What are remote hands?

Remote hands are a series of on-site, physical IT management and maintenance services provided by data center and colocation providers for an additional fee.

H5 Data Centers offers remote hands services as part of its standard colocation service offering. Our trained technicians are available 24x7 to be a physical extension of your organization to deploy, maintain, troubleshoot, and turndown your infrastructure.

Save a trip to the data center and order remote hands via our customer portal, AccessH5. There, our trained professional staff will help manage the remote hands ticket through to completion and to your satisfaction. Our incident management team will respond to your inquiry within 15 minutes of request and work can be requested immediately or scheduled at a future point in time that works with your operational requirements.
