Sonatype Nexus Repository Scalability

Project Manager at a hospitality company with 10,001+ employees
In terms of the scalability, we don't see any real impacts on our internal infrastructure or our internal networking. It runs really well. If we were to add another 500 users on there, I wouldn't see any challenges either. In terms of user accounts, from my perspective, you can scale it really well. We started with about 20 users when we were going through initial testing and piloting. Then we went straight from 20 to 500 and we didn't even notice. View full review »

For Nexus Repository Manager, we are currently in a process to scale it to different sites. When we first deployed the application, we only deployed it to one data center. Now we have the need, more and more, to deploy it worldwide in order for the teams to be able to use it locally. For us, deploying it worldwide is really simple because we deploy the different applications on the different sites and then we can proxy the different repositories. For Nexus IQ, for the time being, we don't have any problems with scalability because we only have one server available for the whole company. View full review »

Currently we run with a hot failover system in each location, which is provided by a load balancer. We only have single-node instances running in each location with the one hot failover node, in case of hardware issues. But we haven't had any problems in the last two years we used Nexus Pro. It's just for our peace of mind, to give some robustness to the system, some additional availability. Initially, we started off with about two gigabytes of RAM. Based on the size of our system we had to increase that to the current configuration of eight. But it's really not a system that consumes high resources. That's one thing I like about the Nexus installation. I used to evaluate Nexus versus Artifactory and, in my opinion, Artifactory consumed much more resources. View full review »

If you deploy a single instance, it scales very well due to the storage options that it offers. I can't comment so much on the performance because we have never had more than 100 users using it. But to scale up, to build a federation of Nexus instances, like we do here - we have a big organization - I don't feel that it's very easy for the same reason I mentioned earlier: the lack of configuration through configuration files; that you have to call an API and manipulate the database to configure Nexus instances. I get the feeling from our admins that it's not easy to scale up. They don't feel confident instantiating tens of these or hundreds of these. View full review »

The scalability is effective, but it's not as effective as other tools available. Currently, they are only supporting a single data center. They should have the ability to support multiple data centers. That is actual scalability and, in effect, high-availability. For example, if I have three different instances and I want to maintain high-availability and the scalability of my tool, it needs to be scalable across my DCs, rather than on a single DC. If that single DC goes down for some reason, then my tool goes down. If I have ten servers being maintained in a DC, I have to maintain ten others in DC2 and ten more in DC3. If DC1 goes down, I have to bring DC2 up with all ten servers. That means I'm managing 30 servers, where I could be managing ten. And they should have the capability for automation to refresh from one instance to the other. View full review »

It's scalable. For our organization's needs it's fine. We have not run into any issues where it caused performance degradation. View full review »

We've had no issues, as of now, with the scalability. We have been licensed for 250 users for the Repository and we haven't found any issues. The users' roles are DevOps, pure developers, and some of them are testers. As for deployment and maintenance of the solution, that comes under DevOps. Some of the DevOps guys are supporting the platform as well as doing the builds and setting up the pipelines, etc. View full review »
