Drupal, and especially Drupal 8, is an excellent foundation for a multisite ecosystem. Drupal’s core code is structured for integration with outside systems (such as an ad system, marketing platforms, tracking tools, and so on). It’s an extensible foundation that allows organizations to build and add functionality, rather than forcing organizations to tear down or undo previous work in order to accomplish new goals.

Examples of organizations that might benefit from Acquia Cloud Site Factory include a franchise, a real-estate company that creates new sites for each property and a large organization (such as a university or product group) with departments that each need their own sub-sites.
Simplifying Drupal Multisite Management
Through its feature-rich site templating system, Site Factory provides the ability to create new sites in a single click. This gives marketers the tools that they need to easily launch new experiences without the need to rely on their IT colleagues.
Templates ensure brand consistency throughout global elements of the platform, such as site navigation and information architecture, while giving marketers enough flexibility to deliver great experiences with every new site. All this together effectively allows marketers to bring new campaigns and content to market faster, and with a fraction of the technical overhead that launching stand-alone sites demands.
