Mulesoft Takes on SpringSource with Tcat Server and Cloudcat

MuleSoft, makers of the popular Mule ESB, have entered the enterprise tomcat wars currently being waged by Redhat and SpringSource by introducing Tcat Server and Cloudcat.

Tcat Server is an enterprise version of Tomcat.  What that actually means will be the scope of a separate post after I've had a chance to download it and play with it a little.  What it looks like, based on reading the product literature on the web site is a vendor-supported tomcat implementation with a custom Tomcat Management console.  The console apparently can manage not only the box that Tcat server runs on but remote tomcat servers as well running another Tcat server instance or an ASF supplied tomcat 5.5 or tomcat 6.0 instance.

Cloudcat is a version of Tcat Server packaged as an image for deployment into popular cloud services from Amazon and GoGrid.  It can be managed from the same Tcat Server console.

Perhaps a tcserver vs. Tcat Server vs jboss web comparison is in my near future!
