Acquia Cloud is a Drupal development sandbox with an epic suite of powerful tools, it provides us our own Development and Staging environment and that too with a Drag-and-Drop feature to deploy code and content. Acquia cloud in its free plan provides the 500 MB space for the code storage, 500 MB for files storage and another 500 MB for database, and if we require more space than we can upgrade the plan that along with the space provides other cool features like adding custom domain and other customization too. so as we have discussed about its features now lets start with the process of setting up the site on Acquia cloud:
