About Us

Experts in Solving Technical Issues Inside Agency Data Centers

The Company

StorageHawk, specializes in technology sales and consulting to all verticals of the Federal Government, including the Department of Defense, the intelligence community, and civilian agencies, as well as Fortune 500 companies. The company was founded in 2004.


If you need to categorize us, StorageHawk is most like a “value-added reseller.” But hardware and software from tier-one partners is just one component of the solutions we provide.  The other equally essential part is our proven expertise in using products to solve technical issues inside agency data centers. For us, technologies are tools. We choose the tools according to the task—and the results they produce.


So call us what you will. Our customers call us to help them meet their challenges and fix their issues—fast. See our Solutions to learn exactly how we do that.
