[News] FOSS Interview with CEOs of SpringSource and Acquia

Hash: SHA1

Q & A: SpringSource CEO Rod Johnson

,----[ Quote ]
| Research released this week by Evans Data showed that 73 percent of the 
| market currently use or plan to adopt the Spring application framework for 
| Java within the next two years. More remarkable is that 83 percent of 
| companies with 500 or more developers use Spring, according to the 
| study[/url]. So I thought it would be a good time to speak with Rod Johnson, 
| CEO and founder of SpringSource, and author of the open source framework that 
| some in the Java community view as a superior alternative to EJB.

| Scott: Is work on the Linux standard base at a low enough level that it 
| doesn’t really affect what you guys do, or does work on the Linux standard 
| base in any way help ease compatibility problems between one distro and 
| another?   
| Dries: We’re not affected by them too much, to be honest, because we run on 
| top of the LAMP stack. The LAMP stack runs on pretty much every platform.

Open-source Drupal turns pro

,----[ Quote ]
| The standard Drupal core already has decent management, but several Acquia
| network modules, installed during setup, take administration a few steps
| further. These enable your Acquia Drupal installation to communicate securely
| with the Acquia Network and exchange configuration, operation, and profile
| information.
| A big part of what you're paying for with Acquia Drupal is support; the
| portal offers a simple way to log support incidents and track your tickets.
| During my testing, Acquia did meet the specified response deadline — and
| resolved my questions satisfactorily.


Acquia Expands Technical Team

| Acquia, a new software company offering commercial support for the Drupal
| social publishing system, today announced the addition of five new
| individuals to its technical team. With these new additions, Acquia, which
| was launched at Drupalcon in March, marks a 50-percent growth in company
| personnel.


Acquia to Ship Commercially Supported Drupal Build

,----[ Quote ]
| Acquia, Drupal founder Dries Buytaert’s new company, took to the stage last
| Thursday at the Launch Pad session at the web 2.0 Expo in SF. Although they
| didn’t win the people’s choice for best startup (this honor went to Triggit),
| their soon to be released Carbon and Spokes programs are still plenty
| enticing.
| [...]
| It can be thought of as the equivalent of Red Hat distributions of Open
| Source Linux in that it’s essentially a commercial supported distribution of
| Open Source software. The benefit of such a system is that it offers users
| all the glories of open source software and community support along with
| business-quality support and response time guarantees.
