SendGrid and Pantheon Partner to Bring Cloud-Based Transactional Email to Drupal Developers

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) -  SendGrid, the leader in email deliverability, today announced the company has partnered with all-in-one Drupal platform Pantheon. The partnership gives developers building websites on Pantheon's breakthrough Drupal platform the ability to access SendGrid as an integrated offering for scalable, reliable delivery of transactional email.

With the partnership of Pantheon and SendGrid, Drupal developers can now power their website's transactional email, which has become a cornerstone of customer acquisition and a retention tool for modern websites and Web applications. SendGrid relieves development teams of the cost and complexity of managing transactional email management infrastructure, freeing them to build great websites or applications without worrying about email delivery rates, spam folders, ISP blacklists or scaling to meet high user volume.

"Email deliverability can be a concern for developers, costing time, effort and taking resources away from core website development priorities," said Josh Koenig, Pantheon's co-founder and evangelist. "SendGrid's work within the development community is unmatched, with many of today's most trafficked websites and broadly adopted Web applications relying on the service to ensure site or app-triggered emails are reaching users. We're pleased to offer SendGrid as the first email deliverability service within the Pantheon ecosystem."

Pantheon, the largest Drupal infrastructure in the world, supports developers in building, testing and hosting their Drupal-based websites. Based on a modern Web scale infrastructure, Pantheon's solutions deliver on the promise of "smooth scaling in software," with no architectural changes, eliminating the hidden risks and costs of traditional hosting models. Drupal, the world's fastest growing CMS, powers more than 1.5 million websites globally. 

"Our partnership with Pantheon represents another significant stride in making SendGrid easily available and accessible for developers, especially those that are embracing sophisticated, high-growth development platforms such as Drupal," said Isaac Saldana, Co-Founder and President, SendGrid. "Pantheon has emerged as the leading Drupal platform-as-a-service offering and we expect them to see continued appreciation by developers looking for an open alternative for website testing, building and deployment."

SendGrid's partnership with Pantheon is part of the company's ongoing strategy to make its service widely available, easy to access and simple to deploy, regardless of what cloud services development teams are building, testing or hosting with. SendGrid is also available as an integrated service with Heroku, Engine Yard, Microsoft Azure, HP Cloud Services, Softlayer, Rackspace, CloudBees, cloudControl and AppHarbor, among others.

Interested parties can learn more about SendGrid and Pantheon by visiting SendGrid's partner page. Pantheon and SendGrid will also attend DrupalCon Portland 2013 on May 20-24 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Ore. Attendees can visit booth 107-109 to learn more about the partnership.
