Logo
Product intro

Reservoir is a Drupal 8 distribution focused on decoupled content management. It is developed by Acquia, the company providing enterprise grade Drupal hosting and solutions.

Joomla! is one of the big three PHP CMSes. Currently it uses only a single component from the Symfony project. Joomla remains a strong contender with a large number of users and extensions.

Main advantages
  • Open Source CaaS option
  • Corporate backing from Acquia
  • Flexibility and extensibility
  • Large developer and user base
  • Plenty of ready made extensions available
  • Tried and tested basic concepts

 

Main disvantages
  • A young, unproven product
  • Complexity of hosting (compared to pure CaaS)
  • Unable to leverage full Drupal ecosystem
  • Administration can be confusing
  • Lack of focus, tries to do everything
  • Codebase is a mix of old and new
