With the security concerns around open source, the management and vulnerability scanning, it's relatively new. In today's world more and more people are going through the open source arena and downloading code like Python, GitHub, Maven, and other external repositories. There is no way for anyone to know what our users, especially our data scientists and our developers, are downloading. We deployed Sonatype to give us the ability to see if these codes are vulnerable or not. Our Python users and our developers use Sonatype to download their repositories. Given the confidentiality of our customer, we keep everything on-prem. We have four instances of Sonatype running, two Nexus Repositories and two IQ Servers, and they're both HA. If one goes down, then all the data will be replicated automatically.
