Ecommerce web hosting specialist Nexcess, a Liquid Web brand holding data centers around the world, has become platinum partner for Magento ecommerce solutions. This 3-year partnership between Nexcess and the Magento Association would drive the ongoing Nexcess initiative to expand its footprint into the Magento community.
Nexcess brings over 20 years of experience hosting web applications to Magento and has been working with Magento merchants since the platform was first built on Nexcess servers. Nexcess will be the only hosting company at the platinum partner level.
“Nexcess is a highly engaged community member in the Magento ecosystem, already well-known to many as a trusted hosting partner,” said Magento Association Chair, Joe Warren. “This community partnership will bring significant year-round value to the Association in the form of digital content and thought leadership. As a Platinum partner, Nexcess is committing early stage resources to support and grow peer education and programming.”
Nexcess has built its brand on hosting ecommerce applications. As a result of the partnership, the company will convert this experience to annual thought-leading white papers and other content to be featured on the magentoassociation.org website. In addition, the Magento Association will make Nexcess-produced webinars available to its members, while providing networking channels to organizers in eminent locations in the US, UK, and Europe. In addition, Magento Association members will receive special offers to enlist Nexcess services.
“Nexcess is committed to the entire Magento Community, assisting merchants of all sizes, regardless of the version they’re running,” said Carrie Wheeler, EVP & General Manager, Nexcess. “For almost 20 years we’ve shown a continued commitment to over 13,000 clients and provided them with the best hosting solutions and support available. We believe this partnership with the Association is an important component of promoting and helping a thriving Magento community now and in the future.”
“This is part of our continuing effort to provide support for Magento and the open source community behind its success,” said Miguel Balparda, Magento Master and Nexcess Product Manager. “We’re looking forward to working alongside the Magento Association as a liaison between Adobe and the Magento community, and we’re excited to see great things come from this partnership.”
