Red Hat said Wednesday that it’s arranged to buy FuseSource from Progress Software. Terms were not disclosed but they’re not material.
FuseSource evidently has some open source integration and messaging widgetry that Red Hat thinks is valuable. Red Hat’s plans are fixated on applications. FuseSource is supposed to let it “accelerate the delivery of application integration products and services to enterprise customers.”
Things might get clearer when Red Hat announces “comprehensive commercialization plans” later this summer.
Application integration is one of the fastest-growing segments of the enterprise software market, it says. “As cloud computing becomes more prevalent, enterprise customers are demanding greater application integration to enable seamless use of cloud computing.”
That’s right where Red Hat’s living right now.
FuseSource will go into its JBoss middleware portfolio. It says FuseSource has many Fortune 500 customers. Its products are based on Apache ServiceMix, Apache ActiveMQ, Apache CFX and Apache Camel.
