Continuent is Back in Business (not that we ever left)!



Dear Continuent Customers,

I am pleased to inform you that we have found a solution to extend the life of the Continuent product family. 

VMware has just completed a spin-off of the Continuent operations to a new entity (also to be called Continuent) and led by Continuent’s original founder Eero Teerikorpi. We would like to thank you for your patience during the time we have been working to find an appropriate path for the Continuent products. 

I hope you will be pleased to hear that the team members taking over Continuent solutions are people you know very well and can trust.

A number of key development, product management and support engineers from the original team (CTO Edward Archibald who is the core developer of the clustering solution, VP Engineer Gilles Rayrat who is in charge of the connectivity development and VP Products MC Brown who is the product manager and replication/big data expert) will be joining Eero on this new venture. 

Eric Stone has accepted the role as COO. The team will also include excellent support engineers such as Director Professional Services (Americas) Matt Lang and Director Professional Services (EMEA and APAC) Chris Parker.

With this team in place, you can expect that Continuent will be able to provide the same excellent support coverage you have grown used to. You can also expect us to develop new features and functionality, thus significantly extending the lifespan and usefulness of Continuent products.  

From the operational point of view, there will be remarkably few changes for existing customers:  Continuent will continue to offer the same 24/7 support services via the same support portal handled by the same staff.

Eero Teerikorpi and his group will be in touch with you shortly to manage the smooth transition of existing software and support subscriptions. 

Smooth sailing,


Eero Teerikorpi
Founder, CEO of Continuent
