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.

Pixpa

Pixpa is very well suited for professional photographers who are either run an independent photography business or those who seek opportunities to earn from their work online. The platform does not only fit the needs of a photographer, it is great for creative pros like creative designers, graphic designers, videographers, or painting artists. It now even supports integrated blogging for pro bloggers in any niche - travel blogging, photo blogging, lifestyle blogging, etc. The platform is purely for professionals and easy to set up.

Pros

  • The Acquia Cloud Hosting (enterprise) provides a three-server solution. You have a Development, Staging (or UAT), and Production servers with a clear path of deployment straight up the chain. You may use Acquia's own Cloud Hooks, or their web admin UI interface to deploy to any or all of the servers.
  • Git is one of the foundation services built-in to the management of the website codebase. Allowing a developer, or well-trained end user (university employee) to easily deploy a tag or branch to any one of the servers, makes it very easy for us to offload the server / account management to the school, while we focus on improving their site.
  • Not only does Acquia Cloud provide a multi-datacenter failover disaster recovery solution, but they also maintain a multi-region failover as well, which allows for a fully redundant enviroment to be maintained in two geographic regions. No fear of losing any database changes or form submissions from students.
  • Lastly, the onboarding process is constantly being improved, and as I have been a third-party vendor involved in many of our hosting negotiations, I have seen it firsthand. Each enterprise client is assigned a small team of engineers, technical leads, and a pseudo-project-manager to explain the process in layman's terms to the client (university / college for my example), but they also perform a number of code reviews and best-practice analysis of a site prior to launch.

  • Superb Gallery Management & Layouts
  • Add anything with just a drag of your favorite content block. There are more than 300 pre-built content blocks in the PageBuilder which allows you to build any kind of website you want.

Cons

  • Admin interface could use some work
  • I wish we could host non-Drupal stuff on the cloud
  • Node.js support would be great

  • Pixpa has a great interface for managing the content on website. But still it has further scope for improvement.
  • Another thing which seems to be missing is a mobile version of the app. It is currently available only for desktop. But they promised a mobile version soon.

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

A couple of reasons why they are best at support :
  • Wonderful staff.
  • Quick action on support tickets.
  • Turnaround time of merely 1-2 hours.

Alternatives Considered

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

I have previously used Wix and Squarespace to build my photography and design portfolio. But I think the way Pixpa portrays my photographs and designs is by far the best in the industry. Pixpa's primary focus revolves around showcasing my photographs and designs, and I see it by far the best in the industry. Moreover, my website loads pretty fast, and this acts as an advantage for them, since most of top website builders are struggling with slower site speed. Pixpa has a very easy interface and compelling templates, better than Squarespace and Wix (I think) along with pre-built content blocks which I can use to build any kind of custom page with the help of their awesome drag-and-drop PageBuilder tool. This saves a lot of my time.

Return on Investment

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

  • I had set up a custom editions site (customeditions.letternote.com) for my corporate gifting e-commerce business, LetterNote. I created the site using Pixpa's DIY builder with a purpose of showcasing our custom products and gain impressions from our target market. And thanks to Pixpa for their wonderful SEO capabilities and beautiful layouts that we had almost increased our sales by nearly 30%.
  • The pricing for which they provide such a wonderful platform is very pocket friendly and I actually had more returns than I invested in the product.
