Scalable Infrastructure in the Cloud

Headless Commerce

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.

“73% of all surveyed organizations say nearly all their apps will be SaaS by 2020.”
