DataSynapse acquisition will be Tibco’s Silver lining in the cloud

RobBarry Rob Barry Profile: RobBarry

While cloud computing continues to gain momentum, middleware vendors have gone into a feeding frenzy with efforts to bite off their own piece of this new frontier. Just weeks after VMware announced its plan to acquire SpringSource, we now hear that Tibco has expanded its own cloud capabilities with the acquisition of grid specialist DataSynapse for a reported $27.7 million.

As cloud computing is really just the next evolutionary step for grid – at which DataSynapse is an old hand – the move is likely meant to strengthen the capabilities of Tibco’s Silver cloud application delivery product. While Silver already allows developers to deliver new applications onto cloud platforms, DataSynapse’s FabricServer software will give it the ability to deploy a wide variety of existing applications to cloud infrastructures.

Tibco’s strengths in public cloud will find in DataSynapse’s internal cloud expertise very complimentary. This is an important step when considering the push in modern application development to explore private cloud deployments in the very near future.
