Nexus OSS
This version contains basic features and is based on our Open Source Software (OSS) code. Some features distributed with this bundle are not open source, but are offered by Sonatype for free use under our license terms.

Nexus Pro
This is our flagship repository manager distribution with all of our advanced features. A valid license is required to use advanced features.

Nexus Pro Trial
This distribution is delivered as a platform specific executable file and uses a different install process than regular Nexus Professional bundles.
