CDW Cloud Collaboration
Use of ‘The Cloud’ for businesses has become a more popular concept as of late. It allows staff within companies to collaborate on projects no matter where they are in the world. CDW, a company incredibly popular in the Unified Collaboration world have just announced a brand new service which aims to take use of ‘The Cloud’ to the next level. Let me introduce you to Cloud Collaboration.
The Collaboration system from CDW delivers a healthy blend of various communication tools. This means that any user will have voice capability, video conferencing, instant messaging and contact center services right at their fingertips. The addition of ‘The Cloud’ to this system ensures that any user will be able to access the system no matter what device they are using or even where they are in the world. This is perfect for companies who may have employees spread out over a large geographical area, particularly those who are in the technological field. This is a huge step up from the traditional Unified Communication system.
Since the CDW Cloud Collaboration System uses a virtualized architecture it helps to bring down the costs of deployment for a company looking to introduce a collaboration system. However, despite the ‘cost cutting’, you can be sure that CDW is going to offer a better solution than anything that you could have installed in your place of work due to the amount of experience they have in this particular industry.
In addition to this, since the CDW Cloud Collaboration System is completely virtual a company would not need to hire copious amounts of IT staff in order to manage the system. This will all be done by CDW and a company can be sure that they will do the best job possible on it.
More importantly however, a managed system such as this will mean that you can have an incredibly powerful system at your fingertips which can grow with your company. It really is much more flexible than something which has a physical presence in your office.
Despite this being a brand new solution CDW is not new to the idea of Unified Communication. In the last 10 years, CDW has been involved in more than 4,000 deployments of the Cisco Unified Communication system. All of the equipment is housed in a state of the art Tier III-IV Facility owned by CDW. This data center stretches over 485,000 square feet and requires 8.2 megawatts of power in order to function. Of course, this means that CDW has the processes and equipment in place to deliver only the best in Virtualization, storage and optimization services.
So what does the experience of CDW mean to a company? Well, with the system architecture in place a company can be sure that their systems won’t fail when they need it most. There are plenty of companies out there who are looking to invest into cloud networks but very few have the systems in place to support it properly. In addition to this, businesses can rely on the experience of the company to ensure that any questions or problems are dealt with as soon as possible. This really is a system for businesses that are looking to ‘get big’.
