Product intro

Drupal 8 is a partial modernisation of the legacy Drupal CMS with a few parts of Symfony under the hood. Usability improvements were not the focus and to the end user Drupal 8 is very much like Drupal 7.

Sulu is a new take on content management. It has been started from scratch using an existing content repository.

Main advantages
  • Based on stable legacy with critical APIs in place
  • A large number of ready made modules (for Drupal 7)
  • Large mass of developers brings stability for purchasers
  • Clean architecture based on Full Symfony Full Stack Framework
  • Uses ready made components such as CMF, PHPCR
  • Clean user interface
Main disvantages
  • A custom architecture based on Symfony Components, proprietary module structure
  • Usability of admin interface not very good and remains tightly coupled to Drupal
  • Suspect to security issues due to custom implementation and popularity (see Drupalgeddon)
  • Limited adoption
  • A new product, there are use cases not covered yet
  • Initial setup and flexibility requires expert developers
