The open source Mule project was founded in 2003 by Ross Mason, CTO of MuleSoft. Frustrated by integration "donkey work," Ross set out to create a new platform that emphasized ease of development, flexibility, and re-use of components. He created Mule to bring a modern approach, one of assembly, rather than repetitive coding, to developers worldwide. The platform instantly found a following and quickly "went supersonic" in terms of adoption. Today, Mule is the world's most widely used open source enterprise service bus (ESB), with more than 2 million downloads and over 3,000 production deployments by leading organizations such as Walmart.com, Nokia, Nestlé, Honeywell and DHL, as well as 5 of the world's top 10 banks and over 35% of the Global 500.
Today, MuleSoft is once again defining the next generation of integration with Mule iON, the first true integration platform as a service (iPaaS). Mule iON is a cloud-based integration platform, built on leading Mule integration technology at the core, that enables developers and application teams to integrate and orchestrate applications and services seamlessly across the enterprise and cloud.
MuleSoft has also taken the principles of lightweight and pragmatic infrastructure software to the next level with Tcat — enterprise Tomcat Server. Tcat is a fully supported Apache Tomcat application server that solves the common pains associated with using Tomcat in production, simplifying the management, monitoring and deployment of Tomcat applications.
Built on the most widely used open source application infrastructure products, Mule ESB, Mule iON and Tcat bring an ideal combination of simplicity and power to today’s web applications.
