Red Hat acquiring FuseSource to add to JBoss portfolio

FuseSource's open source middleware will be folded into portfolio of java application server software

Article comments

Red Hat is in the process of acquiring open source integration software vendor FuseSource from its parent company Progress Software.

Red Hat plans to add the FuseSource software to its JBoss portfolio of Java application server software. The software will be used to aid in integrating applications so that they can run in conjunction with one another, said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager of middleware at Red Hat.

FuseSource is based in Bedford, Massachusetts. Like Red Hat, the company helps maintains maintain various open source software projects, and offers support subscriptions, as well as training and documentation. It has counted among its customers the US Federal Aviation Administration, the UK branch of the Prudential life insurance firm, travel services firm Sabre, the Vodafone telecommunications firm, and CERN, the European nuclear research organisation.

Perhaps the most widely used product within FuseSource's portfolio is Apache ActiveMQ, a message broker that is often used as a component in ESBs (Enterprise Service Bus). The company also manages Apache Camel - a rule-based routing application - as well as the Apache ServiceMix ESB and the Apache CFX Web services framework. FuseSource has collected these technologies into a number of pre-integrated packages, including Fuse ESB Enterprise and Fuse MQ Enterprise.

The closet competitors to FuseSource have been MuleSoft, which offers an open source ESB, and Talend, which offers a combined set of data, application and process integration tools.
