Varnish using Drupal

We all know that Drupal can work with Varnish, a HTTP accelerator that caches pages in virtual memory. Well, now Varnish uses Drupal too! Varnish Software, the company behind Varnish, just relaunched its site using Pressflow, a Drupal distribution with performance and scalability improvements. The site was built by Kodamera.

South African Government using Drupal

The South African Government is using Drupal for their official 2010 FIFA World Cup website at http://www.sa2010.gov.za. With the start of the 2010 World Cup just hours away, this is a timely discovery and a nice win for Drupal. The site was built by eConsultant. (Hat tip: Usamah)

Christina Aguilera using Drupal

Christina Aguilera just relaunched her website using Drupal: http://www.christinaaguilera.com/. The site is developed by Sony Music, and is one of the better looking Drupal sites that I have seen Sony Music launch. No pun intended! Welcome to the family, Christina!

U.S. Department of Commerce using Drupal

The United States Department of Commerce just relaunched their website on Drupal. Check out their new website at http://commerce.gov.

According to Wikipedia, the Department of Commerce has more than 140,000 employees, and an annual budget of $14 billion USD. Needless to say this is another great win for Drupal, and for Open Source in government!

It is great to see them take advantage of Drupal's social capabilities like blogging and commenting, as well as to see integration with social media like Twitter, YouTube and Facebook. It all helps provide greater transparency.
