No! Adobe Commerce Cloud is a fully-managed version of Magento (the eCommerce platform) that is fully integrated with Adobe tools such as Advertising Cloud, Analytics Cloud, and others. It is a PaaS solution.

If you use Adobe Commerce Cloud, your website will be hosted in the cloud, and you will not have to pay an additional service fee for your platform. Furthermore, by using the cloud version, you can benefit from features such as:

  • B2B Module (Features like RFQ, shared catalog, etc)
  • Customer Segmentation
  • Visual Merchandiser
  • Order by SKU
  • Business Intelligence Tools

In addition to the features listed above, Adobe Commerce Cloud includes hosting as well as the tools needed to monitor and manage hosting. In short, as your business grows, Magento open-source may no longer be a scalable and ideal solution, and you may need to migrate to Adobe Commerce Cloud for continuous support and advanced features.
