Architecture for Highly Unpredictable Traffic

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.

Acquia Managed Cloud and DIACAP

Acquia has submitted our first DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) package working with our customer, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) customer this past month.

Anyone who thinks cloud isn't displacing jobs should talk with Dries Buytaert, co-founder and CTO of Acquia, a Drupal-based PaaS.

Word to the wise: If your job title is "Web master" at Acme Corp., watch out.

Acquia, Drupal that never sleeps

I’ve only been with Acquia for three weeks as a intern and I have to say I love every moment of it. I work on the Operations and Hosting Engineering team and last week, my second week, I was placed on a on-call rotation for Operations. A on-call rotation is like being an E.R. Doctor though my patients were servers. You have to set up your phone and laptop to receive ‘critical’ notifications from our internal monitoring and notification system as well as be prepared with all the tools you could possibly need to handle any situation.
