Day in the life: Data Center Technician

If you follow this blog you may have heard me mention TDS’ business VoIP solution, managedIP Hosted. Well, as I’ve learned since joining the TDS family several months ago, there’s a lot more to TDS than managedIP. A growing business sector for the company is TDS HMS (Hosted and Managed Services). TDS HMS consists of OneNeck IT Services Corp., Vital Support Systems, VISI Inc., and MSN Communications, Inc. TDS HMS companies specialize in engineering and management of IT infrastructure, including: hosted application management, managed hosting, and ReliaCloud™ enterprise cloud services.

Recently, I took a trip to Minnesota to spend a day with one of VISI’s Data Center Technicians and find out what it’s like working in one of the hottest industries. Now, Here’s my Day in the life of a Data Center Technician.
