability. In addition, the whole aspect of having support at all was also among the main reasons we went for the product. View full review »

Architect at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
In our team, we did not use another solution. Before adopting Nexus we used just static websites that we copied files to and indexed manually. There was no other solution before that. In other parts of the organization they used Artifactory. They're switching because Sonatype is just more manageable. It offers more types of repositories that may not be supported in Artifactory, and the search facilities are better in Nexus. View full review »

We did use Artifactory, it's a competitive product. Before, our division was part of a different organization and that organization had the ability to use outside, hosted repositories. So we could go to Maven hosted repositories outside of the network; truly open-source. Artifactory was only used certain solutions. It was a different scenario. Nexus provides more capabilities when it comes to hosted and proxy repositories. This was the primary reason we switched. View full review »

Chief, Enterprise Automated Deployment (EAD) Branch at a government with 11-50 employees
They were using SharePoint sites, file folders on servers. We still using them to some degree. They switched to Sonatype because they wanted to get the increased security portion of Sonatype, known as Nexus IQ Server, but they had to purchase the repository first. They're just now getting the money for the rest of it. View full review »
