What do you like most about Sonatype Nexus Repository?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The key benefit we get from it is speed to delivery. It has improved our overall time to get new applications out with new code. That's true whether from a platform perspective, where we are quickly deploying up-to-date docker containers, or whether we are looking to deploy new code out to deliver a new application.
The most important feature of Nexus Repository Manager is the storing and sharing of components. For Nexus IQ, it's the scanning of projects and the rating of vulnerabilities and license violations that we may have in our products.
The searching capability is good... and we are managing multiple central repositories.
The core features are the most important: We can host libraries, upload them, and they can be used across multiple teams.
One of the most valuable features is the variety of permissions you can use on the repository. That helps us protect access to the information inside of the repository.
The primary feature is that I now have the ability to provide a central platform for storing build artifacts; a concise way for any project team to store its build with us.
If there are any issues in build security, it can pick them up straight away.
For us, the ability to do proxying and federations of repositories is very important. It gives us flexibility. We are the largest physics research laboratory in the world. With 12,000 people, we need to have good solutions to federate organizations inside our lab.
I'm researching Nexus and Artifactory. Which one is the better option for a binary repository and for deployment too?
