Cloud Platform

Developing applications on Cloud Platform

After you have created or imported an application on Cloud Platform, you can use the powerful features of the Acquia platform to develop, test, maintain, and update your website, including the Cloud Platform interface, the Cloud Platform API, Drush, and more.

The principal parts of a Drupal application are the following:

  • Codebase: Drupal’s core modules, contributed modules, and your custom code

  • Database: Stores the application’s content and configuration

  • Files: Images, digital assets, and user-uploaded files

Using the Cloud Platform interface, you can manage the development and testing of these elements on your Development and Staging environments before deploying them to your live application in the Production environment.
