SpringSource has acquired Hyperic, the open source web application and infrastructure management company. With the acquisition, SpringSource claims to offer a product set for powering the entire Java application lifecycle, with solutions for building, running and managing enterprise applications.
San Francisco-based Hyperic, recently named a “cool vendor” by Gartner and a “company to watch in 2009” by Linux Magazine, provides web application performance management software that is used by numerous Fortune 1000 entities, including many of the world’s largest SaaS and consumer web companies. Hyperic’s solutions monitor and manage the performance and availability of the entire application stack from hardware and operating systems to virtual machines, web servers, application servers, databases, and more — giving IT and web operations a unified view and control of the performance and health of their entire web infrastructure.
“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. “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.”
