I learned about Acquia in early 2008, at the Open Source Think Tank, sipping some wine and talking about how to appropriate returns from the commons with its co-founder, Jay Batson. At that time Acquia’s business strategy was still in its infancy, and it is interesting to look at how it has evolved with time.

To learn more about their business strategy when Acquia launched their social business software Commons 2.0 I posed few questions to Bryan House, VP marketing at Acquia.

Fierce Content Management

Today's web applications face very real challenges to deployment. Websites are incredibly content rich, highly dynamic, and subject to massive swings in load because of anything from content gone viral to the death of a celebrity.

Putting a CMS in the cloud addresses the scalability issue--at least, in theory. The cloud must be optimized for the application to get its full benefit. It doesn't matter that three servers are ready to catch extra traffic if they're not configured to do so. Further, a cloud platform that's not configured to match the CMS's particular needs will have to work much harder than it needs to, resulting in higher loads than is really needed to serve the traffic. For example, it makes sense to cache static content: But will the cloud be able to tell the difference between a user who's signed into the application (and therefore receives dynamic content) and one who isn't?

Anyone who thinks cloud isn't displacing jobs should talk with Dries Buytaert, co-founder and CTO of Acquia, a Drupal-based PaaS. During a panel on the future of cloud, he said one of the largest media and entertainment companies has moved a bunch of sites to the Acquia service and let go the "entire IT team" that was running those sites. Word to the wise: If your job title is "Web master" at Acme Corp., watch out.
