Acquia

How much money do you have, and how much support do you need?Those are the biggest questions that you need to ask yourself when determining if you want to procure Acquia services. The cost for us was low compared to paying our own employees to run the type of system provided to us by Acquia. But the cost would be much higher for non-enterprise customers who are just looking to have their sites hosted for them. In the end, you get what you pay for - world-class Drupal hosting backed by highly effective customer support.

Jadu CMS

Jadu is well suited for larger organizations that require many content owners and editors. It provides levels of access from editor to administrator across all the sites and pages. Be sure to select similar features to compare the product to its competitors to ensure that their are not any key features that may be missing for your Jadu implementation.

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

I decided not to give it a 10 because I don't know what else is out there in terms of CMS products, and there's a bias when you've only been exposed to one product. At my current job, I used Jadu sparingly but it's easy to get reacquainted with the software and the look and feel of the CMS

For the common user, Jadu is very easy to use and to understand. For the more complex user/administrator, there's a lot of power to be harnessed in HTML editing, creating widgets, editing styles, creating workflows, and other advanced features Jadu can work up for the customer.

Acquia is more fully featured and mature.

Compared to WordPress, Jadu provides excellent rights and access management. It can be fined tuned at any level to get the options right to just what you are looking for. It is not quite as user friendly or able to be updated as WordPress but may be better for larger organizations or implementations.
