Acquia Cloud By the (Big) Numbers

The Acquia Cloud continues to flourish! We set new records in the last month, thanks to our customers' exceptional Drupal sites, delivering 1 billion page views from Managed Cloud and Dev Cloud alone. When you add in Drupal Gardens, it amounts to over 100 terabytes of content! We’ve set performance records for individual sites as well. A customer’s recently-launched Acquia Cloud site delivered over 25,000 requests/second during realistic load testing — the equivalent of over 1 million unique visitors in a single day.

But after a year of repeated problems with stability and scalability, TNS and our team decided to migrate to Acquia Commons, an open-source, enterprise-scale social business software platform from Acquia, a company that enables enterprises to use the open-source Web content management/social publishing system Drupal. The collaborative environment includes blogs, wikis, calendars and other capabilities that enable social networking.

Acquia Commons allowed TNS to quickly build our complex Website while adhering to our strict brand guidelines, a tight timeline and budget constraints, as well as maintaining the flexibility needed to support strategic requirements. The platform provided many community features implemented out of the box (such as relationships, user points, badges) and made it easy to add features, such as member discussions enhanced with a rating and reward system. We also chose to host the site on the Acquia Managed Cloud. Commons helped get Stars Insight, our social community Website, off the ground quickly and easily, and provided us with a whole tool box of quantitative market research.

This leaves organizations hosting in the cloud with two options: Overpay for physical servers you might rarely need, or underpay and suffer the consequences of failure. Whether failure comes in the form of brand and reputation damage, or in more hard opportunity cost dollars, the fact remains: failure costs too much.
