Request for Information: Drupal Association seeks Infrastructure Services vendor

The Drupal Association seeks a Infrastructure Services vendor to manage critical infrastructure for the open-source Drupal project. While internal Drupal Association staff will continue to manage the sites and services that the Drupal Association maintains, we will rely on this partner to maintain the underlying infrastructure. We are interested both in partners who offer comprehensive datacenter and infrastructure services, as well as partners who would offer systems administration consulting on our existing hardware.

DrupalCon Vienna Program Changes

It is our goal at The Drupal Association to be sustainable, so we can deliver on our mission for years to come. In 2016 we reorganized to achieve this goal, which moved us into healthier financial waters. However, we still have work to do.

After financial analysis, we can see that some programs sustain themselves and some do not. The good news is, most do. Unfortunately, DrupalCon Europe often does not. In the past, we’ve taken a loss because DrupalCon Europe is an important way in which we serve the community. Now, with renewed focus on our financial health, we need to rethink how we achieve this event in a more sustainable way.
