It is particularly useful for quickly setting up environments that need significant customization and set up for continuous delivery. I would say Acquia is less appropriate for smaller scale sites that wouldn't necessarily need the separated environments.

Magento Commerce Cloud (formerly Magento)

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.

  • Magento's database really handles large amounts of data very well and is very scalable.....I actually only recommend Magento for larger ecommerce websites because I know it will easily scale to the needs.
  • Magento has an incredible support system with it's community of open-source developers .
  • Magento has many built in features that many other open-source ecommerce platforms don't have out of the box. And extending on those features is easy with extensions.
  • Of course you can't go wrong with the fact that the Community Edition of Magento is open-source, meaning free to download and use!

Cons

  • This is a difficult question for me to answer, as I have seen the platform mature over the past few years and they recently, 3-6 months ago revamped their admin UI web interface that addressed some of their previous shortcomings. I don't ever have any difficulty finding what I need, when I need it on the admin UI. My first suggestion would be to review their documentation in some areas, which are still linked to the previous iteration of the web interface.
  • The majority of the services offered by Acquia Cloud Hosting are built on top of Amazon Web Services. As a result, some SSL certificates do not work well, or at all if they originate from Network Soutions (which have never worked), or GeoTrust (Equifax), VeriSign, and DigiCert, which on occasion produce SSL certificates that fail to work on Acquia Cloud.
  • Recently I have found that team management has a couple of limitations when the client is the "Organization administrator," and the role of "Team administrator" is assigned to myself or a member of my team. There are some links and page options that should be available to those of us assigned the role of Team Lead or Senior Developer within the Team Management structure, but we have had to contact support to update our permissions to be granted the appropriate access. It may be a result of their recent upgrade to the site, and regardless, support was able to fix our issue the same day we submitted a request.

  • Magento's "out of the box" solution (pre-internal development) has odd areas that are negatively affected by a lack of intuitive user options. For example, there are no means by which to assign a priority to products within a category page. The "default" sorting option for pages only allows for a few specific sort orders, with no available customization.
  • The Magento Admin Panel as it relates to customer service is time-consuming and less than intuitive. It is often easier for CS Agents to "back into" a customer account to place an order on the site, rather than processing the orders through a more robust or usable Magento Admin portal.
  • As a non-IT/Dev user, Magento errors messaging can be confusing, requiring translation from individuals or support staff.

Drupal is designed to grow with our changing needs and technology trends. Our hope is that as new features are needed, we'll be able to adapt as we grow

Magento is well-supported by a big development team at eBay, which not only addresses bug reports very quickly, but also is constantly working on improvements to the platform. The wealth of Magento third party modules ensures that the platform will be up to date with future changes to
Payment or ERP systems.
Security is always a concern and with the Zend framework as a foundation, Magento has had very few security-related patches since I have started to work with it

Alternatives Considered

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

The only platform listed above that competes with Magento in full functionality is Demandware, in my opinion. However, Demandware is even more development resource intensive than Magento. NetSuite has several realms of customization, but their API is quite limited. Shopify, BigCommerce, and 3dcart all are simpler, lower-end options compared to Magento. Less overall functionality, scaleability, and integration capability compared to Magento as well.
