Scalable Infrastructure in the Cloud
commercetools focuses on delivering an exceptionally resilient and fast cloud platform, giving merchants the freedom to develop their individual functionalities on top of it rather than worrying about maintaining and updating a complex backend technology.
commercetools: A True Cloud Solution
We realize that in today’s complex market, software vendors readily use the “cloud” label to draw attention to their offering. In most cases, however, this often means that legacy, on-premise software monoliths are being hosted with a public cloud vendor.
The commercetools platform has been built as a truly cloud-native, multi-tenancy platform from day 1. Our entire infrastructure, our development, and our deployment processes take full advantage of state-of-the-art cloud functionality. This enables fast time-to-market and low TCOs for our international customers.

Benefits of Cloud Commerce
Always online with guaranteed availability
With state-of-the-art architecture, automated testing processes, 24/7 monitoring, and extensive analysis tools we guarantee availability of 99.8%.
Benefit from the highest data security standards
We do not compromise regarding data security. Our platform runs in PCI DSS certified data centers at several locations in Europe and the US, and we have taken various security measures to make sure that your data are always safe.
Fast and responsive applications
Speed matters: commercetools relies on highly efficient processes and using document-based data storage so that our platform reaches average response times of <100ms per GET request.
The platform scales automatically when there are traffic peaks due to seasonal business or marketing campaigns. With commercetools, merchants do not have to add additional resources when Black Friday is coming up.
We have one of the most advanced software development processes and deliver more than 100 feature releases and updates per year.
