To start with, what is Drupal? Drupal is an open-source management backend framework that is available online for free and is written in PHP. It is suitable for both professional developers, who have an advanced API, and for common website users, as it doesn’t require any specific IT skills for launching and administration. This has made it a popular choice for any type of website, from personal blogs to online stores and government websites. It is one of the world’s most used frameworks and is very common with high-traffic sites.
What makes Drupal different from other Content Management Systems is its flexibility and scalability. Websites using Drupal can use any of the multiple modules already available for the software. World–renowned corporations are choosing Drupal because of its robust and flexible infrastructure, innovative design, and open-source modules.
When faced with the task of migrating NASA’s high-profile content, selecting the right content management system was fundamental. Building with Drupal on the Amazon cloud ensures that NASA’s content is securely stored and scalably available, while affording NASA the benefit of very flexible development capabilities when in designing, implementing and integrating new features and services. With its user-driven APIs, dynamic host provisioning, infinite compute scalability and storage, well-architected security architecture, and continually developed robust new features, AWS and Drupal proved the perfect match to meet the content needs of both NASA and the public.
