VMWare acquiring SpringSource which Acquired G2One

by on Aug.10, 2009, under Groovy-Grails

Wow, Big news for the Groovy and Grails Community!  VMWare has announced that it is acquiring SpringSource.  Rod Johnson, the founder of SpringSource and Initial author of the Spring Framework also posted his thoughts on SpringSource’s blog calling it ‘SpringSource – Chapter Two’.  I don’t think that too many of us saw this one coming.  Now its time to wait until Oracle acquires VMWare If Marcel Overdijk’s prophecy is true :-)

I’m not that familiar with SpringSource’s offerings, but It does seem like some of VMWare’s products are a natural extension to the goals that SpringSource is trying to accomplish with their Build / Run / Manage mantra.  The two companies don’t really compete, but VMWare + Grails seems like a good combo to me :-)  Jerome Gagner blogged about how VMWare should throw in some terracotta for some extra spice to take on (read ‘out’) Windows Azure.

I must say that PaaS offerings look really appealing to me as a developer.  Even though I *can* manage machines and hardware, I don’t want to have to take on the risks and responsibilities.  I’m not quite sure what they are going to accomplish together but VMWare + Grails + SpringSource Technologies as a PaaS solution sounds good to me.
