Reston, VA--October 12, 2006 -- Rivet Logic Corporation, a leading provider of open source consulting and training services, today announced that it has added Mule (http://mule.mulesource.org) to its suite of services. Mule is the fastest-growing open source platform for enterprise integration, with more than 200,000 downloads since its 1.0 release in 2005, and large-scale production use at major enterprises worldwide.

Rivet Logic is currently working with Mule to enable a large content management implementation at a major financial services institution. Rivet Logic is planning numerous additional field engagements with Mule, and has become the first channel partner for MuleSource, (http://www.mulesource.com), the newly-launched services and support organization for Mule.

"Enterprise integration is a natural extension to our existing open source service offerings, and Mule provides us a true best-of-breed platform," said Mike Vertal, CEO at Rivet Logic. "We have seen first-hand the value that Mule delivers to large enterprises who want to increase flexibility and eliminate proprietary lock-in. We are excited to start a partnership with the outstanding team at MuleSource, and look forward to delivering value-added Mule services."

Mule is a Java-based, open source ESB platform that enables enterprise developers to perform a wide variety of integration tasks, from bringing new applications into production, to modernizing legacy applications and platforms, to enabling SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture). Mule's programming model enables faster integration results than proprietary solutions, at a fraction of the cost. And unlike proprietary approaches that frustrate users with complex, closed frameworks, specialized skill sets and architectural lock-in, Mule's modular design enables enterprise developers to take integration into their own hands.

Mule is already in mission-critical production environments worldwide, including several of the world's largest financial, telecommunications and transportation companies. With more than one billion transactions passed through Mule servers since 2005, Mule is the industry's most battle-tested open source integration approach. Because of Mule's simplified development model, the product been adopted in a wide range of other enterprise integration scenarios. For example, top Wall Street investment banks with trillions of dollars under management are using Mule as the backbone for data transport in high-volume trading environments. Mule is designed to allow developers to start new integration projects "at the edge," and to connect disparate applications in an incremental manner.
