SpringSource (which VMware acquired last year) is buying GemStone Systems, a company that provides enterprise data management solutions. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

GemStone’s flagship product is GemFire Enterprise, a scalable, distributed data platform that dynamically puts data where it is needed across a network to remove latency. Other GemStone products include GemFire SQLFabric, a memory-oriented SQL data management platform and GemStone/S, a platform for running distributed Smalltalk applications.

According to the release, the acquisition will further SpringSource and VMware’s ability to provide data management technology for emerging cloud-centric applications, with built-in availability, scalability, security and performance guarantees.

This has been a busy year already for Spring Source and parent VMware. VMware just struck a deal with Salesforce to use SpringSource to power Java applications in the Service Cloud. And SpringSource also recently acquired Rabbit Technologies a few weeks ago.
