Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition Market Perspectives
Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition was first announced during Magento Imagine in April 2016 and since than it was heavily discussed and reviewed.
The technology stack and capabilities were unveiled by Magento itself and multiple community members. Besides, Magento provided us with the detailed technical documentation on deployment and usage just immediately after the release.
So, six month later we are examining its current position within the specific market segment of Enterprise PaaS and SaaS solutions.
The main idea behind Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition is to create a product combining the flexibility of cloud solutions without multitenancy constraints. Traditional SaaS product innovations mostly depend on the providers’ initiatives and can hardly be driven by merchants. Meanwhile, Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition allows store owners to tailor technologies to their business easily.
All the available patches on Git can be tested and implemented instantly after their uploads. As far as testing environments use same databases and settings all the tested changes can be easily pushed to live stores without any risks to fall over. That’s a really unique opportunity and huge advantage.
Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition consists of a bunch of effective solutions making the final product a great alternative to established enterprise platforms.
- Cloud Infrastructure. Powered by Amazon Web Services;
- Platform as a Service;
- Magento Enterprise Edition;
- Performance Management Tools. NewRelic, blackfire.io;
- Content Delivery Network, DDos Protection. Powered by Fastly.
This way, the dedicated structure of Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition provides all the benefits related to cloud computing, including flexibility, confidence, scalability, business focus and peace of mind.
Magento is actually a PaaS solution, but it have to compete with both PaaS and SaaS products and the number of worthy competitors is pretty large.
