Service features

Disaster Recovery

CWP quickly responds and recovers to another location in New Zealand if a major disaster — like an earthquake — takes the primary data centre offline. Different recovery options are available depending on how quickly you need your website up and running.

Incident response

The CWP contract sets out the services and service levels you can expect from Silverstripe to manage your website. Your site will be supported by a 24/7 team of Silverstripe experts. 

Co-fund Development Pool

The co-funded development pool helps advance CWP and develop new features for all agencies to use. Agencies collectively decide new developments, like features, modules and themes to be created.

Frequently updated

Silverstripe releases new versions of the CWP “recipe” 4 times a year. This “recipe” includes Silverstripe CMS and the supported modules that your website will run on. Minor patches and bug fixes may be released more regularly.

Optional features and services

Optional features

Your CWP set-up can be customised with extra development environments, VPN endpoints and a WAF (Web Application Firewall) for increased security.
