There are key similarities between Magento Enterprise and Magento Community that make both desirable. The main difference between the two is: do you want a “free version” or do you want additional features, reliability, and added security?
The Choices Available
There are two Magento Editions available:
- Magento Enterprise. Well worth its price tag, this edition is designed for robust customization and can handle extremely large catalogs. Large e-commerce companies benefit the most from this option.
- Magento Community. This is a great choice for mid-market businesses. It fills the gap between an “out of the box” cookie cutter option and the need for custom design and marketing features.
