Overview

Adobe Commerce vs. Magento

The original platform, Magento Commerce, underwent various development iterations following its acquisition by Adobe in 2018. Once celebrated as an invaluable extension to the Adobe portfolio, it garnered many awards as a top-tier e-commerce system from market analysts such as Forrester and Gartner, culminating in its rebranding to Adobe Commerce. But despite its name change, Magento is still often referred to in e-commerce circles, raising questions about the differences between the two designations.

Magento and Adobe Commerce are both highly flexible, scalable, cutting-edge e-commerce solutions tailored to the business needs of companies of every scale.

In the early stages of the integration, the system was named Adobe Commerce Cloud, a Magento-based version enhanced with cloud hosting capabilities. Over time, the software was harmonized and consolidated and finally rebranded Adobe Commerce. Cloud hosting has since become an integral feature, available optionally alongside the on-premises version. Adobe Cloud Hosting is, however, just one of many possibilities available with Adobe Commerce, which is also compatible with third-party hosting services such as AWS, Azure or maxcluster.

What is Adobe Commerce?

The 2020 rebranding of Magento to Adobe Commerce aimed to underscore the seamless integration of Magento into the Adobe ecosystem.

Adobe Commerce thus marks the next evolutionary phase of Magento under Adobe’s stewardship, enhanced by a diverse range of tools and features from the Adobe portfolio. This amalgamation allowed Adobe Commerce both to maintain and strengthen Magento’s reputation as a premier e-commerce solution.

With Adobe Commerce, users profit from an e-commerce platform that seamlessly blends flexibility, scalability, and unsurpassed compatibility for B2B and B2C applications.

The latest versions of Adobe Commerce

What is Magento?

Magento, developed by the eponymous company, debuted in 2007 as an open-source PHP-based demo; this was followed by  the launch of Magento Community Edition (open-source) and Magento Enterprise in 2008 and 2009.

The successor, Magento 2, was launched in 2015, with the paid version being marketed under the name Magento Commerce. Magento distributions were available as on-premise products only until the launch of a cloud-based alternative, Commerce Cloud, in 2016.

Following Adobe’s acquisition of Magento, the open-source and paid versions went separate ways, resulting in the advent of Magento Open Source (free) and Adobe Commerce (paid).

A comparison of Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source The differences

While Magento Open Source is no longer included in Adobe’s official update cycle, it maintains a market foothold as a free and powerful e-commerce platform. Its future development will be driven by an active and highly committed Magento community. Enormous anticipation also surrounds Mage OS, an independent distribution which is based entirely on Magento Open Source and slated for release in the near future.

 

This contrasts with the Adobe Commerce store system, based on Magento Commerce, which benefits from Adobe’s regular functional and security updates according to a fixed release schedule. In this way, Adobe Commerce has positioned itself as the leading and most powerful e-commerce platform currently available. Its integrated, feature-rich capabilities, particularly in combination with the Adobe Experience Cloud system landscape, have been pivotal  in cementing this status.
