Drupal developer bags $7 million

Plans to push startup Acquia into the enterprise

Belgian developer Dries Buytaert is on the verge of putting open source CMS (content management system) Drupal officially into business.

Announcing US$7 million in first round founding from North Bridge Venture Partners, Sigma Partners, and O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures, Buytaert and Jay Batson, former CEO and founder of Pingtel, hope to steer their Drupal spun startup Acquia deeper into the enterprise.

Drupal already counts SonyBMG, Warner Brothers Records, Forbes, and The Onion as proponents. The investment in Acquia will fuel a foray into value-added software and services for Drupal, the company says.
