Revive Adserver is open-source advertisement server software based on the OpenX Source software. On September 13, 2013 OpenX Source was acquired from OpenX Technologies by former OpenX developer Andrew Hill and is now being developed as Revive Adserver.[3]

Product history

Revive Adserver is based on the code of OpenX Source and its predecessors OpenAds, MaxMediaManager, and phpAds. Due to numerous changes in direction with OpenX and its predecessors over the years and OpenX technologies decreased interest in maintaining the open-source version, Andrew Hill, one of the code's original developers, and others acquired the rights to the legacy open-source code base of OpenX on September 13, 2013[3] and released it on the same day as Revive Adserver.[1]
