Terracotta, Inc. announced that the company is open sourcing its Java clustering product line to accelerate adoption by developers using open source frameworks. Terracotta provides drop-in clustering solutions that enable developers to achieve high availability without rewriting applications. Terracotta will provide open source products free of charge, while offering professional support under a commercial subscription. See http://www.terracotta.org/ for details.

The company's move to open source is backed by support from developers, partners and key OSS community members, including principal contributors to Spring, Tomcat and Geronimo.

"Terracotta has very powerful clustering technology, and I am excited about their open sourcing as I can clearly see the value to the community," stated Filip Hanik, PMC Member for Apache Tomcat and key contributor for Apache Tribes. "Simply put, Tomcat plus Terracotta makes mission-critical applications easier to build and run."

"The use of Java and Open Source is pervasive in financial services," said David Campbell, vice president of Principal Investment Area at Goldman Sachs. "Terracotta is now aligned with key open source frameworks to become part of the new enterprise Java stack for production applications."
