Whirl-i-Gig offers cloud-hosting packages for CollectiveAccess projects of all sizes. Hosting with Whirl-i-Gig is a simple solution for users who don’t have in-house server administration or technical support for third-party server management. Please note that at this time our hosting service is designed to accommodate projects after initial configuration is complete.

Hosting users should have either:
• a CollectiveAccess system hosted on another server
• a CollectiveAccess database snapshot or back-up
• or, for new projects: a completed installation profile with configuration files

All hosting packages include:
• free software installation
• free software updates as new version of CollectiveAccess are released
• free server issue and server maintenance resolution
• free system migration for CollectiveAccess installations hosted on other platforms
• free nightly back-ups of all data and media

The following levels are sufficient for most projects, but please feel free to contact us for custom specifications at
