A Helping Hand When You Need It

CoreSite offers Remote Hands services to our customers in order to resolve a multitude of emergency and routine technical tasks. By partially outsourcing the installation, operation and management of a deployment to the expert technicians within a CoreSite facility, customers can focus on other important aspects of their business.

We’re On-Site When You Can’t Be

When your IT staff is not located near your CoreSite deployment, tasks such as recycling device power, verifying power status or reconnecting equipment are difficult to accomplish on the fly. CoreSite's Remote Hands service performs these simple tasks for our customers so they don’t have to spend precious travel time and budgets on flipping a switch.
