CDW Acquires Sirius, Expands IT Solutions Capabilities for Federal Agencies
CDW has acquired Sirius Computer Solutions, one of the largest U.S. IT solutions integrators, in a deal that is expected to accelerate and enhance its capabilities in a wide range of areas, including hybrid infrastructure, security, digital and data innovation, and cloud and managed services.
Sirius’ capabilities include helping an agency within the Commerce Department deploy hyperconverged infrastructure and software-defined networking tools ahead of end-of-life and end-of-support dates on much of the agency’s hardware infrastructure. Those tools helped the agency simplify its data center operations and increase agility while using a common platform for all workloads across private, public and hybrid cloud deployments.
Sirius also helped a Defense Department agency deploy an artificial intelligence-enabled supercomputing solution with built-in storage capacity that scaled to enhance and simplify the agency’s daily mission operations. The turnkey solution helped the agency rapidly deploy revolutionary new infrastructure for AI workloads immediately upon delivery.
