Magento Development

Magento Open Source

Magento Open Source, formerly known as the Magento Community Edition, is a free eCommerce platform for developers and small businesses. Magento Open Source eCommerce delivers the features you need to build and grow a unique online store from the ground up. This version is excellent for a small business looking to give you the ability to have an online store with custom options.

Magento Commerce

Magento Commerce, formerly known as the Magento Enterprise Edition is a paid eCommerce platform for small, medium and large businesses.

Magento Commerce provides more advanced functionality and fees are calculated based on the revenue model. What you pay depends on how much your business earns.

Magento Commerce is the platform of choice for merchants who need multi-store, multi-language, and wholesale (B2B) capabilities out of their eCommerce platform. It is also fully supported by Magento’s team of engineers, who are continuously innovating and adding new and exciting features to the platform.

Magento Commerce Cloud

Magento Commerce Cloud Edition is Magento’s cloud solution where the cloud server is managed by Magento, so you don’t have to worry about the configuration, security, performance or anything like that. To develop your project on Magento Commerce Cloud edition, you’ll need to create an account in Magento and purchase a license. This includes a Magento Commerce License. From the developer perspective, the setup is relatively easy. You need to create different environments from the Magento Commerce Cloud admin page and access your code from the Magento-cloud CLI tool. For version control, Git is used. When deploying to the master branch, you are deploying to a production environment, which Magento-cloud CLI does for you after you push the changes.

As a Commerce service, you get a lot of other features in regards to the server and you as a merchant don’t have to deal with hosting. Moreover, the platform has an integrated CDN, New Relic, and Blackfire.io. The infrastructure is set up on an AWS cloud server, on which most of the merchants are going nowadays.
