In a press statement, Brian Fox, CTO and co-founder of Sonatype said, “Sonatype was founded on the principles of open source – that collaboration and community can help developers innovate faster and create higher quality software.
In a blog they mentioned that Sonatype has always been interconnected with the world of open source software development. They have contributed significantly to Apache Maven and provides the world’s most heavily trafficked repository of open source components (Central).
“Nexus Repository has become a defacto standard within DevOps toolchains worldwide and is simply the best way to continuously control binaries, build artifacts, and release candidates as they flow through the modern SDLC. By contributing repository formats to the community, we’re maximising developer flexibility and further accelerating continuous innovation,” he shared further.
