Acquia to provide vertical solutions, commercial support

In this CMSWire interview with Drupal founder Dries Buytaert we get a glimpse at what Dries’ new company, Acquia, is all about.

Acquia will provide added value to Drupal users by reducing risk and saving them time. Users who are cautious about deploying Drupal will have the option to purchase a commercial subscription from Acquia to help them maintain and monitor their Drupal website.

Dries goes on to say that Acquia will provide solutions built on top of Drupal, but the specific vertical (Media & Publishing, Education) and/or horizontal (Corporate Intranets) is still being finalized.
