"For Acquia, Drupal's lead commercial sponsor, a new
influx of $8 million last month will help fuel the engineering
behind the upcoming Drupal 7 release, which is intended to help
make the software more attractive to enterprise CMS users.
"The money -- which follows $7 million Acquia raised in March
2008 -- will also help the company build a Drupal 7-powered,
cloud-based service model, codenamed "Acquia Gardens".
""It's basically Drupal as a service, so that anyone can easily
put up their own site online quickly," Acquia CEO Tom Erickson told
InternetNews.com. "As a part of that, we're doing a lot of work
with the new release of Drupal, Drupal 7, to improve its usability,
and that's something we'll use the money for.""
