Marc, can you tell me what was the decission against Nexus?
Because we decided against Artifactory since it was forcing us to switch 
to commercial version if we do not want only a simple Maven Repository?

E.g. we use Nexus as Maven & Ivy Repo, along with NPM along with docker.
Right now we are waiting for the new feature to support also bower.

Also the maintenance of Nexus was easier on our tests (about 18 months ago).
Nexus was a simple unzip and a start of the shell script. It also was 
pretty easy upgrading to new versions, since the repository and the 
application was strictly separated.
So the setup took us 10 mins and the upgrade takes most time to create a 
backup, before doing the upgrade which takes less than 5 mins.

Would be great if you could share your experiences.
