Drupal is a free and open source modular framework and Content Management System (CMS) that allows an individual or a community of users to easily publish, manage, and organize their website.
There is no software licensing fee that is required for using Drupal. In essence you will be getting the basic building blocks of your website for free! The modular nature of Drupal will reduce the implementation and on-going maintenance costs of running your website.
For the enterprise users or smaller business security and perfomance should be important. Drupal has been proven to be one of the most secure platforms available, secure enough to power the official website of the White House.
Whether you are large enterprise or only have a small website performance is important. Your visitors expect your website to load quickly. Studies have shown that slow loading websites will cause your visitors or potential customers to leave. Drupal shines in the area of performance. It has very small resource requirements and has several built-in features and other modules that can be configured to increase the speed further. The Grammy's showed the power of Drupal, being able to handle tens of thousands of concurrent users during the live show.
