Wolverine Web Services Project

Consistent, security-enhanced, cost-effective, enterprise web services are critical to the university’s mission. By providing a suite of central web hosting services to campus, the university will be able to better manage cost, compliance, and security of U-M websites.

Wolverine Web Services (WWS) will provide a variety of multi-tier website content management (CMS) and website hosting services to campus. Faculty, students, staff, university groups, student organizations, and departments will be able to choose from three tiers:

  • A free tier for personal and group websites
  • A paid tier for managed WordPress or Drupal web hosting for websites up to and including mission-critical university business websites.
  • A paid tier for custom web applications and sites

After completing an initial viability check, the project team is in the Design Phase of the ITS Service Life Cycle. They are currently reviewing Requests for Proposals, developing the service charter, exploring funding, and consulting with a campus advisory group on requirements.
