"Brenda Boggs in Acquia Support has become Code Level Up's secret weapon, ace in the hole, intellect of last resort. Whenever our team is scratching our heads about how to approach a Drupal issue, Brenda is there with a creative idea, a mind-bogglingly-useful link that explains exactly how to resolve our problem, or some sage advice to steer us in the right direction. Our project is considerably ahead of schedule thanks to Brenda. I could not recommend her, or the Acquia service, more highly."

With all of the buzz encircling Acquia lately, we thought it prudent to share a review with our readers since we’ve never truly delved in to see what Acquia’s rendition of Drupal is made of.

For those of you unfamiliar with Acquia, we recommend you watch the following video that we shared previously that is an introduction to the product: Acquia Introduction

To get started, we decided to test the Acquia Drupal Installer stack which is available from the Acquia website and is a packaged of Apache, PHP, MySQL, PHPMyadmin and the Acquia Drupal version. The stack installer installs them all and allows you to quickly get to the nitty gritty and start playing.

I hung out Monday night with Dries Buytaert, founder and creator of Drupal, the open source content management system that is now powering tens of thousands of websites, including Ourmedia, The Onion, Sony Music artists (see myplay.com) and many others. Also spent time with Jay Batson, co-founder of Acquia, which just launched an important new partnership with Drupal on Tuesday.

In this 11-minute interview, Dries talks about Drupal, the power of open source publishing, and a new partnership with Acquia, the Boston-area company that gives citizen publishers a free publishing platform and tech support to get it up and running.

Acquia launch round up: looking back on a big day

I spent most of the day yesterday reading and participating in Drupal.org threads, blog posts, press articles, forum threads, Twitter feeds, and IRC transcripts of full of conversation about our new product and service offerings.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Acquia: Commercially supported Drupal

When it comes to choosing a content management system (CMS), the open-source Drupal is often a great choice for large or content-rich sites, because it scales well, supports multiple authors and is thoroughly customizable. The downside of all of this power is that for new users especially, the learning curve can be pretty steep. Although Drupal 6 was a huge step forward in overall usability, from a web admin perspective, it's still not exactly easy.

Acquia, a company founded by Drupal creator and project lead Dries Buytaert, has just launched Acquia Drupal, which packages Drupal and some of the most popular and highly rated community modules together and also offers commercial support. This is a big win for both Drupal and current and future Drupal users.

Acquia Drupal is a free GPL-licensed download. It contains the Drupal 6.x core (currently at 6.4), a bunch of community contributed modules, like Google Analytics, Mollom (Dries's spam-fighting content solution), and rating and image gallery tools. I installed Acquia Drupal on my local test server and also installed the latest Drupal release, 6.4. The install process was already easier with Acquia Drupal, because I didn't have to create a settings.php file in advance before filling in my database details.

Acquia Launches Commercial Drupal Distribution, Support Network

Acquia today accomplished their goal of releasing a commercially supported version of the open source content management system Drupal. At the same time, they've launched the Acquia Network, a service that offers site management tools and various subscription-base levels of support for anyone running Drupal 6.

For many organizations, the challenge presented by Drupal is that while it's a powerful and flexible system, there hasn't historically been an "official" support model. Don't get me wrong - the Drupal community is very helpful and enthusiastic, but when your site goes down, you're stuck posting question and waiting for responses, or hoping your developer and site administrators can help out.

Acquia has announced the availability of Acquia Drupal, a free and commercially supported distribution of the popular Drupal open source social publishing system. They also unveiled the Acquia Network, which offers subscription-based access to technical support and remote network services that simplify the development and operation of Drupal Web sites. Entry level subscriptions to the Acquia Network will be free of charge through the end of the year.

For those that aren’t overly familiar with Drupal, it’s an open source web development and content management platform that publishes, manages and organizes a wide variety of content on websites. Tens of thousands of people and organizations are using Drupal.

With the release of Acquia Drupal with its streamlined packaging of Drupal and a support system via the Acquia Network, there will definitely be a tremendous increase in Drupal developers and websites powered by this Drupal.

Acquia backs Drupal for enterprise adoption

Drupal has always been a great open-source web content management system. Forrester called it one of the two open-source content management systems to consider. Its biggest deficiency was arguably a lack of enterprise-class support and polish to support the project.

Today, however, Acquia, the company behind Drupal, has remedied this void, launching its commercially-supported distribution of Drupal and a network service to provide updates and other services around the core Drupal distribution.

Acquia is taking a page out of Red Hat's playbook, boiling down the complexity of the deep and wide Drupal community. While I like the look of its Network service, it is the Acquia Drupal distribution that I think is most newsworthy for enterprises looking to adopt Drupal.
