  experience for tens of thousands of developers. Artifactory exposes a robust artifacts management
platform using rich Ajax
  web UI and can be run out-of-the-box with a simple "unzip and launch".
-* {{{}Nexus: Maven Repository Manager (previously Proximity)}}
- Anyone who was using Proximity is now encouraged to use Nexus. The entire codebase of Proximity
was absorbed into Nexus and
- Nexus provides a migration path for all Proximity users.
- Tamas Cservenak started working on Proximity in December 2005 as he was trying to find a
way to isolate his own systems from an 
- incredibly slow ADSL connection provided by a Hungarian ISP. Proximity started as a simple
web application to proxy artifacts for 
- a small organization with connectivity issues. Creating a local on-demand cache for Maven
artifacts from the central Maven repository 
- gave an organization access to the artifacts on the Central Maven Repository, but it also
made sure that these artifacts weren't 
- downloaded over a very slow ADSL connection used by a number of developers. In 2007, Sonatype
asked Tamas to help create a similar 
- product named Nexus. Nexus is currently considered the logical next step to Proximity. Nexus
currently has an active development team, 
- and portions of the indexing code from Nexus are also being used in {{{}m2eclipse}}
+* {{{}Sonatype Nexus (previously Proximity)}}
+ Sonatype Nexus is the repository manager used as the input channel for the {{{}Central
Repository}} running 
+ the Sonatype Open Source Repository Hosting OSSRH service. Nexus is available in an open
source as well as a commercial edition
+ and runs {{{}large enterprise}} as well as open source
forge sites such 
+ as {{{}JBoss}} or {{{}Apache}}.
It provides robust 
+ features and performance with the open source version and scales to the high demands of
large enterprises with the pro edition.
