Interview with NeoSpire

In our ongoing quest to interview our incredible sponsors, we had the opportunity to talk with Joy Hays of NeoSpire Managed Hosting. We asked her about NeoSpire's hosting, support of our camp and what they see for the future of NeoSpire and Drupal, including their plans for a New Orleans Drupal Summit this Fall.

Who is NeoSpire? What do you do?

Drawing from leaders in the Drupal community as well as our own experience hosting large-scale Drupal environments, NeoSpire has engineered hosting solutions optimized to meet the needs of any enterprise…from new projects to established enterprises taking advantage of Drupal’s amazing scalability.  Specifically tuned to provide the best performance using established open-source technologies like Varnish, APC, and Memcached; our configurations have been battle-tested on the highest-profile Drupal deployments. NeoSpire’s managed hosting expertise allows you to focus on your core site development with the capcity to scale as far as your business can take you.

Why are you supporting DrupalCamp Twin Cities? 

As a proud member of the Drupal community, NeoSpire is committed to contributing to the advancement of Drupal whenever possible and has happily been a part of several Drupal conferences and camps over the years.  This year, we are proud to support DrupalCamp TwinCities for the first time!  The user testing for D8 that is being conducted during the camp really is exciting.  The fact that the community has such an impact on the growth and direction of Drupal is what makes it so great.  We love that the more we learn about Drupal, the more we get to share.

What's next for NeoSpire and Drupal?     

NeoSpire was proud to co-host the SouthWest Drupal Summit in Houston this past January.  We love having the opportunity to interact with the Drupal community and learn and share best practices.  Throughout the course of 2011 we plan on attending and/or presenting at several prominent Drupal events and Camps.  We are in the early phases of developing a Drupal Webinar focused on Drupal in the Enterprise for release this summer, and are in the planning stage of organizing a Drupal-specific summit in New Orleans this December.
