What is Silverstripe Cloud Public Sector?
Silverstripe Cloud Public Sector builds on the technology you’ve become familiar with from CWP while giving you the security assurance, recipe management, and service management that should always come with building and hosting websites.
You’ll have the right blend of infrastructure, services, and support out-of-the-box to deliver an experience that’s the best fit for your agency and for the people you’re connecting with across New Zealand.
Things to know
This guide explains some of the differences and new experiences for those who have selected the Silverstripe Cloud Public Sector option of being hosted within New Zealand. Silverstripe Cloud provides a continuity service for those coming from the New Zealand Government Common Web Platform (CWP) that wish to utilise either our New Zealand or international hosting options under the Government Marketplace structure. These guides are predominantly written for those hosted in New Zealand.
Logging in to Silverstripe Cloud
Silverstripe Cloud has 2 logins, depending on where you have selected your stack to be hosted (New Zealand based, or internationally).
For access to Silverstripe Cloud Public Sector's New Zealand hosted option, customers previously on CWP can continue to use their login credentials but can now access services by logging into nz.silverstripe.cloud. Once logged in you will be able to access the deployment dashboard and service desk as per usual. If problems exist, get in touch with our account management team.

Any technical differences should be outlined in the documentation. Service's like GitLab will remain active for the remainder of the support timeframe so for the time being there is no need to move your code.
