    "To empower small business owners to easily start and run their businesses, we need an agile IT infrastructure freed from the constraints that hardware OEMs often impose on how and when we upgrade existing infrastructure, retire legacy systems and maintain our IT environment. Curvature's flexible options for hardware procurement and infrastructure maintenance have taken out significant cost without impacting service levels, enabling us to deploy our IT resources to better serve GoDaddy's customers."
  • Christine Tenneson, Research Director, Infrastructure Services, Gartner
    "Hardware maintenance is increasingly being considered as 'nonstrategic IT' spending and procurement, with the result being that IT professionals are seeking low-cost alternatives to expensive OEM contracts and pricing…Enterprises' need to reduce capital expenditures (capex) spend in networking and data centers is a supporting factor to consider TPMs. Some enterprises consider the flexibility and customized support from TPMs as an advantage."1
