Acquia has been a great platform for us. We're continuing to build out our site and the platform is letting us easily expand. The next big digital project is translating and localizing our site into 19 additional languages. With plugins, the Acquia platform is letting us do this with relative ease.

Lately, their lack of support and monitoring has soured me on the platform. After all, if you can't count on them during a crisis you need to consider other options.

If your organization requires you to implement a multi-site architecture, Acquia is one of the few cloud hosting options that makes this easy for Drupal websites. You can easily create a new database through their web UI, update your site's files, and add domains to each environment. This process is simplified even further through the use of another product, Acquia Cloud Site Factory.

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.

In my experience, if you have a talented team of Drupal developers or even a single Drupal developer who has a firm grasp of Drupal, and you are an enterprise-level business or entity, there is no better solution out there. Although I failed to mention cost previously, which is certainly a consideration. If you are serious about your site and you have thousands or hundreds of thousands of site-visitors, the cost may not be an obstacle. For smaller organizations, or non-profits/NGOs, the cost may be prohibitive and you may want to explore a less expensive vendor, such as my second-choice, Pantheon, or even RackSpace (I live in San Antonio, and a good portion of the San Antonio Drupal User's Group is made up of some extremely talented Drupal developers; so I had to include them in here somewhere).

For mid to large companies trying Drupal for the first time, Acquia provides a strong support and educational system to better understand the needs of the platform. Longer term, there can be some strain when comparing on-premise or unmanaged costs with their cost tiers.

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.

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.

the scenarios are many where Acquia Cloud fits. No matter if you are a community site and want to get a free platform. No matter if you are a single developer who wants to make use of the development workflow for his clients or a multinational enterprise that is handling all it's projects on the cloud.
