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).

When we are talking about a solution, we are referring to a particular license and the features it unlocks. In contrast, when we describe a product, we specifically mean the thing you will install.

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.
