Salesforce Commerce Cloud (formerly Demandware), is one of the industry's most agile and scalable e-commerce platforms. Cloudinary offers a certified Salesforce Commerce Cloud (SFCC) cartridge that enables you to simplify and automate the process of managing, transforming, optimizing, finding and delivering metadata-enriched images and videos throughout your entire Commerce Cloud store, including product images and videos, category assets, and site catalogs.
To get an idea of the functionality provided by Cloudinary in the B2C Commerce Cartridge, watch the following videos that cover:
- An overview of what the cartridge offers
- Installation and configuration information
- The different modes of operation
- How videos can be used within your site
Cloudinary offers a cartridge for each of SFCC's reference architectures: SiteGenesis and Storefront Reference Architecture (SFRA). Both have the same functionality, but are configured in different ways. SFRA is the more recent architecture, so if you are new to Salesforce Commerce Cloud, it is recommended that you build your site on this architecture.
This guide provides instructions as to how to set up and use both SFRA and SiteGenesis, highlighting the differences for each wherever relevant.
In addition, you can use B2C Commerce Cartridge for Headless with either SiteGenesis or SFRA, to extend Saleforce's native APIs and provide the flexibility to build a composable storefront using Cloudinary assets.
