Project History

The Revive Adserver project was started in the summer of 2013, when OpenX Source was purchased by the Revive Adserver team.

The new name for the project reflects the new breath of life the product has received. On the same day that the transfer of the project and the new name were announced, we released Revive Adserver version 3.0.0.

Revive Software and ServicesIn 2015, the intellectual property rights of the Revive Adserver software were transferred to a newly formed company named Revive Software and Services.

Project Team

The Revive Adserver project is an international team of dedicated developers and consultants:

  • Andrew Hill used to work in the London offices of OpenX Ltd from 2004 to 2009. His role was Lead Developer. His expertise and knowledge of the system, and how it came to be in the past, have proven to be invaluable for the project. Andrew lives near Adelaide, Australia.
  • Matteo Beccati is an extremely experienced software developer. He has been actively involved with OpenX Source and almost all of its predecessors since 2000. He joined the phpAdsNew team back in 2001 and also worked for OpenX Ltd from 2006 to 2009 as a Lead Developer. He then moved on to become an independent consultant and successful developer of plugins for Revive Adserver and OpenX Source. He also provides a wide range of development and technical services for OpenX Source and now Revive Adserver, from his base in Ferrara, Italy.
  • Erik Geurts is an independent ad server consultant. He has been active in the Revive Adserver community since 2003 (when it was still called OpenX Source), as a consultant and trainer, and the owner of a company offering hosting services for Revive Adserver. He lives in Groningen, The Netherlands.
