(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Tenzing Managed IT Services, a leading provider of enterprise managed services and hosting solutions for retailers around the world, today announced that it has joined Magento’s Hosting Partner Program as a Magento Silver Hosting Partner. Currently, Magento only recognizes 11 hosting partners. This partnership further strengthens Tenzing’s position as an innovator in the Magento ecosystem. Over the years, Tenzing has continued to invest in ways to tailor its specialized commerce managed hosting services for Magento based on client and partner needs. The partnership with Magento is the foundation of Tenzing’s commitment to the success of the broader Magento ecosystem and all parties involved.
“Magento is the fastest growing commerce platform in the world, and for good reason,” said Brian Shepard, CEO of Tenzing. “Its flexibility, ease of use and responsiveness make it a natural choice for merchants who are themselves experiencing accelerated growth. Managing Magento effectively requires a knowledgeable hosting partner who delivers optimal performance, security and reliability on a range of infrastructure, including cloud platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS). We are proud to join the ecosystem that ensures Magento merchants succeed.”
The announcement of this partnership comes on the heels of Tenzing’s recent announcement of support for Magento Optimized Hosting on AWS. Tenzing worked hand-in-hand with Magento to leverage new testing frameworks and technologies to evaluate performance of their AWS solution. Tenzing also developed an AWS benchmarking whitepaper from this collaboration that demonstrates comparable price/performance for Magento on AWS compared to bare metal Magento deployments. Tenzing’s investments in AWS are a direct response to the growing need by retailers of all sizes for scalable infrastructure and managed services to support multi-channel initiatives on Magento.
“Tenzing has demonstrated very quickly that they can offer a truly unique set of services that the merchant community values,” said Derek Jacobson, Vice President, Ecommerce and Web Content Management Systems at Levementum. “Whether it’s their fully managed and dedicated hosting services or their managed Amazon Web Service (AWS) solutions, they have an effective, thoughtful and targeted solution for all Magento merchants. We’ve found their customer support teams to be incredibly responsive and their technology solutions to be top shelf. We’re also incredibly excited about the additional value add services they offer, which can be game changers. Tools like Site Optimizer, Site Tester and Commerce Performance Manager are truly unique tool sets that allow a merchant or ecommerce implementation partner to drive more value. Every time we’ve asked for something from Tenzing, they came back with better than expected results.”
To account for different customers with a diversity of needs, different solutions can be tailored accordingly. Tenzing offers Magento Optimized Hosting on bare metal infrastructure in Tenzing’s own datacenters located in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. In addition, Tenzing offers Magento Optimized Hosting on AWSinfrastructure in over 50 Amazon datacenters worldwide.
