Magento Commerce officially released a new version of the open source Magento eCommerce digital platform on November 17th, 2015, and simply dubbed it “Magento 2.0.” Magento 2 promises to take B2C and B2B retailers to new eCommerce heights with engaging, responsive customer experiences. By the time Magento 2 was officially released, Vaimo was already ahead of the game and became a Magento 2 Trained Solution Partner.
Magento is one of the world's most popular eCommerce platforms and is often chosen over other platforms because of its scalability, it offers an Enterprise version for larger merchants, and that it is possible to install it on any server. However, what many people don’t think of is that Magento with all its power and robustness needs a bit of configuration and tweaking before it can make their eCommerce dreams come true. Don’t get disappointed when your Magento store doesn’t perform great “out of the box” - it’s not meant to! To get your Magento store working seamlessly, you have a few things to get right: hosting, cashing system configuration and storing static content, code efficiency as well as careful consideration of where to keep your catalogue content.
Flight Club business idea is a bit unusual from Vaimo’s perspective, but from what we've learnt quite widely used in the US. In short, collectors buy and sell their unique inventory, and FlightClub provides both physical marketplace stores and the online e-commerce site for selling the footwear.
Early on in the eCommerce project planning phase Flight Club communicated their anticipated traffic volumes for the website. As we looked at numbers, we realized we were about to implement a site with around 4x more page views than what we had done for any other site in the past. We have put together with Flight Club a white paper to share what we have learnt from this project in terms of tuning the site running on Magento Enterprise for better performance.
