Nexus OSS is a free open source repository manager. It supports a wide range of package formats and it’s used by hundreds of tech companies.
This chart bootstraps a Nexus OSS deployment on a cluster using Helm. This setup is best configured in GCP since:
- google cloud storage is used for backups
- GCE Ingress controller is used for using a pre-allocated static IP in GCE.
There is also the option of using a proxy for Nexus that authenticates Nexus against an external identity provider (only GCP IAM at the moment) which is disabled by default.
- Kubernetes 1.8+ with Beta APIs enabled
- PV provisioner support in the underlying infrastructure
- Fulfill Nexus kubernetes requirements
Flow control for binaries and build artifacts.
✔ Store: Give your teams a single source of truth for every component they use.
✔ Adapt: Provide universal coverage for all major package formats and types.
✔ Cache: Optimize build performance and reliability by caching proxies of remote repositories.
✔ Scale: Install on an unlimited amount of servers for an unlimited amount of users.
