Tenzing Managed IT Services is expanding its ecommerce hosting portfolio with the release Magento Optimized Hosting this week.
The new service for Magento merchants combines Tenzing’s core managed services with advanced managing services. These include Site Optimization, Application Performance Monitering, Multi-Endpoint Load Testing, and DoS Mitigation/Prevention.
Tenzing claims the new offering will deliver better performing SEO, higher conversion rates and peak performance during crucial periods. It uses hybrid bare metal and cloud infrastructure, and reference architectures designed for Magento.
Tenzing’s optimized LAMP configurations leverage memcache and VARNISH to run Magento optimally and scale. These configurations and advanced reference architectures using NGINX and Percona MySQL deliver high performance for price from the underlying infrastructure, the company says.
“We have been supporting enterprise, mid-market merchants and brand manufacturers for many years on leading edge ecommerce platforms from Oracle and IBM to name a few. We are passionate about the unique needs of both the users that shop and the technology platforms used to deliver the shopping experience,” said Raj Atwal, Tenzing VP and General Manager, Ecommerce. “We have been deploying and supporting Magento stores for some time, but the past six months we have increased our staff specialization dramatically, provided specialized Magento training to our operational staff, built labs for the optimized builds and tested them every way we know possible with our Magento partners.”
As online retail sales continue to soar, the competition among ecommerce solution providers and hosts continues to motivate service improvements and competitive partnerships.
Magento should benefit from the targeted offering as it competes with Prestashop and Opencart, among others. Magento host ProperHost increased its affiliate commission payouts earlier this week.
