What is Smart Hands Support?

Smart Hands is 24/7 on-site, operational on-demand support service for troubleshooting, remote management, and installation of data center clients’ equipment. Smart Hands refers to an individual or team of specialized technicians stationed on-site that can quickly respond to problems that may arise within your data center. Smart Hands are usually billed by the hour and include things like management of colocation equipment, rack and stack, circuit testing, complex cable configurations, equipment testing, troubleshooting, setting up a firewall, and rack and stack.

Volico Smart Hands Services

Every data center offers some degree of onsite support, but only dedicated smart hands teams go above and beyond to benefit colocation customers.

Through our smart hands service, we provide our customers with 24/7 physical onsite eyes and hands to help with their IT equipment. Excellent response times, improved security and dedicated technical support contributed to high satisfaction among Volico Data Centers clients. Smart hands service saves you from driving hours to the data center for a five-minute fix.
