Acquia Makes it Easier to Maintain Drupal Sites

Acquia has significantly enhanced the Acquia Network empowering its subscribers with self-guided training for Drupal concepts and best practices.

Acquia Network, claims the company, provides developers and site builders an unparalleled collection of answers, tools, and support for assembling extraordinary web experiences with Drupal.  

Running on industry-standard hosting platforms, Drupal is free, open-source software that powers millions of websites and online applications.  

These enhancements also enable site testing under a variety of traffic load conditions; makes available an internet marketing report specific to Drupal; and offers enhanced vision and proactive management of site configuration issues. 

These apps include Insight, SEO Grader, Blitz and Drupalize.Me. 

Insight provides Drupal site owners with a dynamic, real-time, at-a-glance view into their sites.  

Powered by Volacci, SEO Grader provides an internet marketing review optimized for Drupal.  

Blitz is a self-service load and performance testing platform that enables developers to deploy high-performance websites with confidence. 

Drupalize.Me is an extensive library of tutorial videos that speed the acquisition of key Drupal skills.  

Acquia will also make available the Acquia Apps Market in Q4, 2011 by utilizing the Acquia Network API. This will allow both software vendors and developers to offer their services and applications to the more than 50,000 Drupal websites served by the Acquia Network.  

“Acquia has the broadest set of relationships with organizations that provide software, tools, and education for Drupal, and I'm pleased that we continue to strengthen the Acquia Network with these resources,” said Peter Guagenti, vice president of Services at Acquia. “Acquia Network subscribers gain access to our tools, best practices, training videos from recognized Drupal experts, and the collective knowledge of Acquia's technical team and partners.”
