Acquia Experience Platform provides the foundation for Drupal Cloud

New to Drupal Cloud, the Acquia Experience Platform includes Acquia CMS, Site Studio and Cloud IDE. All run on the Acquia Cloud Platform, the only Kubernetes-native, autoscaling cloud platform for digital experiences. The platform includes:

  • Acquia CMS: a brand new CMS that harnesses cutting-edge capabilities from the Drupal community in a simple, out-of-the-box experience. Acquia CMS harnesses learnings from thousands of successful customer deployments, with pre-built content types, roles, and permissions to speed marketers’ time to delivery.
  • Acquia Site Studio: the only no-code tool available within an enterprise CMS, empowering anyone to build websites without the need for technical expertise. Includes pre-set components and design templates to ensure brand consistency.
  • Acquia Cloud IDE: purpose-built development environment for Drupal to expedite development timelines and reduce barriers to entry for Drupal development.

To help customers unlock the power of the Acquia Experience Platform, Acquia Migrate is a new UI to update Drupal 7 sites to Drupal 9 up to 80% faster for sites with minimal custom code.
