You'll appreciate just what an amazing setup this is. We were
an "early adopter" of DevCloud and have nothing but good
things to say about it!
Whilst it's pretty straight forward to set up your own LAMP
stack, this level of performance tuning and multi-environment setup is
*really* hard to get right. Throw in Acquia Search, Mollom, New Relic
Monitoring and version control and there's no looking back.
Being able to host multiple smaller clients on the same server (and
a server we can select the size of) is the big selling point for us.
This level of high performance environment is now affordable - we
couldn't have considered this before when the only option was
It's also reassuring to know that there are real Drupal
experts at the hosting centre who aren't going to turn round and
say "it's something in the application layer, we can't
help with that".
Congratulations Barry and the team on a great product!
