Tenzing Launches Magento Optimized Hosting for Magento Merchants

TORONTO – February 4, 2014

Solution combines core managed services and advanced managed services to help increase revenues and deliver an exceptional customer experience.

Tenzing Managed IT Services (Tenzing), a leading provider of hosting solutions for online retailers, today announced a new offering, Magento Optimized Hosting. Magento merchants can now work with Tenzing to support their web stores with more than just responsive infrastructure, reliable networks and core managed services. Magento Optimized Hosting combines these core managed services with advanced managed services like Site Optimization, Application Performance Monitoring, Multi-Endpoint Load Testing, and DoS Mitigation / Prevention to offer a solution that delivers better performing SEO, higher conversion rates and peak performance when it matters most.

“Magento merchants need more than managed hosting in order to be successful,” said Dave Geada, Director of Marketing and Product Management. “They need a service provider who understands the challenges that they face and can identify, integrate and deliver innovative technologies seamlessly as a service. Our Magento Optimized Hosting offering represents the best of managed hosting plus advanced managed services designed to  help merchants capture greater revenue and deliver the best possible customer experience.”

Magento Optimized Hosting combines hybrid bare metal and cloud infrastructure, performance-based reference architectures designed specifically for Magento, core managed services like OS administration and backups, and advanced managed services like Site Optimization and Application Performance Monitoring to deliver superior reliability, scalability and performance. Fully managed by Tenzing, Magento merchants can leverage these capabilities with little impact to their own internal operations.

“We’re excited to have a hosting company and infrastructure partner that’s willing to push the limits and try and bring to market some new services and products for Magento based merchants,” said Matt Bertulli, CEO and Co-Founder of Demac Media, a leading Magento Gold Certified Solution Partner.

In order for Magento to run optimally and scale, it requires the right combination of infrastructure and software configured for performance. Tenzing’s Magento Optimized Hosting offers optimized LAMP configurations that leverage memcache and VARNISH to deliver significantly greater performance. In addition, Tenzing offers more advanced reference architectures based on technologies like NGINX and Percona MySQL to deliver even greater performance gains. Each of these options can be deployed on either bare metal infrastructure or a hybrid configuration. The result is significantly higher price/performance from the underlying infrastructure and the ability to scale quickly when and if you need it.

“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, Vice President and General Manger, 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. There is no doubt that Tenzing now has a premium Magento support offering in the marketplace that is unique on many fronts and has the merchant and the consumer at the center of its offering.”
