VMware Acquire Rabbit Technologies
VMware have announced the acquisition of Rabbit Technologies, Ltd.
Rabbit Technologies is an open source software company based in the United Kingdom. SpringSource, a division of Vmware, will add the RabbitMQ open messaging system to its suite of technologies. RabbitMQ is based on the AMQP open standard, and has a platform-neutral distribution, in addition to platform-specific packages and bundles.
“While messaging has always been a key infrastructure element used in the creation of enterprise applications, cloud applications require a fundamentally different messaging infrastructure,” said Rod Johnson, the general manager of SpringSource. “By adding RabbitMQ to our suite, SpringSource can extend its emerging application platform with another element of technology that is critical to modern virtual and cloud deployment models.”
