Monthly recurring revenue is up 24% on a year-to-year basis compared with last year’s first six months, with a corresponding rise in profitability, on the strength of contract renewal rates exceeding 90%. Every geographic region has shown impressive growth, with new large enterprise accounts in North America, EMEA, and APAC as well as strong growth with each major OEM partner.

Daniel Newton, CEO of CDS, said, “Through the pandemic we’ve been able to help our partners and end-user customers gain greater control over the evolution of their data centers, extend the useful life of their infrastructure and free up budget dollars to accelerate modernization efforts and meet the rising demands of their customers. Our partner-first approach and software-driven service and support platform Raytrix MVS are setting CDS apart from the low-value third-party maintenance industry and its conflicting and often damaging practices.”
