Acquia Cloud is the CMS Critic 2013 Winner for Best Cloud CMS

Today, Acquia was named the 2013 People's Choice Winner for Best Cloud CMS by CMS Critic. Cloud CMS was a new category added in 2013, to recognize the momentum of the modern, cloud-native CMS, like Acquia Cloud. From the announcement:

For a cloud CMS to be effective, the services need to be managed well, offer regular updates and security maintenance, have excellent technical support and high availability. These are separate from the typical requirements of a standard CMS and therefore, we felt it justified having this new category this year.

Warner Music runs over 100+ of their artist sites on Acquia Cloud. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York served over 30,000 concurrent web visitors on Acquia Cloud during Hurricane Sandy. Timex serves hundreds of thousands of search queries a month on Acquia Cloud. And Acquia Cloud served over 400 million hits to on the night of award show.

When resiliency matters, companies run their Drupal sites on Acquia Cloud. 

And Acquia Cloud goes well beyond hosting: It takes the guess work out of Drupal hosting with elegant developer tools, a Drupal-tuned stack, elastic resources, and 24x7 monitoring by Acquia's world-class operations team. Developers benefit from integrated continuous integration support. By working in small code updates, testing constantly, and using automation, developers avoid the big surprises and painful experiences associated with manual deployment and testing processes. 

Here's what CMS Critic had to say about Acquia Cloud: 

Acquia's open cloud platform delivers scalability, security, and high performance for your Drupal sites. Acquia Cloud is the only solution that helps everyone from professional developers to large enterprises achieve success in Drupal application lifecycle management."

So, we're thrilled to see Acquia Cloud recognized as the Best Cloud CMS by CMS Critic. And best of all, anyone can try it out for free at
