Acquia

If your organization requires you to implement a multi-site architecture, Acquia is one of the few cloud hosting options that makes this easy for Drupal websites. You can easily create a new database through their web UI, update your site's files, and add domains to each environment. This process is simplified even further through the use of another product, Acquia Cloud Site Factory.

BloomReach

Well suited for companies with low levels of resources who can dedicate time to business tools to operate them. Or just companies who want tools they don't need to dedicate time and resources to (this is purely for the SEO widgets, no other tools are offered by Bloomreach). The SEO widgets would be less appropriate if you already have related products /searches/terms on your pages as they then might clash.

Pros

  • Deployment management is user friendly and developer extensible.
  • Rudimentary monitoring and logging is user friendly and accessible.
  • The Acquia team is on top of emerging threats, and where possible, silently mitigates the worst of them.

  • No manual resource required to operate SEO widgets. Self learning and updating.
  • Simple integration into System Architecture (with options)

Cons

  • "Scheduled" maintenance windows are often non-negotiable, vague and too abrupt.
  • The support escalation is slower than would be expected from a provider focused on enterprise availability.
  • The platform is rigidly composed in a way that serves Acquia's need to serve a wide customer base, and is thus sometimes not ideal for your use case.

  • We have occasionally seen old/removed products featured and linked in the Bloomreach widget, whereas you would only want live/active products linked - This led to 404 errors. Albeit this may be an issue in our integration as opposed to the tool - we are unsure.

As a Drupal Web Developer, I have not encountered or been exposed to any other hosting solution that could surpass the benefits of having a site hosted on Acquia Cloud. Although, for any side-project or low-cost freelance gigs, I cannot expect that I'll always have the option of recommending Acquia Cloud, and that's okay. While I am at work and trying to help our team gain more exposure to my companies' extensive list of clients, when we have the fortune of adding another Drupal-based client to our roster, getting those clients on Acquia Cloud makes every other aspect of building or modifying their school website that much easier

Acquia is a leader in managed Drupal hosting, knowledge and supporting infrastructure.

Google Analytics and Bloomreach have similarities in terms of discovering how customers shop on our website and looking at the conversation rate, bounce rate, etc. What I like about bloomreach is that it's more connected with our website I can see the data directly on it whenever I turn on the heat map functionally.

Return on Investment

  • Rapid prototyping and feature development is simpler with Drupal and the Acquia platform is simple to extend for experimental sites.
  • By leveraging the enterprise hosting platform, we could focus on the feature development during the initial build out of the site, deferring the hosting complexities to a time when we would have more bandwidth.

  • Helped with an increase in natural traffic, so we could make a saving on paid traffic activity
