This competitive review between Red Hat and TIBCO integration technologies has presented multiple differences between the products.
A notable difference is that only Red Hat JBoss Fuse is a 100% open source product. Red Hat is committed to leveraging existing open source projects and using open standards whenever possible for both product implementation and integration communication. This includes Camel, the de-facto integration standard included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse. Red Hat’s open source commitment extends to Active MQ, the upstream messaging technology used with JBoss A-MQ and included with Red Hat JBoss Fuse.
Another difference is that Red Hat JBoss Fuse clustering is based on the upstream Fabric8 community project and offers much more functionality than TIBCO clustering options.
