Acquia provides software products and services for the Drupal web collaboration and publishing platform.

Acquia is to Drupal what RedHat is to linux. They intend to provide value added services and products for Drupal. Drupal is an open source platform, this entire site is based on Drupal.

Company founders are Dries Buytaert, original creator of Drupal, and Jay Batson, previously founding CEO of open source VOIP software company Pingtel.

The Drupal web platform has been downloaded over 2 million times since its inception, and project growth doubles annually. Drupal is used to deliver a wide variety of Web 2.0 application types including single or multi-user blogs, wikis, community networks, digital media portals, and core web content management.

Assisted by a thriving ecosystem of consultants and developers, a diverse list of organizations are using Drupal as their core social web platform including SonyBMG, Warner Brothers Records, New York Observer, Forbes, The Onion, Harvard University, and Amnesty International. A huge community has grown up around Drupal, with thousands of active individuals who contribute to the open source technology, including nearly 2000 community-developed modules for extending Drupal functionality.
