How using Magento can improve your online business

Planning for an online store to sell your product? Try deploying Magento that can help you to boost up your sales. It has got all the features that you must include to grow your e-commerce business.

What is Magento?

Magento is software written in PHP and was developed by a U.S private company Varien, Inc. There are basically two different platforms namely: Magento Open Source and Magento Commerce.

Magento Open Source was previously known as Magento Community Edition. It is an open-source e-commerce platform where developers are able to implement the core dump file and spread its functionalities with new added plug-in modules that are delivered by other developers. Since its first beta version was released in 2007, it has been developed in such a way, to meet the basic requirements of the e-commerce platform.

The current and earlier versions of 1.X and 2.X version divisions of Magento Open Source are all available on Magento Commerce website and can be downloaded as a single file. The 2.X version of Magento CE is connected publicly on GitHub. The latest active versions of Magento Open Source are CE 1.9.3 and 2.2.0 and very recently it has been acquired by Adobe.

Magento Commerce was released on 11 April 2016 is available in two versions. One is the on-premises version which was previously known as Magento Enterprise Edition and another one is called platform-as-a-service which was previously called Magento Enterprise Cloud Edition.

Magento Commerce is an eCommerce platform for service, with improved features, development tools and with different architecture. It caters for the need of all kinds of businesses is it small, medium or big enterprises.

Its on-premises version is actually very similar to Magento Open Source which includes the same core dump files but unlike the Open-source this version is not free and includes more features and functionalities. This is mainly for large scale business which requires all kinds of technical support from product installation to various configuration. There is annual maintenance for that but it doesn’t include hosting. The team usually develops it connecting the users and the third party.

Magento Enterprise cloud edition is currently running on Amazon Web Service (AWS) is much more reliable, scalable and the cost is also very low. This is the reason why most medium scale businesses and enterprises are embracing AWS since it allows merchants to provide a segregated customer experience and not only that it can be integrated very easily with the existing system and merchandisers can easily get accustomed to any technological change.
