Magento 1 support comes to an end in June 2020 and customers are being asked to spend a lot of money moving to Magento 2. The Magento sales team are strongly encouraging customers to migrate to their Enterprise Cloud Edition (ECE) but what they’re not telling you is that you don’t need ECE to take advantage of the infinite resources of the public cloud. You don’t even need Magento Enterprise Edition and you certainly don’t need to move to Magento 2. Webscale has migrated more than 300 Magento storefronts to the cloud, and more than half of those are Community Edition.

Would you like to learn why these companies chose Webscale’s e-commerce cloud platform over Magento?

Tired of the Magento tax?


Magento’s ECE follows the same revenue sharing model of its standard Enterprise offering. For larger customers, this “Magento tax” means you could be paying 2x more for the exact same service, and the same infrastructure, as a much smaller retailer. If your business is successful, why should you be penalized? Webscale doesn’t believe you should be.

Webscale is version agnostic, so whether you’re on Enterprise or Community Edition, Webscale can help you leverage the cloud to improve your storefront’s performance, availability and security.

Like having a choice in cloud provider?


Magento ECE is AWS only. Amazon is a threat to every e-retailer, and AWS revenues are only helping it grow stronger. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend your money elsewhere? What if another cloud provider like Google Cloud was a better fit for your development and business needs?

Webscale’s E-Commerce Cloud Platform is completely cloud-agnostic, providing retailers with complete flexibility in choosing one or more cloud providers (Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, AWS, and more).

Want to stay ahead of demand?


While Magento ECE, and managed hosting providers, can offer basic AWS auto-scaling, only Webscale offers predictive auto-scaling, capable of forecasting traffic surges and scaling out ahead of demand, based on session information and arrival rates. Webscale predictive scaling keeps page load times consistently fast, regardless of the increasing volume of visitors, by increasing your capacity incrementally and delivering a perfectly right-sized infrastructure when you need it. Unlike Magento ECE, we’ll scale back in as soon as that traffic subsides, keeping your cloud costs to a minimum.

What do you do when disaster strikes?


If you were on Magento ECE during the recent AWS outage, then you likely experienced some downtime. If you’re tied to a single cloud provider region, that can happen. Webscale Multi-Cloud Disaster Recovery (DR) operates across different regions of a cloud provider, or entirely different cloud providers, to provide a disaster recovery solution that helps businesses remain always-on and high performing in the event of operational downtime. Want to run your production environment in Google Cloud but with a secondary failover location on AWS? No problem!
