Magento Commerce Cloud (formerly Magento)

For large-scale e-commerce websites on a dedicated server with a good web developer on staff/on call, Magento is an excellent option.For small scale e-commerce, or starter website, Magento is not the best option, and will leave your pulling your hair out.

Pros

Magento Commerce Cloud (formerly Magento)

  • Magento's database really handles large amounts of data very well and is very scalable.....I actually only recommend Magento for larger ecommerce websites because I know it will easily scale to the needs.
  • Magento has an incredible support system with it's community of open-source developers .
  • Magento has many built in features that many other open-source ecommerce platforms don't have out of the box. And extending on those features is easy with extensions.
  • Of course you can't go wrong with the fact that the Community Edition of Magento is open-source, meaning free to download and use!

Cons

Magento Commerce Cloud (formerly Magento)

  • The Magento admin is not as user-friendly has other e-commerce platforms, and this is why I never recommend it for smaller ecommerce stores.
  • You absolutely need a skilled developer to customize and extend Magento. A skilled developer can make Magento amazing, but if you're looking for a DIY website option, Magento will frustrate you.
  • Magento takes a lot of server resources, so you will not be able to run on it a shared hosting account. You will need a dedicated server for it.

Magento is well-supported by a big development team at eBay, which not only addresses bug reports very quickly, but also is constantly working on improvements to the platform. The wealth of Magento third party modules ensures that the platform will be up to date with future changes to
Payment or ERP systems.
Security is always a concern and with the Zend framework as a foundation, Magento has had very few security-related patches since I have started to work with it

Alternatives Considered

Magento Commerce Cloud (formerly Magento)

Magento is solid and has a proven track record with years and years of backing. There are tons of plugins and customizations available in the market. It really depends on your specific environment though, since a ".net shop" may want to stick with the same server hardware/architecture rather than introduce another technology stack... It is a solid choice
