Minimize Expenses with Drupal 8

Development and maintenance times for Drupal 8 can be strongly optimized, saving 20% or even 30% development cost for smaller websites thanks to using the tools wisely and using ready-built distros for lower start. The hosting, however, can not be the same as it used to be for Drupal 7. Having a cheaper hosting will mean higher maintenance times, which is not worth it. Hosting needs to be optimal, even though somewhat more expensive.

Why Drupal 8 is not for Small Websites

Now it has happened. In his DrupalCon Vienna keynote presentation, Dries Buytaert, the Drupal trademark owner, has announced, that “Drupal is no longer for small websites.” At the same time, he said he is offended, when people say Drupal is only for the “Enterprise” websites now. This does seem wrong to me in a number of ways. Now, after about two years of experience working with Drupal 8 in larger and smaller businesses, I think there is both truth and inconsistency in what Dries has said. So let’s sort things out.
