Bigcommerce, the fastest-growing commerce platform for successful and
emerging merchants, today announced that Magento, an eBay Enterprise
company, has named Bigcommerce as the SaaS e-commerce migration provider
for ProStores and Magento Go, which will be discontinued on February 1,
Bigcommerce and Magento are committed to the future success of ProStores
and Magento Go retailers. Magento is offering migration options that
best suit the needs of each client, including migration to its Community
and Enterprise Editions, and special migration offers to Bigcommerce.
For those clients best served outside of the Magento portfolio, Magento
recommends ProStores and Go retailers move their stores to Bigcommerce.
Magento and Bigcommerce carefully coordinated the design of a migration
program to ensure that ProStores and Go retailers can begin making
preparations to migrate their stores well before the critical holiday
season. The program includes integration across sales, migration
services, and client support, as well as exclusive offers on comparably
“Magento is dedicated to helping fast-growing retailers succeed. We
chose Bigcommerce to help with the transition because of their shared
commitment to client success and their proven track record of migrating
large groups of merchants onto their platform,” said Mark Lavelle,
senior vice president of product and strategy, eBay Enterprise.
“Throughout this transition period, we will fully support both ProStores
and Go, and clients will receive the same level of customer service
they’ve come to expect.”
Bigcommerce has previously migrated more than 6,000 ProStores retailers
onto its platform and has migrated an additional 6,000 stores from other
platforms, giving it the industry’s deepest expertise in terms of
in-house professional services and tools to help clients successfully
relaunch their stores. In addition, Bigcommerce’s client-centric
culture, tight integration with PayPal and ability for clients to sell
on eBay make it a natural choice as a Magento transition provider.
“We are prepared and excited to work with ProStores and Magento Go
merchants to help them continue their success using the Bigcommerce
platform,” said Eddie Machalaani, CEO of Bigcommerce. “We understand
that the to-do list for small business owners is never ending, and our
teams are standing by to deliver the very best migration and onboarding
experience so merchants can focus on growing their businesses.”
Bigcommerce offers a comprehensive e-commerce platform designed to help
growing small and mid-sized businesses sell more. By expanding its
product and engineering teams, Bigcommerce further demonstrates its
commitment to creating the best platform for SMB merchants, including
beautiful and optimized design templates, built-in SEO, mobile
optimization and easy integration with PayPal. In addition, Bigcommerce
offers many free educational tools, support and professional services to
ensure clients have everything they need to grow their businesses. New
clients coming from Go and ProStores will join more than 50,000
companies currently on the Bigcommerce e-commerce platform. Current
clients include established and emerging brands such as Grace and Lace,
Josie Maran, Stupid Cancer, Gibson Guitars, and Schwinn.

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.

Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
