Magento is an open-source eCommerce platform created by Varien, built using the Zend PHP Framework. It uses the very popular MySQL as a backend database. Unlike some of the eCommerce platforms out there which are forks of existing platforms such as OsCommerce, Magento is designed and built from the ground up. By making use of the Zend Framework the object-oriented code allows for easy development and scalability.
