I have a Mac server and now I'm unable to remote or even to SSH to reboot since its out of free ram and I can't use SSH to force it restart or not even be able to remote to the screen to restart the server

Is there anyway to achieve this other than call the internet server center to hard reset??

Unless you have an XServe and you configured the Lights-Out Management system so you can access it remotely: Nope.
