When you hear the word “ecommerce,” there’s a good chance the first thing you think of is Magento. It’s been a part of the digital landscape since 2007, and it’s used by hundreds of thousands of companies around the world, ranging from small startups to some of the most recognizable brands.
After Magento’s acquisition by Adobe in 2018, it was inevitable that some things would change. Recently, Adobe rebranded the various editions of Magento; a change that would very understandably lead to users wondering what, exactly, those changes would mean for them.
The good news is that while there have been a few changes in the features being offered, the name changes are among the most significant. Magento 2 Community is now known as Magento 2 Open Source, Magento 2 Enterprise is now known as Magento 2 Commerce, with a combination of powerful, Adobe-certifies extensions built in for the most common eCommerce applications -- and Enterprise Cloud Edition is now Magento 2 Commerce Cloud.
One of the most significant differences for users of Magento 2 Commerce Cloud is that Adobe was able to roll hosting into the newly repackaged version. Any Magento extensions you had been using on Enterprise Cloud will continue to work with Commerce Cloud. This new version also features new dashboards and fully integrates with the Amazon marketplace, giving users the ability to easily select which products they want to feature on Amazon and set prices for them.
