FuseSource Launches Independent Operations; Enables Enterprises Worldwide to Benefit from Open Source Integration and Messaging Software


[EDITOR'S NOTE: ebizQ no longer publishes press releases. This past vendor-contributed content remains available to readers, but is no longer being updated or replaced.]

A Wholly owned Subsidiary of Progress Software, FuseSource Emerges as World Leader in Professional Open Source Integration and Messaging Solutions for Enterprise Use

FuseSource Corporation today announced it has launched operations as an independent company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Progress Software Corporation.

ebizQ received the following:

FuseSource provides professional open source integration and messaging software, tools, training, and consulting to organizations seeking to leverage these technologies in the enterprise. As an independent company, FuseSource is better positioned to meet the evolving needs of its current customers and enterprise IT users actively seeking to gain the benefits of low cost and vendor independence while continuing to get the level of service provided by enterprise software vendors.

To date, FuseSource has enabled more than 200 large enterprises worldwide to successfully implement large-scale open source integration projects, including the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Sabre Holdings. This customer success is reflected in the company’s greater than 130 percent growth in 2009 and community downloads exceeding one million per year. FuseSource is a professional open source business customers can rely on for their enterprise IT needs for integration for messaging.

“FuseSource is offering us the best of both worlds when it comes to our integration and messaging infrastructure software,” said Brent Cromley, senior director of engineering, Zappos. “Not only do we have access to the flexibility, cost-savings and community of highly engaged open source projects, but we also get the support of a trusted partner that understands what’s required for successful, large-scale implementations. Any enterprise engaged in an integration and messaging deployment, and looking to leverage open source should seriously consider working with FuseSource.”

FuseSource provides its customers with access to professional open source software through a subscription model. FuseSource subscriptions include certified distributions of Apache Software Foundation projects, professional documentation, enterprise-level support and SLAs, and tools to allow management and metering. As important, FuseSource subscriptions provide customers the ability to influence the product roadmap as well as access to consulting and expertise from open source professionals solely focused on enterprise integration and messaging. FuseSource offers the following certified Apache distributions:

  • Fuse ESB: Based on Apache ServiceMix, Fuse ESB is a fully productized enterprise service bus (ESB), the central “backbone” supporting enterprise integration efforts.
  • Fuse Message Broker: Based on Apache ActiveMQ, Fuse Message Broker is an open source Java Message Service (JMS) Message Broker, which enables applications and service components to communicate with each other.
  • Fuse Mediation Router: Based on Apache Camel, the Fuse Mediation Router is an engine that enables enterprises to quickly implement enterprise integration patterns.
  • Fuse Services Framework: Based on Apache CXF, the Fuse Services Framework is a platform that enables rapid development and deployment of Web services, which enable applications to share specific functionality and information with each other.

Recognizing that organizations utilizing open source software within their enterprises have unique needs, FuseSource has created The Fuse Forge, an open environment for the creation of integration projects. The Fuse Forge provides a community where developers can focus on their applications, rather than on software development, and is designed to help users get the most out of Fuse technology.

“FuseSource is an integral part of the Apache community and the natural choice for enterprises seeking to deploy open source integration and messaging software. We have more than 20 active project code committers on staff, including co-founders of Apache ServiceMix, Apache ActiveMQ, Apache Camel and Apache CXF. No other professional open source company can claim the level of focus and experience in integration and messaging that we can,” said FuseSource President Larry Alston. “Customer success is our exclusive focus and we bring our expertise and understanding of open source integration and messaging to bear in every engagement.”
