We are now the largest provider of third party Dell EMC support anywhere in the world. Our OEM-trained and qualified engineers deliver Dell EMC third party maintenance of the highest standard, keeping your storage on line, and dramatically reducing the total cost of ownership.

Dell EMC third party storage support provisions

Lowering the cost of Dell EMC storage maintenance
When Dell EMC storage hardware reaches EOL, sales reps will advise immediate replacement - even if the system continues to function perfectly. CDS offer your business a far more cost-effective solution – a Dell EMC third party maintenance agreement that protects your post warranty equipment, thereby extending its lifespan.
Using third party support services from CDS, customers have realized savings of up to 50% on the equivalent service from Dell EMC, helping to boost the return on hardware investment.
Our maintenance services allow you to keep using equipment for as long as it continues to meet your business data needs, allowing you to divert cash savings to other strategic projects. From discontinued product lines like Celerra, to newer platforms like Data Domain deduplication units and Connectrix/Brocade SAN switches, our engineers can monitor, maintain and troubleshoot them all.
