Magento Commerce Starter Edition

Today we saw Magento announce a new variant to their Cloud Hosting Offering.
The following blog post covers everything you need to know about what changes are coming.


What's Changed?

The Magento Cloud Lineup will now consist of two product variations: 

- Magento Commerce Starter Edition 

- Magento Commerce Professional Edition (Formerly Magento Commerce Cloud Edition)

Magento Commerce Starter Edition

Magento Commerce Starter Edition provides users that want to combine their Magento Commerce licence combined with a Cloud Hosted Infrastructure at a more affordable price point.

The Magento Commerce Starter Edition package still comes with a great set of tools available such as New Relic (Application Monitoring), Blackfire.io (Code Profiling) and Fastly (Content Delivery Network).

However, the package comes with the following limitations: 

- It is only available to retailers that are generating less than 10 million USD in revenue per annum.

- It is only available to retailers which have less than 50,000 complex SKU's.

- It is limited to five domains / store-fronts.

- It does not come with Magento Business Intelligence or Magento B2B modules (although they may be added on for an additional cost).

- It comes with a separate SLA which has slightly slower response times.

- Unlike 'Magento Cloud Pro' which features dedicated hardware for production websites. Magento Commerce Cloud runs on a shared infrastructure.

Magento Commerce Professional Edition

Magento Commerce Professional Edition is positioned at retailers that are looking for an Enterprise Cloud Hosting solution combined with a Magento Commerce licence.

Magento Commerce Professional Edition has the following benefits over Starter Edition.

  • The hardware is fixed so you're not sharing resource with other businesses on the network.
  • The Magento Business Intelligence capabilities can be used with no additional charge,
  • The Magento B2B Module can be installed for no additional charge.
  • It has a faster SLA response time.
