Overall Satisfaction with Acquia Digital Experience Platform

We use it to host the Drupal Content management system for much of our site. This includes thousands of pages.
  • Low Down Time
  • Excellent Tech Support People
  • Good administrative interface
  • They replaced Acquia Dev Desktop with Acquia Cloud IDE which doesn't let you set up as many instances of Drupal.
  • Allows busy, short staffed court employees to add and update content easily.
  • Web developers spend less time fixing code broken by editors.
We were new to Drupal, so we had to have consultants set up the new Drupal site so that we could migrate static HTML pages. It took a few months before we could start migrating.
We get the memory and bandwidth resources we need and more. We've never had a problem scaling up.
We went with the platform that the state already had a contract with to save time with deployment, and it has worked out. It had been used and vetted by the Executive Branch.

Would you buy Acquia Digital Experience Platform again?


It is especially good for large sites with lots of traffic. The ability to easily give different workers different rights is very helpful. I wouldn't use it for a small site with little customization or traffic. The overhead with using Composer would be a bit much for those instances, though it is very helpful for complex sites.
