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.

Open Orchestra is an Open Source CMS built on the full stack framework. For database it uses a MongoDB, a NoSQL store rather than the more typical Relational Databases such as MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Main advantages
  • Open Source CaaS option
  • Corporate backing from Acquia
  • Flexibility and extensibility
  • Full Stack Symfony implementation with focus on code quality
  • NoSQL MongoDB backend allows high performance
  • Clean admin UI with drag & drop layout management
Main disvantages
  • A young, unproven product
  • Complexity of hosting (compared to pure CaaS)
  • Unable to leverage full Drupal ecosystem
  • Fairly unknown and not widely adopted
  • Quite dependent on the efforts of a single company
  • Documentation not the best (REST API, for example)
