Achieving Continuous Integration with Drupal

Creating killer websites is hard, but deploying them shouldn’t be.

Developing and deploying web sites is best accomplished using a methodology called Continuous Integration (CI). By working in small batches, testing constantly, and automating all testing and deployment tasks, you can avoid big surprises and painful deployment experience. However, achieving a true Continous Integration development process requires building and maintaining a highly automated infrastructure. You can build such a system yourself, or with Acquia Cloud you can be up and running in a few minutes.

Acquia's Dev Cloud web platform - my first impressions [Jan 12, 2012]

I have to admit that I love to tinker with things. When I started playing with Linux first about 10 years ago, I realized that here was a "toy" that I'd be able to enjoy for a long, long time. I've often worked on server configuration and always had a lot of fun making servers work for big sites.

That said, I took Acquia's Dev Cloud for a spin and really like it. No hassles, it really has to be the simplest high-traffic ready system I've ever used.

If you don't know Dev Cloud, its a Drupal specific web hosting system. You get three separate "server environments" for each site - development, testing and live production. There is a web-based deployment tool to manage these environments. There are also some nice extras, like support, Apache Solr search and a handful of web services that you can use with your sites.

In my next post I'll go over how you get your site running on Dev Cloud and some of the best practices that we've found using it.

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.

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!

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.

Buy Dev Cloud by the Month!

You can now buy Acquia Dev Cloud by the month! The response to Dev Cloud has been tremendous, and we wanted to make it even easier for you try out. Spin up a Drupal server of any size and get your site online in minutes using Acquia's professionally-tuned servers.

New Acquia Dev Cloud documentation release!

I’ve been at Acquia as the Director of Engineering Services for 8 weeks, and I’m really excited to announce a new release of the Dev Cloud documentation! In two short months we re-architected the Dev/Managed Cloud docs from end-to-end making it easier for you to find what you need. I was so impressed with the folks who helped us pull this off so quickly. Not only were changes implemented to add new functionality to the documentation pages themselves, but the Engineers heroically endured my “friendly following up” to ensure all material was reviewed.

Anyone who thinks cloud isn't displacing jobs should talk with Dries Buytaert, co-founder and CTO of Acquia, a Drupal-based PaaS. During a panel on the future of cloud, he said one of the largest media and entertainment companies has moved a bunch of sites to the Acquia service and let go the "entire IT team" that was running those sites. Word to the wise: If your job title is "Web master" at Acme Corp., watch out.
