vFabric Suite 5.2 has been released and is now available for VMware customers to download and deploy. Considered a minor release, this update fulfills VMware’s desire to update the 13 different application components that comprise the suite every six months. The improvements across the products for this version focus on improving standardization and consistency across products, an important maintenance effort as several of the products are relatively new to the vFabric product portfolio. Customers will universally benefit from standardization across products on five fronts:
- Platform Support
- Accessibility certification
- Security Audits
Additionally, for products based on open source projects, such as tc Server, Web Server, RabbitMQ, and Postgres, we’ve upgraded the core components to what is current in the community as well as run these products through VMware’s quality control process, ensuring these products are both updated and stable. We are also making it easier for users to choose between using commercial and open source components by being able to track usage of licensed open source components (Apache HTTPD, Apache Tomcat, and RabbitMQ) and extending features to cover open source components, such as EM4J for Tomcat. This enhances the flexibility of the vFabric Suite license to allow customers to have full coverage across their mixed use of commercial and open source products and an easy way to migrate between the two.
