Now You Can Focus on
Growth Not Maintenance

For most businesses, technology is a means to an end. The more time your team spends managing your infrastructure, the less time they have to work towards business objectives. CDW can relieve some of this burden by helping you manage your most complex infrastructure, freeing you to focus on growing your business and delighting your customers. Our IT experts have the knowledge and experience to deliver connectivity, colocation, managed and cloud services tailored to your needs and goals.

Overcoming the complexity of the cloud

Between large capital investments, constant maintenance and the increasing need for a highly specialized staff, your on-premises infrastructure could be more trouble than it's worth. Many of your competitors are transitioning to cloud services, but the sheer complexity of the offerings is overwhelming — not to mention considerations such as security, regulatory compliance and overall cost. It's a lot to handle.

CDW's aggregation, infrastructure and managed services

Regardless of the application, workload or challenge, we can ease your transition to the cloud by taking a holistic view of your network and data center. After helping you identify the right cloud, data center, storage, networking and unified communications technologies for your business, we can connect you with industry-leading partners and help you negotiate optimal pricing. Our low-latency global connectivity solutions will give you the performance and service levels you need to keep your business growing and thriving.

Flexible solutions that grow with your business

Get Guaranteed Uptime: We offer industry-leading service level agreements (SLAs) based on uptime requirements. Proactive monitoring means issues are addressed immediately and effectively.

Partnerships in All the Right Places: Our industry-leading telecommunications and cloud services portfolio gives you access to hybrid cloud solutions from 1,100 hosting and data center providers from around the globe.

The Control and Compliance You Need: You'll always have full access to your infrastructure when you need it. Plus, we'll make sure relevant compliance standards such as SSAE-16, SOC1, SOC2, HIPPA, PCI, and NIST are met.

IT Expertise You Can Trust: Through a single point of contact, you can tap advice from a team of more than 250 coworkers who manage your environment.

Connectivity, Colocation, Managed & Cloud Services

Building and maintaining a data center is a massive undertaking that requires enormous capital expenditures and specialized expertise. Plus, an on-premises data center is vulnerable to service interruption and data loss in the event of an outage or natural disaster. To reduce the burden on your staff and ensure business continuity, CDW can provide colocation services that let you take advantage of cloud computing regardless of your network or geographic requirements. We can manage your infrastructure in one of our two Enterprise Command Centers (ECCs) in the U.S. or connect you with 1,100 partner colocation facilities across the globe.

You've Got Scalability in the Cloud

A rigid IT infrastructure can restrain growth and produce spiraling costs. Unfortunately, many organizations lack the resources to take full advantage of new technology. Cloud solutions can help you reach your growth and revenue goals, providing the IT capabilities you need in a way that is scalable, usable and budget-friendly.

At CDW, we specialize in migrating, integrating and managing the cloud services that your organization needs, allowing you to focus on your core mission, rather than IT operations. See how we can help you add scale and infrastructure where it’s needed, when it’s needed, at manageable cost.
