New MuleSoft Open-Source ESB Toolset Offers Cloud Application LinksJanuary 21, 2011 No Comments
MuleSoft has debuted an upgrade to its open-source enterprise service bus software with new capabilities that make it easier to integrate on-premise applications and data with cloud-based Web applications.
The new Mule ESB 3.1 also provides a management console with capabilities based on the DevOps movement to develop a common set of processes and methodologies that cover software development, technology operations and quality assurance.
MuleSoft’s software, which competes with ESB software from Tibco, IBM (NYSE:IBM) and Oracle (NSDQ:ORCL), is built on the open-source Mule ESB and Apache Tomcat technologies. The company follows a business model similar to that of MySQL, offering a free “community edition” of its product and a commercial version with extended capabilities and support services.
Mule ESB 3.1 is “a major generational upgrade” of the software, said Mateo Almenta Reca, in an interview.APPLICATION INTEGRATION, CLOUD COMPUTING, News, OPEN SOURCE
