MuleSource Community Membership Surges 350 Percent in One Year

Growth a reflection of increased demand for simple, lightweight integration solutions
Thursday, January 1, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO – June 9, 2009 – MuleSource, the leading provider of open source service oriented architecture (SOA) infrastructure software, today announced that year-over-year growth in registered Mule users has exceeded 350 percent.

“We are seeing an explosion of interest among development teams in deploying ESB infrastructure that solves their specific integration pains, particularly as CIOs are no longer interested in doing heavyweight and expensive top-down SOA projects,” said Ross Mason, co-founder and CTO of MuleSource. “With Mule ESB, developers can start creating service-based applications very quickly and easily, enabling IT organizations immediately to see value from service-orientation and decoupled integration without wrestling with the complexity of traditional vendor-driven SOA approaches.”

In 2008, MuleSource announced the release of Mule ESB 2.0, featuring significant changes that dramatically simplified configuration and development with Mule ESB, in addition to further improving the performance and flexibility of the platform. Improvements included a new Mule IDE, a schema-based configuration style, and out-of-the-box support for integration of REST services.

More recently, MuleSource significantly upgraded the online infrastructure used to serve the Mule community with a re-launch of the MuleSource.org website, which has made it easier for community members to access downloads and information, contribute to Mule projects, and interact with other Mule ESB users and developers. In addition to the new website, MuleSource created the MuleSource developer blog, where the community can get “off-the-hoof” comments, technical tips, and breaking news – direct from MuleSource’s core technical team.
