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.

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.

  • The content management framework has been built very nicely and it completely stands up to the promise that it makes of being the best in the market. Not that I've tried all of the other products, but choices ruin decision making and I'm sticking to this one.
  • They are constantly working towards bettering themselves and that's the promise I need from my content management platform company. Reiterate and improvise.
  • APIs are one of my greatest accomplishments that this product has as they are extensively available and are very developer friendly.

Cons

  • It was difficult getting Varnish caches to clear because we used a CDN.
  • Their highest tiers can be quite expensive.
  • They leverage a Drupal multi-site, but a distro-based solution such as the one offered by Pantheon is more enterprise ready.

  • We had a little bit of an inconvenience with the User Interface content display of some of the pages on the portal, but we're sure that will be taken care of in the near future.
  • Actual implementation for out of the box product test drive was a little time-consuming. With the help of the support team, it was all good. Would be good if we wouldn't need to contact anyone in the future though.
  • Documentation could be better.
