Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition
Saas era of ecommerce technology
Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition is classified as PaaS (Platform as a Service) rather than SaaS (Software as a Service). Unlike Saas, Paas provides you the access to source code. You can modify and customize your applications which is not possible with SaaS based ecommerce platforms like Demandware and Shopify.
Cloud Service Models
Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition provides number of tools to improve DevOps processes and make your website more stable including versioning, rapid deployment and continuous integration tools.
WHEN TO CONSIDER MAGENTO ENTERPRISE CLOUD EDITION?
If don’t have an internal development team and want to contract out the server infrastructure management. Also in case of development teams at different locations.
If having limited time to build own infrastructure, pre-packed platform lets you deploy your store faster than building your own
You want to simplify vendor management (assuming that Magento takes over control of partners solutions)
WHEN YOU’LL BE BETTER WITHOUT MAGENTO ENTERPRISE CLOUD EDITION?
All that features packed in the platform have costs and for some merchants, it may be an overkill to have them and pay for them. For example, if you focus on geo one market you don’t really need global availability; if your traffic has no spikes – scalability isn’t very valuable option for you. In this cases merchants can be better off financially to use more conventional hosting.
Another case may be the opposite – very sophisticated merchants with highly experienced tech team can build a bespoke solution that performs better in their particular case than built for everybody PaaS.
FEW OF OUR MAGENTO ENTERPRISE PROJECTS
THEY RAVE ABOUT US TOO
I was originally very skeptical about out-sourcing our web development to the US (I am based in the UK). However, 6 years in to our professional relationship, I am confident in saying that we made the right choice.
I had (and still have) the pleasure of working with Rave on our e-Comm site using Magento Enterprise. Their teams implemented a very custom solution on time and on budget. Our customers love the new site and our on-line sales continue to grow year over year. If you are looking for a partner instead of a vendor, Rave team is your answer.
I have not once regretted the decision to move to Rave Digital. Rave completely redid my website, and completely changed my workflow. It used to take us about 15 minutes to process an order on our old system. Now it takes 1 minute or less. Everything we do at our office is with the greatest efficiency possible.
