Rabbit Technologies Ltd. (RTL), the company behind RabbitMQ, has been
acquired by SpringSource, a division of VMware, Inc.
RTL was founded in February 2007 and is a spin out from LShift Ltd., the
UK software consultancy, and Cohesive FT, the US virtualization and
cloud computing company.
The Rabbit Team are very excited about the deal. “RabbitMQ is an
extremely successful technology and forms the backbone for many varied
cloud messaging systems,” said Alexis Richardson, chief executive
officer and co-founder, Rabbit Technologies, Ltd. “By providing a
multi-protocol, completely open, portable messaging system, our
technology can be a key enabler of tomorrow’s applications. By joining
with enterprise leaders, SpringSource and VMware, RabbitMQ expects to
continue to be at the forefront of the movement toward cloud computing.
Users and customers will benefit from an organization offering deep and
immediate experience with the challenges of managing highly available
and stable operations.”
RabbitMQ will continue to be open source and distributed in the same way
as before. The RabbitMQ community can expect to see increased investment
in this outstanding technology which should result in significant
improvements to the open source release.
RabbitMQ customers will see an increase in availability of training,
professional services and support offerings as the RabbitMQ business is
integrated with SpringSource.
