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.

OpenShift

OpenShift is well suited in most cases. They provide 1GB of free space upon sign up. Customer support is also quick and responsive. Recent server movement from Jboss servers to a more complex server system has made things a bit difficult but still, it is great and one of the better tools in the market.

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

Leverage OpenShift Online constantly at both the free and paid tiers. While AWS is convenient, it often brings more administration than I want to deal with for a quick application (i.e. Drupal or Wordpress blog). OpenShift also simplifies the DNS registration and ability to share application environments with team members

It is easy to understand. Gives our team freedom to focus on the quality of our coding and not worry too much about build and deployment which honestly can be a headache for some of us. Also, customer support is fast and responsive so we don't have to wait for weeks for issues to get fixed.

Their customer support team is good and quick to respond. On a couple of occassions, they have helped us in solving some issues which we were finding a tad difficult to comprehend. On a rare occasion, the response was a bit slow but maybe it was because of the festival season. Overall a good experience on this front.

Alternatives Considered

Acquia

We evaluated multiple content management solutions, and Drupal was the best fit for our needs.

OpenShift

I found OpenShift and IBM Bluemix to be very similar, however in terms of our use case, we were not using these tools to create a production ready environment, these were to be able to create dev environments which could be torn down and spun up again quickly to give maximum flexibility. Both products provided this, but ultimately OpenShift was better suited to our needs, the user interface is easier to navigate and developers found it quicker to get to grips with.

OpenShift

  • It has made things more easily accessible to everyone.
  • Customer support is good so we didn't need to hire any extra representatives to handle issues.
  • Gives us the freedom to focus on code rather than deployment. Except for a few scenarios where it's been difficult to understand, it is good for anyone with decent experience.
