Sonatype Product Overview
You may have noticed that there is a difference between the names used on our website (solutions), and the names you will find on our help site (products).
In general, when we are talking about a solution, we are referring a particular license (Nexus Lifecycle vs. Nexus Firewall or Nexus Repository OSS vs. Nexus Repository Pro) and the features it unlocks. In contrast, when we describe a product, we specifically mean the thing you will install Nexus Repository (Manager) and Nexus IQ (Server).
Of course, this can still be a bit confusing, so we've broken down the various solutions (licenses) available, and their corresponding product in the table below.
|Solution (License)||Product (What's Installed)|
Nexus Repository OSS 2
|Nexus Repository OSS 2|
|Nexus Repository Pro 2||Nexus Repository Pro 2|
|Nexus Repository OSS 3||Nexus Repository 3|
|Nexus Repository Pro 3||Nexus Repository 3|
|Nexus Auditor||Nexus IQ Server|
|Nexus Firewall||Nexus IQ Server|
|Nexus Lifecycle||Nexus IQ Server|
|Nexus Lifecycle Cloud|
