It’s now a done deal. VMware has officially completed their acquisition of SpringSource. SpringSource is an enterprise and web application development company and will now be seen as a division of VMware. The CEO of SpringSource will serve as the division’s general manager.
VMware says that the new division’s “charter” will be to focus on providing developers and customers the best experience for developing enterprise and web applications, as well as helping VMware create integrated products based on SpringSource technologies and VMware vSphere to deliver a simplified ‘build, run and manage’ experience. These new products will help VMware’s cloud computing strategy to deliver PaaS (Platform as Service) solutions that can be hosted by their customers internally or by service providers.
