Custom Built Private Data Center
Engineered upon request


All power is provisioned off of our fully redundant data center power grid, which is designed to provide 100% up-time. Power distribution options are designed specifically to meet your equipment needs and they are available in customized high output configurations not typically found in mainstream colocation facilities. Power is offered in AC and telco grade - 48v DC. DC power is more reliable and energy efficient than traditional AC power. Many manufacturers going "green" today offer DC power options for their gear.

Remote Hands

Remote Hands1

Data Center Technicians will perform "remote hands" services to assist clients by performing simple functions to their equipment within the colocation facilities if requested by the client. Remote Hands Service helps you increase your operation up-time and reduce costs by eliminating the need to dispatch your own technical personnel to Amnet to perform simple tasks.

Typical Remote hands tasks are:

  • Flipping a Switch or pressing a button
  • Hooking up a monitor & reporting what is on the screen
  • Typing customer-supplied commands
  • Basic observation and reporting on the environment
  • Securing cabling to connections
  • Management of components (cards, drives, memory)
  • Media and supply management
  • Complex cable configurations
  • Equipment Testing and Trouble Shooting
  • Trouble Ticket Management & Circuit Testing
