Magento Go is a new Magento platform which helps small and emerging businesses to build a powerful store for selling products and services online, efficiently, quickly and easily. With Magento Go there is no software to install and configure and no servers to manage. Check out this video to understand Magento Go

Magento SAAS is their new solution which was inevitable. Best part of Magento Go would be its ease by switching to open social platform which will further bring the development down to REST, XHTML, XML and JavaScript.

The basic problem which many store owners where referring to is the slowness of Magento deployed versions but with Magento Go they are opting very good hardware infrastructure which is

  • CentOs 5.3 x86_64 – 2.6.18-128.2.1.el5
  • Apache 2.2.3 64-Bit – Prefork_MPM
  • MySQL Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.83 x86_64
  • PHP 5.2.9
  • Zend Engine v2.2.0
  • eAccelerator v0.9.5.3
  • ionCube PHP Loader v3.1.28
  • memcached 1.2.5
  • Magento Community Edition 1.3.x

All the small or medium size store owners can now concentrate more on making their store big rather than worry about hardware, development etc.

They are also offering Magento Go Platform (PSAAS) solution, that will enable developers to build applications for Magento Go, just as they have built for Magento deployed editions. The energy & creativity of the Magento development community meets the SaaS environment.

They are launching Magento Go in February so stay tuned. Please leave me a comment and let me know what do you think about Magento Go and Magento Go Platform.
