Acquia

If you are running a very small blog, then Acquia will be overkill for your use.

Contentful

Contentful is perfectly suited to global apps running in the cloud that need to download the latest content, images, text or media, as well as support versions of the content, entries and entry types as apps grow. The massive benefit is also that you can reuse the content anywhere you want in any app or any facility you can imagine once it is in the system.

I'm very satisfied with the performance, reliability, easy-to-use interface for deployment of Acquia network. My team is more productive after having migrated to Acquia network.

Alternatives Considered

  1. Setting up a local development environment with Drupal is easy and cheap
  2. Setting up an efficient development/deployment process is easy.
  3. Theming SharePoint is extremely difficult.
  4. Many SharePoint modules (aka webparts) are quirky and don't work as expected.
  5. Lists and libraries are quirky and also often do not work as expected.
  6. SharePoint is slow and does not give you real access to the database that powers it.

Contentful is easy and fast and cheap. I went from zero experience to loading data out of my contentful space in about an hour or more. The cost is very reasonable and compared to options like CloudCMS are a fraction of the cost. The benefit is that with a lower cost entry point, you are more likely to try it out and find new ways to use it.
