Dr Robert Zores, REWE Digital

We host Magento, Oxid, Shopware, Intershop and other online shop systems


Magento PlusServer develops the right Magento hosting infrastructure to meet your specific requirements and specifications. Since 2008, we have been managing more than 100 large shops and clusters based on the Magento Community and Magento Enterprise editions – experience we leverage to ensure the success of your project.

Magento’s hunger for resources means that we need to optimise the server system accordingly. This in particular concerns all server system settings, the implementation of various caching/proxy solutions and the use of relevant Magento extensions.

With the hosting site, there are virtually no limits to the growth of your Magento shop solution, which means you can, for example, start with a small stand-alone system and expand this to a high-availability or load balancing cluster as required.

Online shops: strong growth requires innovative operating models

From the “E-commerce hosting in the cloud age” study on the topic of online shop hosting by Crisp Research:

The e-commerce market in Germany has grown and has hit the limit of 50 billion Euro market volume in 2014. Nevertheless, the entire industry is facing a test, as the pressure on cost and innovation is forcing companies to act.

The demands placed by customers on online shops are constantly increasing, while new technology and market trends (e.g. omni-channel) mean the industry is constantly shifting, forcing companies to maintain high levels of innovation.

Leading e-commerce companies are increasingly switching to managed cloud solutions. The underlying hosting infrastructure is an important foundation for a successful and growing business. Only powerful backends can support a dynamic and attractive online shop. Companies will therefore increasingly rely on cloud computing and managed services to stay competitive with regard to infrastructure, security and applications. There will also be a change in the IT operating models.
