WooCommerce WP Pros and Cons

Technically speaking, WooCommerce today is an open source (customizable) plugin for WordPress that turns it into an online store. It is a lightweight, easy to use plugin with intuitive interface. Both WordPress and the plugin are free for personal and commercial use. Here are key advantages of WooCommerce: it is Open Source and it is free for editing and customization, lots of extensions, customer and store administrator accounts, lots of free and paid themes available, lots of analytic tools to measure the sales, statics for customers, show graphs for a time period activity. The cons for WooCommerce are: as with many powerful apps the more choices and option it gives the more you have to learn, so it does require some knowledge and practice and unfortunately there is a lock of support, themes and plugins might be managed by different teams and companies. There are other e-commerce solutions for WordPress, the most popular is WooCommerce.

Amazon Has Created its Own Server Chips

Some of AWS cloud services will use Arm-based server chips. Amazon has taken another big step toward reducing reliance on Intel and AMD for a critical component of its cloud-computing service. Late Monday the largest cloud company unveiled its own server processors and informed that these chips will support new versions of its main EC2 cloud-computing service. It is a logic move for the world's biggest internet service provider and yet this news caught semiconductor experts unaware. Amazon did a good job keeping this secret. Designing its own processor is a complex project that likely took several years. New processor named Graviton and it is build on ARM architecture previously used mostly as smartphone processors. They are less powerful than made by Intel or AMD, but cheaper, and more power efficient. And at Amazon’s scale, even small efficiency and cost savings will nicely add up.
