“Time and time again, CDI has demonstrated its ability to take on emerging technologies for the data center and develop sophisticated solutions and services around them,” George says. “Our team pioneered real-world solutions for advanced wireless technologies, security, IP telephony, the list goes on. We were among the earliest integrators capable of deploying and supporting private cloud infrastructure, notably technologies from EMC, Cisco and VMware that are part of the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) coalition. By becoming skilled in emerging technologies early in the game, CDI can help our clients innovate ahead of their competitors.”
