Why is Magento Commerce Cloud the right solution for you? Here a few reasons why we believe Magento Commerce Cloud is the right solution for hosting your Magento solution.
Magento Commitment to Site Excellence
Magento's reputation is on the line, they know it and act accordingly. Magento has demonstrated to us that they are committed to ensuring that customers' sites perform well. The commitment extends well beyond the initial configuration. Magento monitors your system to:
- Identify potential performance issues on live systems.
- Monitor system usage to ensure your site stays within acceptable performance metrics.
- If for some reason your site experiences slowness, they proactively reach out and are available to help diagnose the problem.
Guaranteed Right-sized Provisioning
Something we have never experienced before. Magento Commerce Cloud won't allow you to deploy your site to an undersized environment. Magento Commerce Cloud won't configure an environment that is not sufficient. Your key site metrics (peak page views, transactions, concurrent users, concurrent admin users, etc.) are factored into the resources you will need to have a performant system. Hosting companies ask you want you want, Magento Commerce Cloud educates you what you need.
Knowledgeable Hosting Staff
Unlike any other hosting provider, the Commerce Cloud team know and understand the complete Magento environment infrastructure. They are experts in configuring Magento. They know and have implemented Magento best practices. Your site will not be a snowflake, it will follow the proven server architecture to achieve the best performance for your site.
Staging Environment that matches production
Each Commerce Cloud setup includes a production and a staging environment. The staging environment runs the same services and software that the production environment does. This allows site changes to be fully vetted before pushing to production.
Simplicity of Server Access
Getting access to the servers is simple. No special VPN clients required. Add a user through the web portal and assign them a role. Developers and support staff need only an SSH key and they can be accessing environments in minutes.
Docker instances for development
In addition to have a staging environment that mirrors production for quality assurance and user acceptance testing, Magento provides a docker setup so that your development team can also develop in the same environment as the code will eventually be deployed in, eliminating unfound errors during deployment because of mismatched environments.
Ease of environment replication
Magento Commerce Cloud makes it very simple to copy an upper environment down into a lower environment or to spin up a new environment based on an existing one. Want to do some testing with the latest production data, no problem. Want to give a 3rd-party developer access to their own environment to track down an issue with their code or service, no problem.
Up-sizing of environments
Part of the Magento Commerce Cloud package is a set number of days that Magento will upsize your environment during peak usage periods. You can even have Magento auto-upsize your environment when they determine that resources are being maxed out. Whether it be for the holiday season at the end of the calendar year, on specific catalog drops throughout the year, or the end of the government's fiscal year, your environment can be increased to handle the server load you know is coming.
Blackfire, Fastly, New Relic
Magento Commerce Cloud bundles in a rich suite of services to help ensure your site reaches its optimal performance. Fastly manages your SSL certificates, your web application firewall, and your CDN. New Relic provides in-depth performance analysis of the entire application stack. Blackfire allows you to debug site issues directly on production without negatively impacting your running site.
Magento Commerce Cloud makes pushing new builds to a server environment easy. A simple GIT push installs new code and initiates a complete rebuild of the environment.
