Data Center Technical Services
You need the right mix of personnel to handle the full range of data center facilities and maintenance activities—but you don’t always have the time to recruit or train them. Salute finds and trains American military veterans to provide technical services with precision and dedication.
Salute can provide dedicated teams for specific projects, or supplemental staff to cover ongoing maintenance needs, on a temporary, long-term contract, or contract-to-permanent basis. Unlike many traditional staffing agencies, we encourage you to hire our employees, as part of our mission to foster data center career pathways for veterans.
