A blog for the enterprise open source community
Hyperic goes openRaven Zachary, June 6, 2006 @ 10:07 pm ET
Hyperic announced today that it has gone open (see press release). The Hyperic web site has been slowwww all day, so I assume that it has been getting a fair amount of traffic. Today, the Hyperic HQ monitoring platform is available as a free binary download and the source code will be made available in July utilizing a GPL license. I covered Hyperic’s recent fund raising in my May 10th blog posting, “Hyperic Raises Funding”. I was briefed on this plan by Javier Soltero and Bob Bickel a few weeks ago in Boston, and had to bite my lip on this announcement until today.
As an aside, one of the great things about being an analyst, opposed to my experience as a part-time journalist over the past ten or so years, is that vendors are more open with their future plans. I am not out to scoop anyone. I am here to analyze the facts and present the information through an objective lense at the proper time. Well…ok, as objective as an individual can be. You’ll know we are going downhill when we use “EXCLUSIVE” in any of our posts.
PS: We’re not trying to be the Ubuntu-JBoss-Hyperic blog, but it just so happens that these three have been dominating our posts recently.
