commercetools leverages Google Cloud’s Google Kubernetes Engine as the core of its infrastructure, allowing the company to build out key infrastructure components, offload maintenance tasks, enhance data capabilities, and house some of its stateful, third-party services without fear of integration issues.
“When we spend all of our time managing infrastructure components, we are not providing value for our customers. We provide value to them when we create beautiful APIs. Google Cloud provides the exceptional level of service we need to allow our developers to focus on building these new features and products that move the needle for our customers. Google Cloud is the perfect partner for commercetools, and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our partnership with the organization so together we can continue to drive innovation in our space and provide even greater value for retailers.”
