Re: Archiva vs. Nexus

Is it easy to move a Nexus repository from one system to the next? I was
thinking of using my personal workstation to host Nexus, because it is
more powerful than any server we have, and I don't want to have to go
find a server with spare cycles.

Would it make more sense for me to create a VMWare virtual machine
called 'nexus' and run it there? That way if I want to move the
repository to another machine I can move the VM. Does anyone have any
preconfigured VMs with Nexus already installed?

If I am running in a VM, would it make more sense to run it with Linux
so I don't have to pay for another Windows License?

Cheers, Eric
