San Francisco - March 3, 2011

New Relic, Inc., the leading software-as-a-service provider of application performance management (APM) solutions, today announced that Acquia, a leading provider of products, services, and support for enterprise Drupal deployments, has selected New Relic as it’s web application management tool of choice, and is offering Bronze-level subscriptions free of charge to customers of Acquia Network and Acquia Managed Cloud. Now, Acquia customers building their sites on Drupal can use New Relic to monitor, troubleshoot, and tune their business-critical PHP web applications.

Acquia offers free Drupal distributions, commercial support, and a cloud-based hosting platform for one stop Drupal infrastructure support. Acquia’s portfolio of Drupal products and services, along with the Acquia Network of support experts and management tools, combine to create an unparalleled enterprise Drupal solution.

New Relic is the leading provider of SaaS application performance management services for Ruby, PHP, Java and .NET. It allows development and operations teams to monitor applications in production, proactively identify performance issues, and drill down for root-cause diagnosis. New Relic is integrated with the Acquia Network subscription service and will be provisioned automatically for customers of the Acquia Managed Cloud. Additionally, New Relic will be run on all Acquia properties and applications, including its Drupal-as-a-Service platform, Drupal Gardens, which hosts over 40,000 sites. The addition of free New Relic Bronze to Acquia’s Drupal-based applications and hosting platforms will make it easier for organizations to monitor critical online business services and ensure they are meeting end-user expectations for fast and reliable service.

“Whether deploying single websites or large enterprise-class applications, more organizations than ever before are implementing Drupal and turning to Acquia to help them be successful,” said Dries Buytaert, Acquia’s CTO and co-founder. “The addition of New Relic to our product and services offerings will allow our clients to monitor and troubleshoot their live Drupal applications and it gives our support team shared visibility into these apps so we can work even more closely with customers to ensure superior service delivery.”

“The team at Acquia have been fantastic partners, and from early on were enthusiastic supporters of our effort to provide the very first tool for managing the performance of production PHP-based web apps,” said Lew Cirne, New Relic’s founder and CEO. “I’m very excited about this next step in our relationship. Acquia shares our commitment to providing organizations with the tools and expertise needed to meet high standards for performance and availability for their business-critical apps.”

For individuals and organizations with Acquia accounts, getting started with New Relic is easy. Acquia Managed Cloud customers will have New Relic automatically provisioned for them. Customers hosting their own sites can log into the Acquia Network, select New Relic from the Services page and follow the onscreen instructions. Implementation typically takes just a few minutes.
