Enterprise Java: SpringSource Acquires Hyperic

Acquisition will unify the Developer to Datacenter application lifecycle

“SpringSource is taking responsibility for streamlining enterprise Java to fully cater to the needs of developers, IT administrators and operators who create, deploy and manage business-critical applications,” said Rod Johnson, SpringSource CEO (pictured during a SYS-CON.TV interview at JavaOne in 2008), as it was announced this morning that SpringSource has acquired substantially all of the assets of Hyperic, the open source leader in web application and infrastructure management.

“The acquisition of Hyperic enables SpringSource to provide a complete, proven suite of lean application infrastructure software products that enable enterprises to accelerate the build, run and manage application lifecycle within the data center, virtual, or cloud computing environments,” Johnson added.

“This is the marriage of two companies that share a common vision for the future of enterprise solutions and the application lifecycle. SpringSource is the default choice for many developers and IT architects creating Java applications, and Hyperic is the default choice for many IT operations professionals that need to manage those applications,” said Javier Soltero, formerly CEO of Hyperic and now CTO of Management Products at SpringSource. “Managing enterprise Java requires visibility up and down the stack and across a company’s network and data center, including virtualization and cloud computing environments. The divide that separates development from IT operations has just become a lot smaller.”

Additional information on the acquisition is available online and can be found at http://www.hyperic.com/springsource.
