Apache
Well suited for small organizations to medium-sized teams/organizations. Apache Archiva is well suited for:
  • It acts as a central repository/proxy of the artifacts generated and used by the teams.
  • It provides control on which open source repositories can be utilized by the team.
  • Saves network bandwidth by reducing outbound traffic.
Apache Archiva is less appropriate for organizations where immediate support/bug resolutions are required.

Chocolatey Software
It is very easy to install a batch of Windows software from the command line when setting up a new machine. All needed software installs could be scripted in one batch file and then run on a new machine. It is also very easy to keep the installed software up-to-date via the command line.

Chocolatey Software
The big reason I picked Chocolatey was the fact that npm and Maven are not well-suited for native windows environments. I had to run on a Windows Server virtual machine, so was limited by what I could use, and I did not want to install WSL on the machine. So, I picked Chocolately for dependency management on those machines.
