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.

Acquia Managed Cloud: Highly Available Architecture for Highly Unpredictable Traffic

While most companies with business-critical sites can’t afford downtime, accurately predicting traffic every day is impossible. 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.

Brandon Tate of Appnovation writes, "Here at Appnovation, we frequently use the Acquia hosting platform for our clients. The Dev Cloud and Managed Cloud are impressive platforms that fit well for many Drupal sites being built today. I’ve listed some items below that have helped with the overall build quality and ease of use for these platforms."

Automate tests and more with Acquia Cloud Hooks

Acquia Dev Cloud is the Drupal cloud hosting platform for developers, and today I'm really psyched to announce availability of a frequently requested developer feature: Acquia Cloud Hooks. Of course, since Dev Cloud and Managed Cloud run on the same technology, Cloud Hooks are fully supported on Managed Cloud as well.

If you'd rather try Cloud Hooks instead of reading about them, you can sign up right now and use coupon code BJB111209 to get the first 30 days free.

Acquia seems to understand the current trend to push this out of the hands and heads of the overburdened IT operations shops and into the cloud at large.

Acquia Cloud UX improvements, free 30-day trials

We released Acquia Dev Cloud at Drupalcon Chicago and so far it has been an incredible success. Thousands of Drupal developers, small and large development shops, and businesses have been successfully building and deploying production Drupal sites on Dev Cloud for six months—and we have learned a ton from them about how to make the system even better. We've been pretty quiet for the last six months, but now we're ready to start talking!
