Nerdio's Story

A few snippets of our history; from before Nerdio was even an idea, up to present day. Scroll away.


Nerdio’s founders met way back in 2005, where they were running a small-business IT services company. Back then, most of their time was spent performing break-fix tasks, as well as backing up data that had been stored locally at each business. There had to be a better way.

So, they fixed that problem by providing online backup services where they’d host all of a customer’s data. But how much of their customers’ IT infrastructure could and should they look after?

Surprisingly (or not so surprisingly), everyone loved having someone else to look after all of their IT needs, so the team began offering this unique service to all of their customers.

Over the years, they became experts in data center operations, virtualization technologies, and storage technologies. By 2009, the group was doing complete VDI deployments (before VDI was a thing).


Then, they figured out how to deliver IT infrastructure services by secure private network. Soon enough, there were users around the world and the company was growing rapidly, and at 100% recurring revenue by 2010.

2016 was the magical year that Nerdio was born (you know, figuratively), bringing users automation of complete IT environments in the cloud. Taking what we learned from those years as a service provider – we standardized, productized, and deployed what became Nerdio for Private Cloud. We also partnered up with some cool tech leaders like Kaseya, Mimecast, Kaspersky, VMware, and more.


In 2017, Nerdio went public… cloud, that is. We launched Nerdio for Azure, automation that totally simplifies the provisioning, management, and optimization on Microsoft’s trusted cloud.

In 2018, we kept upping our product management and development game with major new features and functionality like white labeling, an Azure Cost Calculator, an Azure packaging tool, Hybrid AD, Autoscaling for RDS Collections, and four new and totally awesome use cases: Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS), Line of Business (LOB) server management, Hosted RDS, and full IT stack (ITaaS).


And growth was no joke, either. Nerdio signed an agreement with SherWeb for global distribution. With more than 7,000 resellers worldwide, SherWeb is a great partner for our exponential growth strategy. And more major partnerships are in the works.

Nerdio locked in some prestigious recognition and awards. Among them: A 5-star rating from CRN’s 2018 Partner Program Guide and Chicago’s “Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” distinction. Not too shabby. Nerdio also received the coveted Co-Sell Ready designation from Microsoft. We already knew we were part of an elite group of global ISVs, but now we have the badge to prove it.

We’re not done with 2018 yet, so stay tuned for more news from us.


We believe in cutting-edge, bad*ss technology.

So no buggy software, no clunky interfaces, no learning curves, and no more headaches. Just effortless IT to make clients’ work lives a heck of a lot easier. Using the best of what’s out there, and architected with our own secret sauce added. We’re ready to rock when you are.

We’re tech nerds and geeks – and proud of it.

We obsess over things like the latest in virtual desktops, Exchange servers, TLS 128-bit email encryption, integration methodologies, and much more. We obviously love being up on all the latest tech, and our customers have come to expect that level of knowledge, commitment, and passion from us. It’s our duty as nerds.

While we’re a technology company, we also happen to have ridiculously good customer service behind us.

From the quality of MSPs that work with us, to our Nerdio support behind the scenes – we put ourselves in your shoes and always do the right thing.

We believe in empowerment of IT professionals.

Our aim is to free IT staff from the reactive and mundane, and elevate them to where they should always be – sitting at the leadership table as key technology-based drivers for their organizations.
