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 reflected the new breath of life the product had 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.

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

In 2024, the Revive Adserver open source project, and its two flavors Revive Adserver Download edition and Revive Adserver Hosted edition were transferred to the care of Aqua Platform, a company specializing in high performance hosting of the Revive Adserver software.
