Drupal.org's New Servers

DrupalDrupal, an open source PHP-based content management system, has its web site gone down last week, due to shared server getting hacked. It asked the community for $3,000 donation so they can buy a dedicate server, but subsequently has raised $10,000! Moreover, Sun Microsystem has donated a dual-Opteron Sun Fire. Plus the three Dell Linux boxes they are going to buy, all of them will be hosted at Open Source Lab's facility. Details here.

Not bad. From a single CPU shared box to 4 dual-CPU dedicated servers. Again that shows how much community support there is in open source software.

Btw, the new FOCUS website is powered by Drupal. Much simpler, with around 20 pages. I might release it this weekend.
