If you’ve been observant, you may have noticed our last SilverStripe Platform announcement was in November 2015. This quietness wasn’t just been the Christmas break. Our "Cloudbusters" product development team has been hard at work, busting those clouds and bringing a huge new development to SilverStripe Platform...
The problem: SilverStripe Platform was overkill for some smaller sites
At conferences, online and in all our conversations, we’ve asked what you need from SilverStripe Platform. It’s still relatively new in its evolution, compared to SilverStripe CMS. Digital agencies we spoke to loved using SilverStripe Platform but need a solution that was flexible enough to run all their SilverStripe applications, not just their larger clients.
For us to deliver on our promise to “Silence distractions”, you must be able to trust all of your sites to SilverStripe Platform, not just the larger ones.
The solution: Stack Share
Instead of one site per stack, Stack Share allows multiple websites to run on one SilverStripe Platform stack.
This is intended to be a cost-effective solution for digital agencies with some smaller clients with tight hosting budgets, lower traffic and less frequent updates to their sites.
Your Stack, as a whole, still benefits from the advantages of AWS cloud hosting and infrastructure tailored for SilverStripe applications. Your agency will benefit from the deployment tools that allow faster, more efficient development across teams. We support you directly to ensure your time is spent coding, and not working on hosting or security updates.
How does it differ from SilverStripe Platform?
We will provide you with support for your agency’s stack(s), and as an agency, you will provide end-user support to each of your clients on the stack.
The main benefits of SilverStripe Platform remain the same:
- One-click deployments in an intuitive web-based tool
- A single dashboard for all sites, big and small
- Supported, maintained infrastructure complete with all the logging tools you need
- 24/7 support of the Stack
- Backed by SilverStripe Limited
- Standardise your approach to running SilverStripe sites
By standardising on SilverStripe Platform, you can save time and money. While your infrastructure, security and support distractions are handled by SilverStripe experts, you can focus on providing your clients with innovative solutions and new features.
When can you access Stack Share?
Stack Share is officially available to all digital agencies from today!
