Looking at the overwhelming adoption rate of their Cloud offering, Magento’s engineers have worked tirelessly in further enhancing its features and adding up some wonderstruck specialities to it. Commerce Cloud is till now one of those profound eCommerce solutions known that garner too much attention in few days span. In just 2 years, there has been a noteworthy adoption of the Cloud solution with 50% of the new users. Thus, many startups or businesses are using it instead of deploying solutions from third-party services providers to kickstart their journey in the online domain.
So, without a further ado, let us get into details of the new features rolled out in the Cloud so that you can see to it when you upgrade your version.
#1 Ece tools for better store management
Magento released the Ece-tools as a package that offers retailer with really advanced management options to scale with growing customers needs. It is offered by replacing the prior version’s cloud-configuration and ece-patches and then creating a new path for the users to deploy the Ece tools package.
#2 Production deployments with enhanced speed
#3 Easier Deploy Process Management
This time the community thought of introducing some project level variables with web UI for managing the deploy process. They introduced .magento.env.yaml file which all needed configurations and so developers could configure any phase accordingly.
#4 Gets a performance boost
With the new update, there rolled a new feature for the Pro users. It allows them to use the three nodes on the Pro Production system. With this added feature, all major operations will be written to the master node and other read operations in between the 3 nodes. This results in much improvement in the performance.
#5 Increase in memory space
Magento always used Amazon Web Services as the principal infrastructure for supporting Cloud Commerce. With new feature updates, there has been an absolute increase in the memory space. After launching the Cloud offering, Magento initially used “C3” servers for the production environment. But, now Magento community introduced AWS M4 servers which have 100 percent rise over the existing space.
#6 Advanced Web Application Firewall
Magento Cloud Commerce is secured by more than one parties, each assigned with the responsibility of separate areas. However, Magento community has now initiated a Web Application Firewall to offer full-fledged protection to the website, preventing all malicious traffic to enter. While the WAF regulations are modified on the basis of security needs of a website, the retailers have to source and implement the firewall.
Apart from the above, few major noteworthy improvements came across the Commerce Cloud offering are seamless production, configuration workflow, local development templates, increase in available money, page speed improvements and maintenance of PCI compliance. Thus, eCommerce merchants and new businesses who rely on Magento’s potentiality need to use its Cloud offering to create a limitless, intuitive and most thrilling shopping experience.
