Setting the Stage: Hosting a Decoupled Drupal site
We’ve launched many websites with Acquia, but a recent project for the ski industry is especially notable and worth spending some time with. Over the next month, through a series of posts, we will take a deep dive into decoupled Drupal. With our hosting partner, we will outline how Elevated Third, Hoorooh Digital, and Acquia worked together to create a decoupled site for the Powdr Resorts, one of the largest ski operators in North America.
Corey Wood, Technical Account Manager at Acquia, starts us off with...
Part 1: Setting the Stage: Hosting a Decoupled Drupal site.
Powdr Ski Resorts was facing a familiar challenge: the websites in their network of ski resorts were on a collection of disparate content management systems, which made it difficult to govern their digital properties across multiple brands and sites. Powdr needed a digital solution that provides each brand in the Powdr family the flexibility required to deliver customized web experience for their users.
Powdr turned to Elevated Third, Hoorooh Digital, and Acquia to build and design the first in the next generation of sites, a Decoupled Drupal 8 site for Boreal Mountain Resort. Elevated Third spearheaded the decoupled Drupal development; Hoorooh Digital supported the website’s frontend design; Acquia provided the cloud hosting, the technical account manager, and 24/7 global support.
This series will detail how the three teams worked together to bring the project to the finish line.
But first, a refresher.
