Magento 1.x and 2.0
Magento is an ecommerce platform built on open source technology which provides online merchants with a flexible shopping cart system, as well as control over the look, content and functionality of their online store. Magento offers powerful marketing, search engine optimization, and catalog-management tools. Magento is the best ecommerce platforms available today, with editions ranging from community open source, to massive, large-scale enterprise SaaS based systems. Magento supports a wide range of payment gateways and shipping methods, which makes it the most favorite choice for e-commerce.
Magento 1.x. Community Edition and Enterprise Edition were the most powerful e-commerce platform until Magento 2 got released in 2015. There are thousands of e-commerce websites powered by Magento 1.x, out of which, many were developed and maintained our team.
Magento Enterprise Edition is derived from the Magento Community Edition. Enterprise Edition, has more features and functionality, since it’s a paid one. We use Enterprise edition for large businesses that require technical support with installation, usage, configuration, and troubleshooting. At present, we maintain many enterprise Magento stores developed by our team for enterprise customers.

Magento 2 is the latest incarnation of the leading enterprise-class eCommerce platform, utilised by over 200,000 online retailers. In fact, it’s estimated that 1 in 4 businesses are using the Magento software.
