Elastic Path Announces the Industry’s Most Powerful Enterprise Commerce Cloud

API-based commerce will accelerate next-level innovations including the emerging Commerce of Things (CoT)

VANCOUVER – November 17, 2016 - Elastic Path Software Inc., announced the first true enterprise commerce platform for the public cloud that offers all the functionality of an on-premise platform—Elastic Path Commerce Cloud for AWS.

100% Flexibility and True Enterprise Functionality
Many cloud-based commerce solutions on the market are multi-tenant, software-as-a service (SaaS). They are template based, limited to specific content management systems, and offer APIs to only a small number of third-party applications. These solutions hamstring deep customization and the ability to take advantage of future innovations.

Elastic Path Commerce Cloud for AWS is built for the future of commerce. It makes all the functionality of their API-based commerce platform available in a single-tenant, public cloud solution, offering companies the flexibility and agility to create brand-defining commerce solutions with absolutely no limits.

“Pairing Elastic Path’s capacity for limitless commerce with the scalable and reliable computing capacity of AWS ushers in a whole new level of excitement for companies looking to run instead of walk toward consistently brilliant customer experiences,” said Peter Lukomskyj, Vice President, Products at Elastic Path. “Many companies are still honing their mobile commerce strategies but the coming Commerce of Things will mean that the number of touchpoints and transactions our large enterprise customers handle will increase exponentially. We built Elastic Path Commerce to future-proof for this scenario and AWS is the perfect platform.”

Not All Enterprise Commerce Platforms are Equal
A leading research analyst firm has predicted that by 2018, more than half of all commerce sites will integrate technologies from more than 15 vendors to deliver a digital customer experience. A fully functional, API-based enterprise commerce platform like Elastic Path Commerce Cloud for AWS is essential to making that future real. It is the only product on the market that allows companies to:

  • Write once and publish to any touchpoint
  • Use any content management system and any front-end
  • Take advantage of any third-party app
  • Leverage any legacy systems
  • Create any customizations for brand-defining customer experiences
  • Expand quickly to any geography
  • Choose any managed hosting company


Reduced Time to Environment Promotes Business Agility
Elastic Path Commerce Cloud for AWS makes environment set-up a breeze, reducing time-to-environment from weeks down to a few hours. The application creates a native AWS environment leveraging AWS cloud services including databases, networking, container services and load balancers. Scripts make deployments to new geographies easier, faster, repeatable and less prone to human error.

Managed Services
Elastic Path Commerce Cloud for AWS can be managed internally by an enterprise IT team or by an Elastic Path partner. Our premier hosting partner, Rackspace, offers proactive monitoring and support for applications deployed within AWS cloud.

“Rackspace is pleased to offer our Managed Application Services for commerce applications like Elastic Path Commerce Cloud for AWS,” says RJ Rowntree, Strategic Alliance Manager, Rackspace. “Working with Elastic Path, we ensure that our customers’ commerce application, and the infrastructure it runs on, is managed for the highest performance.”
