Drupal End of Life Answers

Drupal End-of-Life Answers

Drupal 7 will be end-of-life in November 2021, Drupal 9 will be released in 2020, and Drupal 8 will be end-of-life in November 2021.

Selecting the right upgrade path or technology transition is time sensitive. Fruition is guiding enterprises through the EOL process today. The solutions include going from Drupal 7 to 8, from Drupal 7 to 9, and custom solutions using Symfony or standardized migrations to WordPress. The correct solution largely depends on your current Drupal setup its scale and scope of the services that it runs.

Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 Migrations

Drupal 6 migrations

Drupal 6 is now more than two years past its End of Life (“EOL”) of Feb 24, 2016. Not too far off is the EOL for Drupal 7. While Drupal 7 has a few years left it is time start the process of migrating to the next iteration. For Drupal 6 sites there are no longer security updates released. It is critical that your website(s) migrate off of Drupal 6 as soon as possible. Fruition has performed 90+ Drupal 6 migrations. Drupal 6 to WordPress, Drupal 7 or Drupal 8 migrations can range from fairly simple to significant redevelopment projects that we’re here to help guide you through.

Decoupled Drupal Website and App Development

Use Drupal as the brains for decentralized applications

Fruition excels at complex decoupled applications that often leverage Drupal as the core of the product. Many of our complex projects involve interacting with dozens if not hundreds of data sources, millions of users, dozens or hundreds of different levels of permissions, all while keeping the website and associated native applications loading fast, secure, and error free. This new way of development referred to as the JAMstack (JavaScript, APIs, Markup) enables fully decoupling from monolithic applications to create insanely fast experiences for users at massive scale. For a reference on decoupled Drupal sites read “How to decouple Drupal in 2019.”

Mission Critical Drupal Builds

If your business depends on Drupal, then lean on Fruition

To do this, we often leverage Drupal, an enterprise-level framework used to build many high-level websites including, The Economist, certain sections of eBay, and certain sections of Amazon.com. Using Drupal as our enterprise-level framework of choice allows Fruition’s developers to get new projects off the ground fast.

Hosting Drupal with Kubernetes

Modern Drupal Hosting with Fruition’s Cloud Solution

Fruition’s Drupal hosting environment supports mission critical Drupal applications. Fruition is cloud agnostic to avoid cloud provider lock-in at AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud. By leveraging Kubernetes we’re able to distribute our own and our client’s workloads to the appropriate cloud provider. With our primary workload being placed on Google Cloud we’re able to scale for even the largest Drupal sites with many thousands of concurrent connections. All while maintaining security best practices and ensuring data integrity.

Drupal 9 Planning

Drupal 8 EOL and Drupal 9 Planning Are Happening

There’s not always a clear path of migration between major Drupal releases. At Fruition we’ve taken our experience upgrading sites and written a white paper to help guide you down the right technology path. The decision maybe going from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9 or it maybe going from Drupal 7 to another platform.  We’re big believers in Drupal when it fits the problem that our clients are trying to solve. We’re even bigger believers in finding the right solution for your business.
