Northland provides secure colocation data centers to safely store your business’s data equipment and securely maintain your digital information. 

This is the perfect solution for businesses that do not want to build and maintain their own data center environments, need high amounts of bandwidth, and want a backup location for their data center. Northland’s colocation data centers are located in Syracuse, NY, and Utica, NY for local convenience. Our colocation services include features such as secure rack space, power, cooling, internet bandwidth, security, and monitoring. 

Our experienced network engineers work with you to design and implement a colocation solution that meets your business needs. Northland’s 24/7 monitoring system alerts us of any issues so that we can address them before there is any impact on your business.

What is colocation?

Colocation, also known as “colo,” is the practice of renting space for your servers at a provider’s data center facility. It is the perfect solution for companies that already own their own hardware, but want to augment its potential by renting more server space.

What is a colocation data center? 

Colocation data centers are highly secure data center facilities where companies can rent space, bandwidth for their computing services, and equipment. These facilities provide businesses with server cooling systems and climate control and reliable power.


This year the team at 2uTEC adopted the Northland Communications Business Unlimited solution. This comes with a very unique application for smart devices called MaxUC that enables communication anywhere. 2uTEC is a true partner of Northland and not another number as we felt with our previous provider. Thank you to the Northland Communications team for their dedication to our partnership.

Although we are locally owned, we have access to VOIP services through our national franchisor. We investigated that opportunity but went with Northland due to their outstanding local support. We were not disappointed. They paved the way for a smooth transition to VOIP in our 13 area offices. No question was too big or too small. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a quality product that is supported by smart people who go out of their way to make you successful.

We have used Northland Communications for at least ten years and will never go anywhere else for our phone and internet service. We also use their Business Unlimited solution too! It really allows our team to be mobile and helps us maintain our top-notch customer service too! Thank you Northland Communications for all that you do!

Our installation team was outstanding. We appreciate how diligent they were. They made our team feel confident and secure in the work being done. Thank you!

Working with Northland has been one of the easiest tasks as a business owner. Their kind and considerate staff have always gone above and beyond when it comes to service. Nothing is as reassuring as calling up when you have a technical issue, immediately getting an actual person, and having them remedy the situation without being transferred multiple times, or getting a supervisor involved. Whenever I speak to other business owners or colleagues, I always recommend Northland as a family-run, local business. I look forward to many more years working with James, Maureen, and their fantastic staff.

When we formed our firm in 2011, Northland was an easy choice for us—a local provider from our community, attentive and responsive to our needs. Northland will continue to be our valued and trusted partner.
