Acquia

Acquia is well-suited for any Drupal web platform. I think it best plays in the enterprise space, either for B2B or nonprofit/higher ed/government. Acquia is a great solution for smaller web platforms, as well, but the price is typically prohibitive in these scenarios.

Magento Commerce Cloud works great for us, an ecommerce company. Any other company (of decent size) should consider Magento. They offer many features right out of the box and allow a ton of customization as well as easy integration with third party vendors. I could imagine that if you were a smaller company, Magento would likely be overkill for your online store.

Pros

  • Simplifies installation of Drupal sites with one-click installations.
  • Development, staging, and production environments for a best-practice web development.
  • Access to git repos, databases, and backups that are all managed within the interface.

  • You can do SO much with Magento (that can cause it to be highly overwhelming). It allows for a lot of custom development so you can accomplish the goals you want to achieve with your site.
  • Creating simple promotions (such as 10% coupon codes for signing up for your emails or Free Shipping codes) is really easy to execute and test. You can create your own codes or auto-generate codes with a set character count (or specific prefix/suffix) and set effective & end dates.
  • Creating a new subcategory and adding products you already have loaded is really easy and efficient.

Cons

  • Continuous integration, code testing.
  • Additional access options.

  • More information regarding platform updates. Recently moved to a 2.0 and there is much that needs to be transitioned.
  • Easier integration of customer order notification feature.
  • Simpler, reliable security integrations with CloudFlare.
  • Simpler importing for new products. A lot of back-end cleanup is required.

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

Alternatives Considered

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

Magento is not technically a master of any portion of building an ecommerce webpage but it certainly is very good at a lot of things which ultimately was the deciding factor. Primarily its versatility was above that of the other choices. Wordpress created beautiful content efficiently but it wasn't so strong on the ecommerce side. Square Space was great but had its capacity limitations and is more equipped to aid smaller businesses. Magento was also the best priced for how effective it was against the group.

Return on Investment

  • Increased speed
  • Better security
  • Faster time to market

  • Inventory Management is OK but not great. Each Magento upgrade tinkers with the settings.
  • Having unreliable product information due to complicated uploading systems.
  • In regards to brand perception, resources, and sampling, we saw major success.
