There are many moving parts when it comes to hosting any website - database tuning, caching layers, Drupal patches and settings, monitoring, backup, staging and more. Your website is more than content and design, its a 24x7 IT operations process. Do you have the resources to build and maintain this internally or a via third party hosting provider? That's where Acquia comes in. Our Drupal operations and support experts are available 24x7 to make sure your site performs and scales, so you don't have to.

  • 6. Who’s Using Acquia Hosting?
    Acquia is staffed with very knowledgeable Drupal experts . With previous Drupal support providers, we would endure these protracted support cycles, suffering lengthy periods of downtime.
    Our initial Drupal team simply weren’t experienced at preparing an iron-clad architecture that could withstand traffic intensive demands. Acquia is clearly experienced, and has specific strategies, testing procedures, and monitoring tools to ensure we can handle traffic loads today, tomorrow, and next year.
    Acquia has demonstrated superior expertise in a very simple way – they excel at discovering and solving problems immediately.
