If you release software, you will often need to test a release before deploying it to a production system or an externally accessible repository. For example, if you are developing a large, enterprise web application, you may want to stage a release candidate to a staging system and perform a series of rigorous tests before a release manager makes a decision to either return a system to development or deploy a system to production.

The staging suite in Nexus Repository Manager Pro allows an organization to create a temporary staging repository and to manage the promotion of components from a staging repository to a release repository. This ability to create an isolated, release candidate repository that can be discarded or promoted makes it possible to support the decisions that go into certifying a release, while the certification process is done

on the same binaries that will ultimately be released.
