VMware Acquires GemStone For Building Cloud Computing Apps

VMware’s Spring Source unit has announced that it has acquired GemStone Systems for an undisclosed sum. GemStone makes software for caching data across a server cluster to help scale applications.

“Cloud computing is a distributed deployment model, and for that reason, caching and data accessibility are of far greater strategic importance than before,” said VMware’s Rod Johnson. “We view GemStone as the kind of modern middleware that the Java developer base will need” for cloud-based applications.
