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 a holistic cloud solution providing global connectivity, colocation and managed 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 leveraging cloud services to increase their ability to be agile and flexible to keep up with client demand, 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 current technology delivery challenges or new project. Because of our experience and extensive network of partners, we’re able to challenge existing IT consumption models to find the best solution for you. After helping you assess and optimize the right network, cloud and data center solutions for your business, we will help you plan and transition to ensure the smoothest migration possible. Once integration of either your existing or new applications is complete, we'll provide you with the right mix of managed services to run and operate your environment. Whether you do it yourself or leverage CDW's managed engineering expertise to run your environment, we will help you reach your business goals.

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 leverages data centers that are cross connected to the highest-performing cloud solutions available. These data center ecosystems are privately networked via low latency transport to provide the performance and security your business requires. CDW wraps these world-class assets in our managed services to deliver a seamless experience through two Enterprise Command Centers (ECCs).

AGILITY & SCALABILITY ACHIEVED 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.


Your Cloud, Managed by CDW

Whether you need to leverage existing technology investments, extend those technologies into cloud-based environments or transition to a managed hybrid cloud, we have solutions that fit your needs. Our experienced, certified engineers design and manage highly stable, fault-tolerant data centers while handling the daily maintenance so you don’t have to. We can work with you to build a custom solution in the following areas:

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Managed Hosting: Cross infrastructure maintenance off your to-do list.
  • Backup as a Service (BaaS) Manage your growing data needs with efficient cloud storage and backups.
  • Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS): Protect your network and your data.
  • Desktop as a Service (DaaS): Users can access their virtual desktops on any device.
  • Hosted Exchange: Move your email to the cloud.
  • Unified Communication as a Service (UCaaS) and Contact Center: Cut down on telephony costs by hosting communications in the cloud.
