One of Magento's major advantages over other systems is its modularity. It manifests itself in the form of the following benefits in the case of implementations of this platform:

1. First of all, we have three layers: core, community and local, which overwrite the data in the given order, i.e. we can, for example, change the core functionality of Magento but without overwriting files, in practice it can be done by copying files for instance from core to local and there to make programming changes, thanks to which we are sure that in the case of updates we do not lose any changes. Our basic integration modules will be located in the community layer so that in the case of "temporary actions" (such as a temporary promotion that changes a certain logic) you can overwrite our module in the local layer, and afterward delete the overwrite to return to the original version without conflict.

One of our recent implementations concerned the creation of a store for a new brand on the Polish e-commerce fashion market - Basic Spot. This extraordinary experience has enabled us to acquire another large dose of knowledge in the light of the development of the Magento platform. As a result of our work, at least in my opinion, we created quite an interesting and unusual online store design, it should be noted that the goal was to not copy for the hundredth time in the fashion industry black and white answear.com store but to create something unique in its own way. I hope you will like it too, because our team has put a lot of work into this project, and I left a piece of heart in it.

Using XFS and ReiserFS, configuring MaxClients settings - for better control the number of subprocesses.
