With Oro’s cloud-hosted infrastructure, you can run your business globally without being tied to on-site equipment, maintenance, software or hardware updates, and the downtime that comes with it. Through GCP, Google is continuously investing in expanding their global infrastructure. For our OroCloud customers, this means high-quality service, speed, and website stability regardless of the amount of data, traffic and bandwidth usage in your enterprise eCommerce platform.
