Liferay, provider of the world’s leading enterprise-class open source portal, today announced a new technology partnership with MuleSoft, the provider of web middleware built on leading open source projects Mule ESB and Apache Tomcat. As a part of the partnership, Liferay, Inc. is offering a special bundled version of Liferay Portal Enterprise Edition (EE) preinstalled with MuleSoft Tcat Server with full enterprise support coming from Liferay.
The new bundle offers customers a complete middleware web platform with extensive enterprise features, performance, and reliability with a single point of contact for all support. As the leading enterprise Tomcat Server, MuleSoft Tcat Server addresses key gaps in “plain vanilla” Apache Tomcat, with capabilities such as performance monitoring and diagnostics, application deployment, and role-based security. Based 100 percent on the Apache Tomcat binaries, with zero changes to the core code, Tcat Server allows IT teams to migrate from legacy platforms such as Oracle WebLogic and IBM WebSphere to the lightweight and open source Tomcat.
“This important partnership allows customers to implement Liferay as a strategic platform throughout their enterprise,” said Michael Young, Chief Technology Officer at Liferay, Inc. “Enterprises worldwide leverage Tomcat for its ease of use and broad ecosystem. MuleSoft Tcat Server adds extremely rich management and monitoring features on top, providing a solution that matches the best application servers available today. With this bundle, customers can now implement Liferay and Tomcat in the most demanding environments, and all with support from one phone number or URL.”News, OPEN SOURCE
