Florida's Leading Data Service Provider

who we are

The Northwest Regional Data Center (NWRDC) is Florida’s leading computing provider, delivering services to a wide range of universities, colleges, and K-12 school districts, as well as state, county, and city governments.

Established in 1972 under Florida State University, NWRDC began by offering mainframe services to universities across the state. Over the past decade, we have expanded to include a wide range of managed services well beyond the traditional footprint of the normal data center. And through multiple strategic business partnerships, we have positioned ourselves as Florida’s Cloud Broker, providing cybersecurity, cloud, and end-user support solutions at significant discounts.

NWRDC strengthened its commitment to serving the IT needs of Florida’s public and educational communities with the addition of the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC) in 2020 and the Florida State Data Center in 2022. With over 50 years of experience, we pride ourselves on our superior customer service, cost-effective solutions, and unwavering dedication to customer satisfaction.
