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.

NVU

NVU is an easy self explanatory program that helps us edit the Landing Pages for the company for which I work. However, many of the features of being able to edit text & text boxes is out of date & very jumpy. I often have to rewrite sentences in order to fit better on a line because I can't adjust the text box without it messing up the entire Landing Page.

NVU

  • It allows me to easily create the Landing Pages for my company. I can easily create a copy of an NVU file & then rename it in order to create a new file. Then once I've made the necessary changes to the new file, I just drag & drop the new file into our backend to automatically upload to our site.
  • It allows me to edit text fairly easily. I can drag & drop the text within a text box.

Cons

Acquia

  • 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.

NVU

  • I can't widen a text box without it jumping & messing up the entire Landing Page.
  • I can't drag text from one text box into another.
  • The text settings change if I don't copy a word that already exists in a word box & paste it into the new line of text before starting to type a new sentence.
  • Sometimes I try to open a Landing Page to edit it & it says that NVU is unavailable & I have to close the program & try again.

Return on Investment

Acquia

  • Completely negated any dev time troubleshooting the platform, freeing us up to develop the website.

NVU

  • I think my boss has actually decided to stop using NVU to create & edit our webpages because of it's lack of updates & features for editing text.
  • It takes me a lot of time trying to adjust text boxes to get them to fit on the Landing Page correctly with the entire desired content.
