From one of our Nexus OSS users:
How many hosted repositories can Nexus OSS support?
Response from Brian Fox, CTO
There's no hard limit although you may experience performance slowdowns when you get into the thousands. We designed the security model so that you should not have to create new hosted repositories for each project. Doing so is definitely an antipattern. As long as you're not making per project sets of hosted repositories, you are unlikely to get anywhere near the number of repos to that might cause an issue.
