CDW offers free server virtualization assessments
CDW, a provider of technology products and services to business, government and education, today announced an assessment services offering for qualifying medium and large organizations to consider server virtualization at no cost and with minimal effort required from the participant.

The core of the offerings include a self-guided assessment (SGA) and a server virtualization assessment (SVA). CDW's server/storage specialists use the SGA findings gathered by the assessment tool to build and recommend a custom server virtualization solution. With the SVA, CDW's team assists in installing the data-collection tool and in building the virtualization solution.

"The current economic climate is leading all organizations to want to drive costs down, but reducing costs does not always mean doing less. Server virtualization reduces costs, but also increases data center capacity and resilience," said Pat Scheckel, vice president, Solution Practices, CDW. "CDW's Server Virtualization Assessment services help information technology managers determine the benefits of virtualization in concrete, realistic terms for their unique facilities."
