Acquia Search goes public beta

At Acquia, we've launched Acquia Search in public beta today.

As I've previously announced, Acquia Search is a hosted Acquia Network service, delivering the capabilities of the Apache Solr as a web service to Drupal websites of any size.

Acquia Stack Installer (aka DAMP)

If you're looking to evaluate Drupal, or if you're a Drupal developer, you have got to check out Acquia's Stack Installer, aka DAMP, that we released at DrupalCon DC today.

Tom Erickson joined Acquia as CEO

Acquia's subscription business has taken off as expected, and we are now launching a number of new initiatives as announced in the Acquia 2009 roadmap. With the coming release of Acquia Search, new projects like Acquia Fields and Acquia Gardens, all in addition to our existing subscription business, there is a ton of stuff going on at Acquia. We've set ourselves some very ambitious goals.

Company craftsmanship in evidence

Acquia isn't my first company; I've constructed a few before. In fact, bringing well-suited people together to achieve something together is one of those things that (I think) I just naturally do. I've done it over and over in life. Maybe it comes from my dad being a guy who was always pushing the envelope when it came to things like health foods for long life, etc., and then trying to convince others to do likewise.

Drupal in the New York Times

The Drupal NYC group just hosted its sixth annual DrupalCamp on Saturday, February 28th, at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University in downtown Brooklyn. Held the weekend before DCDC, the event was attended by some seventy people and can boast of something not many DrupalCamps have -- a writeup in The New York Times (subscription may be required).

DrupalCon DC

Drupal has thousands of contributors. About twice a year, we stop contributing long enough to have a beer together. We call that DrupalCon. ;-)

Drupal and Alfresco

Alfresco and Optaros, in conjunction with Acquia, have made available a set of Drupal modules that integrate Drupal with Alfresco using the CMIS APIs. See the CMIS module and the CMIS Alfresco module on drupal.org.

Acquia 2009 roadmap

Now that the Acquia Network and Acquia Drupal are available, it is a good time to provide more visibility into where Acquia is headed. Just like we did early on in Acquia's life when we announced "Carbon" (now called "Acquia Drupal") and "Spokes" (now called the "Acquia Network"), we'd like to provide some transparency and visibility in our product strategy for 2009. This post provides a window into those plans.

Mark Boulton to help with Drupal 7

Drupal's steep learning curve filters out far too many smart, motivated people who could benefit from Drupal. We see it all the time in the Drupal.org forums, in my "State of Drupal" surveys, on Twitter, when talking to customers, and on the web. Even though we've made significant progress with making Drupal easier to use, a lot of work is left to be done. With other content management systems such as Joomla!
