About VirtuIT Systems

VirtuIT Systems, founded in 2006, is a Systems Integrator and IT Managed Services provider focused on the delivery of Datacenter Infrastructure Solutions. Since our first days in business, we have approached our customers with the goal of finding a simple and elegant solution to their IT needs and problems. We find that all too often Service Providers tend to over-complicate the solution in the hopes of “adding value”. We believe, if you start with a strong foundation of highly skilled Engineers and solid processes, the value will follow.

We focus on our strengths, Enterprise Storage and Virtualized technologies, because we know that is where we can excel. The best way to characterize our philosophy is: “Decide what you want to do, be the best at it… and success will follow” That is how we approach our business…so far it is working. In fact, in 2013 VirtuIT was awarded position 128 on CRN’s Fastest Growing 150 Solution Providers list.

The average VirtuIT engineer spends about 30% of their time on formal skill enhancement. That could be a training class or a mandatory webinar in order to maintain a certain certification level. VirtuIT is proud to have over 70 years of combined technical skills under our roof. We believe that our engineers have the best skills in the business. In fact, most of them come from the same types of environments as our clients.

VirtuIT Systems is headquartered in Nanuet NY, and has an additional Sales office in Paramus NJ. Our existing Nanuet office and NOC is a 24 x 7 facility.
