Who is Hosting This?

I just found a cool service that identifies the hosting provider for any particular web site: www.WhoIsHostingThis.com. Although there are a few similar services out there, WhoIsHostingThis digs a little deeper to find the actual provider even if they're built on another cloud provider's infrastructure.

Check it out using some of the Acquia Hosted websites:

Venti Drupalccino coming right up! Acquia Hosting's automated provisioning system

Acquia Hosting is designed to be a high performance, high reliability, highly scalable, and highly manageable Drupal hosting infrastructure. Our goal was to be able to quickly provision small and large sites, meet the enormous requirements of Drupal Gardens, and keep all of it running reliably, with a small engineering and operations team. It is easy to say that "the cloud solves all of that," and indeed cloud technology provides a substantial number of benefits.

Acquia Hosting Customer Hits 5,000 requests/second! (or Why I Love Load Testing...)

Who says Drupal doesn't scale? Certainly not Acquia!

A large global PR firm recently measured their Acquia-hosted web site performance to over 3 million page views per hour (or 830 pages per second). When including all content, that's 5,000 requests per second. Wow!

Drupal gave them the flexibility to quickly respond to events. Of course, the bottom line is customer success and they reported that it was one of their "best web launches... ever".

Acquia Hosting: Now with Video Transcoding Support!

Acquia Hosting now supports video transcoding! Several hosting customers had requested access to ffmpeg, and we're pleased to augment our industry-leading Drupal hosting service with this important capability. One of our current customers uses this feature to customize their videos to whichever format their end users desire.

We're always looking for ways to improve the capabilities, reliability and performance of Acquia Hosting. Please keep the suggestions coming!

Acquia Hosting Scales 10X for Major Music Festival

One of our newest hosting customers had a great success last week after moving their site to Acquia Hosting. They produce a major music festival being held in over 30 cities this summer.

They migrated their beautiful, Drupal-powered site to Acquia Hosting last week. One day later, tickets went on sale. Their traffic peaked at well over ten times what they'd led us to expect! Our monitoring alerts started going off about an hour before the tickets went on sale but well before the end users saw an impact.

Acquia - 2009 in Review

I was so proud of what our team accomplished in 2009 that I wrote a couple of different versions of our accomplishments. I posted one last week. However, after thinking about it some more, I was so excited by specific achievements, that I decided to post this version as well, which lists many of them.

Acquia, the company that tries to make money from open source “social publishing service” Drupal, announced several additions today to the services it offers for websites built using Drupal.

Perhaps most significantly, Acquia now offers to host websites in the Internet cloud. That’s not a hugely innovative idea, but it does mean that any company wanting to build a Drupal website can treat Acquia as the “one-stop shop” for getting that site up-and-running.
