Dedicated to keeping New Zealand government agencies flexible and agile, we’ve released the Mini stack — a small CWP recipe powered by the public cloud that is cost efficient and only has what you need for a small site. You can see how the Mini compares to the other stacks here.

Like many governments around the world who have opted for a cloud first strategy, New Zealand is now becoming a center for cloud excellence with this mini stack offering.

Why so Mini?

There are benefits to being small and nimble. The mini stack was designed for agencies who find CWP’s core offering too expensive, too feature rich for their needs and who want to explore a cloud first approach.

When to use Mini?

The Mini stack is ideal for agencies who require a low cost website for a narrow audience. Due to its cost and ease of setup, the Mini stack is the preferred choice for communications and policy teams who require a lightweight site to then apply their own brand and styling.
