who we are

Northwest Regional Data Center began as a nonprofit consortium for shared mainframe services, providing local universities with the enormous computing power they require without shouldering the full costs of mainframe ownership.

Today, we continue to evolve by offering software, infrastructure, storage and other data center capabilities as a service to Florida's higher education institutions, K-12 school districts, and state and local government agencies — at a significant cost savings.

Our goal is to help smaller organizations, or those with technology challenges, by providing enterprise-level solutions at a reduced cost.
