BigCommerce today announced the migration of its hosting infrastructure to Google Cloud Platform. More than 60,000 merchants are now using Google Cloud Platform via BigCommerce.
BigCommerce says merchants that have been successfully migrated have seen, on average, an 81% improvement in connection times, which are now below 10 milliseconds, resulting in faster page load times, improved conversion and better customer experience.
In the past 3 months, BigCommerce moved the majority of its customer base to Google Cloud Platform while maintaining better than 99.99 percent uptime. Through the remainder of 2018, BigCommerce merchants experienced 100 percent uptime on the new hosting infrastructure.
“BigCommerce has processed more than $21 billion in sales and now supports merchants in more than 120 countries around the world. As our merchants continue to grow on the platform, we take pride in delivering world-class performance and a scalable hosting solution that works as hard as they do,” said Brian Dhatt, CTO for BigCommerce. “Throughout our sustained growth, BigCommerce has always provided merchants a secure platform with near-perfect uptime and industry-leading performance. The decision to move to Google Cloud further extends our commitment to reliability and scalability, backed by Google Cloud’s reputation in security, performance, and innovation.”
BigCommerce says Google Cloud’s scalable infrastructure and global footprint, which includes 18 cloud regions and 134 points of presence around the world, means that BigCommerce traffic enters the Google network much closer to the individual shopper, providing a faster and more reliable connection between merchants and their customers.
BigCommerce expects to complete the full migration by next month.
