Drush configuration and aliases

The drush directory is intended to contain drush configuration that is not site or environment specific.

Site specific drush configuration lives in sites/[site-name].

Site aliases

For remote environments

You should add the Drush aliases for any remote environments (such as Acquia Cloud) to the sites directory. This allows developers to access remote environments using simple aliases such as drush @mysite.dev uli. Note that if you are using Acquia Cloud, developers can also download these aliases manually from their Insight account, but providing them with the project makes everyone’s life a little easier.

You can find these aliases for Acquia Cloud sites by logging into https://accounts.acquia.com and going to the Credentials tab on your user profile. Download and place the relevant alias file into sites.
