Omnichannel solutions provider Magento Commerce
has announced the launch of a cloud-based Magento service. Magento Commerce, which has headquarters in Campbell, California, United States, was established in 2008. The company caters to a global customer base of around 250,000 companies by providing “innovation to retailers, brands and branded manufacturers across retail B2C and B2B industries”. The company is the home to the widely utilized Open Source ecommerce platform of the same name and also offers a range of solutions that enable merchants to “successfully integrate digital and physical shopping experiences”. Magento Commerce’s new service, the Enterprise Cloud Edition, is a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment for Magento 2.0.
The Magento ecommerce solution is available free of charge and enables users to establish ecommerce sites of a range of complexities. The solution offers a range of themes that users can use to give their sites a unique look and feel. A global Magento community develops commercial and non-commercial modules that add functionality to Magento websites. The Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud and is built to “power innovative ecommerce experiences with the rapid deployment of fully customizable, secure and scalable web storefronts, combined with a leading hosting and managed services infrastructure”.
"Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition defines the post-SaaS commerce platform era,” explained Magento Commerce’s CEO, Mark Lavelle. “It's a first-of-its-kind in-market solution and a major differentiator in the broader Magento product portfolio. With this new platform running on AWS, we ensure that our merchants have the agility to respond to a rapidly changing environment, can continuously deploy innovations, easily scale to meet unexpected demand and don't have to worry about the day-to-day management of infrastructure."
"We are pleased to see that Magento has built its new commerce platform on top of AWS as we firmly believe that AWS offers merchants a flexible, secured, scalable and low-cost environment for online sales and retailing," added Amazon Web Services, Inc.’s General Manager Global Technology Partners, Hal Bennett. "We look forward to supporting Magento and their customers on their journey to the cloud."Do you know of any other providers that are offering Magento Commerce services? Let us know the details.
