Mule Enterprise to include GigaSpaces' XAP technology for hot failover and high availability capabilities
San Francisco, April 14, 2009 - MuleSource, the leading provider of open source service oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure software, today announced an OEM agreement with GigaSpaces Technologies (www.gigaspaces.com), a leading provider of application platforms for Java and .Net environments.
Under the terms of the agreement, MuleSource leverages GigaSpaces' eXtreme Application Platform (XAP) technology to provide customers functionality that guarantees continuous high availability for the Mule enterprise service bus (ESB), with no data loss and no compromise in latency or throughput. These new capabilities are available with the Mule Enterprise product as a packaged solution.
"As our enterprise customers increasingly use Mule for their mission-critical applications, they are requiring 100% uptime and redundancy," said Ross Mason, CTO and co-founder of MuleSource. "Mule and GigaSpaces' technologies are highly complementary, and many of our users have been urging us to create a joint solution.
Today, a number of MuleSource customers have already deployed Mule and GigaSpaces XAP together for high availability, scalability, and performance. Now, customers will benefit from an integrated solution which delivers GigaSpaces' sub-second hot failover capabilities with no need for any additional integration or tuning.
"We are committed to building strong alliances with other established technology leaders to deliver the best available end-to-end solutions," said John P. Giubileo, Americas EVP and general manager at GigaSpaces. "With XAP's dynamic scalability for high-volume transactional applications, Mule users can create highly reliable and infinitely scalable SOA infrastructures."
GigaSpaces and MuleSource recently hosted a joint webinar on the details and value of this solution and the benefits achieved by using both MuleSource and GigaSpaces in enterprise architectures, including a real-life use case. To view an archive, visit www.gigaspaces.com/resource/webcasts.
