For clients in the United Kingdom, Acquia has announced the introduction of its new Drupal Cloud hosting service. For enterprises affected by Brexit that wish to keep their Drupal databases in-country, a London data center offers in-country hosting. This service would especially appeal to UK government agencies and enterprises who do business with the government.
“Brexit has caused many organizations to rethink data localization strategies,” said Steve Williamson, General Manager, Acquia EMEA. “To support our customers in this region, we now offer the same high availability and multi-region failover capabilities as we do at our other hosting solutions around the world.”
Acquia’s new Drupal Cloud offering is a modular experience platform that lets users create and deploy applications across any digital channel. With a 99.95 percent uptime SLA, multi-zone availability for built-in redundancy, and multi-region failover clusters for better robustness, enterprises can guarantee that their digital applications are extremely available with Drupal Cloud hosting. Acquia also has regional data centers in Ireland, Germany, Singapore, Australia, Japan, and China, in addition to London.
Drupal Application Migration
The Acquia Digital Experience Platform (DXP) uses open-source Drupal as its foundation to enable marketers, developers, and IT operations teams at thousands of worldwide enterprises to quickly build and deploy digital goods and services.
Acquia Platform Migration Services are available to Acquia clients that wish to transfer Drupal applications to the UK with no downtime. These allow an Acquia Professional Services Technical Architect to oversee configuration, testing, and other aspects of a Drupal application migration to guarantee a smooth and efficient transition.
