Acquia Dev Cloud +1
Acquia Dev Cloud just keeps getting better as the team here cranks out new features and responds to customer feedback. Early users' biggest complaints were around the lack of Documentation and not having native Git support. Done and done.
Dev Cloud was designed to be a self-service Platform as a Service to give professional developers access to the same battle-tested environment that is used by our Acquia Managed Cloud customers. But to make that a reality, we needed to enable folks with the information necessary to be successful. Stellina McKinney, our Director of Engineering Services, made this a reality with the release of Dev Cloud documentation. Check out her announcement, and please don’t hesitate to share your feedback!
And Git. Well, we got Git. Watch Barry Jaspan, the Dev Cloud rockstar himself, demonstrate using Git with Dev Cloud during a recent webinar, Improving the Drupal Developer Experience with Dev Cloud, Managed Cloud and the Acquia Network. Using the Dev Cloud workflow UI accessed through the Acquia Network, you can now manage and deploy your site from development to staging to production with your choice of either Git or Subversion version control. It's that easy. (Thanks Barry!)
But there's more... You can also now buy Dev Cloud by the month and we've also added the option of Amazon c1.medium instance types, which help bridge a gap we had from both a price and performance perspective. Check out the pricing page to configure your Dev Cloud today. Not quite sure... use 1STMOFREEDC coupon code to get a month free to try it out for yourself. And please do tell me what you think!
