We are very excited to announce a collaboration between Varien and (mt) Media Temple, Inc., to deliver Magento 1.0 through a one-click installation wizard to over 200,000 domains on Media Temple’s (gs) Grid-Service.
Roy Rubin, Founder and CEO of Varien, said, “Media Temple and their Grid Service are at the forefront of hosting and we are thrilled that Magento will be available as a one-click install to all of Media Temple’s Grid Service customers. This relationship reaffirms our commitment to make Magento the leading open-source eCommerce platform on the market.”
“Varien’s brand new Magento 1.0 is an incredible ecommerce platform and we’re very excited to get it into the hands of our Grid users. It’s new to the ecommerce market but Magento will be the one to beat.” Says David Feinberg, Sr. Product Manager of Media Temple. “Mashable compared them to Zimbra, and based on Roy’s team and their experience, I think they’ll easily achieve similar results in the ecommerce market.”
Through the partnership Magento will join popular applications WordPress and Drupal as being available by one-click install to all Grid Service customers. They’ll be able to install and set up their ecommerce store in minutes without any development experience. The intuitive controls of Media Temple’s AccountCenter and Magento’s Admin control panels provide clients with a powerful, but easy to use, toolset for building their online commerce. The Magento one-click installer will be available immediately following the release of Magento 1.0
