What is Magento Enterprise
Let's review the Magento Commerce product so that you can determine which will be right for you. Open-Source is a free download product from the company that is in an open-source format. In a sense, you could consider this the bare bones of the Magento platform and it is not for everyone. While the Magento Enterprise version has many features and performance improvements not included in Magento Community. Magento also offers a fully hosted platform in the Cloud, Magento Commerce Cloud.
- Open-Source is a free download and it is not supported. This means it is best for experienced higher-level developers who would not need technical support. Commerce is a paid version, but also comes with Magento expert support.
- This product is designed for those who do not need to get their eCommerce platform up and running in a short amount of time. In other words, if you are in a hurry, this platform will be slower than you need.
- This product is designed for those who do not mind spending time developing their site and determining problem-solving without any technical help.
- Just as with Open-Service, you will have code-level access and web services APIs.
- The product will allow you to make use of extensions and themes from third party sources.
- The product allows you to control pricing in a flexible environment.
- Order management systems for easier control.
Overall, Magento Open-Source should only be chosen if you have a great deal of technical experience and you feel comfortable working as a developer
