FuseSource and Savoir Technologies Form Partnership to Accelerate Enterprise Implementation and Management of Open Source Integration and Messaging Solutions


FuseSource(TM) Subscriptions and Savoir Services Deliver Everything Enterprises Need to Benefit from the Cost-Effectiveness and Proven Performance of Apache ServiceMix, Camel, ActiveMQ and CXF Projects

BEDFORD, Mass., Sep 07, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — FuseSource Corp., leaders in open source integration and messaging, today announced the formation of a strategic partnership with Savoir Technologies, a leader in open source SOA implementation services. Under the new partnership, Savoir will provide implementation services to enterprises subscribing to FuseSource’s distributions of integration projects from the Apache Software Foundation, including the Apache ServiceMix, Camel, ActiveMQ and CXF.

“This partnership combines the best of both worlds: FuseSource(TM) subscriptions and Savoir services,” said Larry Alston, president of FuseSource. “FuseSource has helped enterprises worldwide achieve unprecedented cost savings and system flexibility through expert deployment of open source integration and messaging solutions. In most cases, these successes simply were not feasible using expensive software stacks from commercial software vendors and helped fuel the rapidly growing global demand for open source alternatives. Our partnership with Savoir gives FuseSource customers a trusted option for developing their integration and messaging infrastructure more easily, and getting their applications to market sooner.”

FuseSource provides subscriptions to commercial and certified versions of Apache Software Foundation integration and messaging projects. These certified enterprise distributions include the Fuse ESB(R) (based on Apache ServiceMix), Fuse Mediation Router(R) (based on Apache Camel), Fuse Message Broker(R) (based on Apache ActiveMQ), and Fuse Services Framework(R) (based on Apache CXF) products. FuseSource subscriptions provide enterprises with:

— Deep expertise and influence: FuseSource employs more project founders and active committers to Apache Software Foundation integration and messaging projects than any other company. This singular level of engagement and expertise provides enterprises with a direct link to those who know the technology best and influence the development of new functionality and features — as well as the confidence that their experiences and resulting contributions will benefit the larger open source community.

— Service Level Agreements: A worldwide support organization enables FuseSource to provide service level agreements enterprise customers have come to expect from enterprise software vendors. The FuseSource support organization employs technical staff members who are experts in integration and messaging. Many are also committers to Apache Software Foundation projects.

— Tooling for Development and Production: FuseSource provides a wide range of tools designed to allow developers to build, test and deploy successfully. Fuse(TM) IDE enables developers to “drop and drag” integration components in an intuitive, visual environment, while making it possible to test the resulting integration routes with unprecedented ease. Fuse HQ is a metering and monitoring tool used to facilitate the management of systems as they move from development, testing, and production.

“Savoir has deep experience deploying SOA architectures in some of the world’s largest enterprises,” said Jeff Genender, principal, Savoir Technologies. “We believe there is an enormous universe of enterprise integration and messaging projects that simply are not suited to the offerings of commercial software vendors. For those projects, open source is a compelling solution, and that is why we chose to partner with the recognized leader in open source integration and messaging solutions: FuseSource.”
