migrate Your Magneto Store to Magento 2

Magento 2.0 is finally here! It’s been a week since the much awaited version of Magento released. This version has been in talks for its features and benefits since it entered the development stage. Now, its release is raising the one question- will businesses and enterprises migrate to Magento 2.0? If yes, what benefits will they gain from this migration?

Reason for Adopting Magento 2.0

Magento 2.0 is all set for your site or enterprise, with its incredible features. These features will help in improving the overall performance of the site, thus enabling you to offer a good user experience.

Let’s see why sites should upgrade to Magento 2.0 at the earliest

Full-page Caching

This feature is bolted into both the community and enterprise edition of Magento 2.0. The web server used to work on database queries to render a particular page. This process could be slow, thus taking time in loading your web page. In Magento 2.0, the web pages are built into a single static file system, which is totally cached and rendered when called upon. The loading time is reduced to 1-2 seconds as a result.

Clean Code

With Magento 2.0, the platform has made a fresh and renewed start. The bad code as well as some of the legacy extensions has been removed

Enhanced Performance

Performance issues owing to table locking can become a major problem for e-stores. Magento 2.0 aims to remove such issues. The esoteric mySQL table optimization combined with hefty caching has enabled an improved performance for Magento stores. They have worked on optimizing the page to reduce the loading times heavily.

Renewed Checkout Process

The checkout process has been modified for Magento 2.0. Some of the things like choosing the credit card type options have been removed. The guest checkout option has been included. Logged in users can continue to checkout without a password.

Why Adopt Magento 2.0 Enterprise Edition?

When Magento 2.0 community edition has been enhanced to match the needs of Magento based sites, why would you adopt the enterprise edition? Here are some reasons that will compel you to choose Magento 2.0

Separating the Database

You can separate the database for checkout and content with the Magento 2.0. The MySQL database will help you store and retrieve the content, product and category pages. The checkout database is different for the Magento 2.0. This way chances of your application failing because of database failure is less. With the separate database, the performance of the website enhances. This is specifically useful for those websites that have more than 5000 products stored and sold.

In-built Features

Magento 2.0 has included some of the useful features to the core. RMA, Admin logging, gift registry, advanced customer segmentation, personalization etc. are some of the in-built features of Magento 2.0 enterprise edition.
