Developing applications on Acquia Cloud

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

The principal parts of a Drupal application are the following:
