"The PLDT Group is investing in ensuring that the latest VITRO facility is at par with data centers in leading countries with world-class security features adhering to global-standard operations. Over the years, we have strived to ensure that PLDT is at the core of enabling this country to be digitally ready,” said PLDT EVP and ePLDT President and CEO Eric Alberto.
“When completed, VITRO Makati will add 3,600 full racks to our network of VITRO Data Centers and will ensure our readiness to support the growing ICT requirements of the enterprise market,” he adds.
Set to be completed by fourth quarter of this year, the newest VITRO Data Center will have the largest floor space among its current line of data centers at 18,000 square meters and will deploy 8-layer level security to safeguard customers’ critical equipment and data with maximum protection.
VITRO Makati will have data center-rated generators designed to run continuously to eliminate the need for periodic cut-over to other gensets during long commercial power failures. This ensures the continuous operations of client servers collocated at VITRO Makati, even during lengthened power outages.
The new Data Center will also have isolated rooms for the Air Handling Units (AHU) which are intended to increase security and privacy of client-availed collocation services. Maintenance work can be done without having to access or expose the client’s servers. This new configuration will also minimize the possibility of dust and dirt entering the colocation space. “As the trusted expert end-to-end ICT partner of the Enterprise market, we are set on maintaining our leadership in the data center business. Our newest VITRO Data Center is a game-changing milestone for the group as we expand our services and capacity for the increasing demand of our various clients,” said Jovy Hernandez, FVP & Head PLDT ALPHA Enterprise & SMART Enterprise Group. In addition to the new technology that the PLDT Group has invested in, VITRO Makati will also be PCI-DSS compliant and ISO certified, both globally-recognized and widely-required by multinational clients.
Strategically centered in Makati, VITRO’s fourth data center will largely cater to the colocation and other data center service requirements of large corporations, and the banking and finance companies with headquarters in the business district. The Makati facility will also be designed according to the TIA-942 infrastructure standards for data centers based on global parameters on network architecture, electrical design, system redundancy, network access control and security, and environmental power management.
The network of VITRO Data Centers currently operates three other facilities located in Subic, Cebu, and its flagship facility in Pasig having more than 2,000 racks capacity – currently the largest in the country. Aside from ePLDT VITRO, the PLDT Group also operates three other data center facilities under ePLDT subsidiary IP Converge Data Services.
“We have always been committed to investing in and expanding our data center business not only in building world-class facilities adhering to global standards but also in offering globally recognized services from colocation, hosting platforms, network and security services to big data dynamic platform. Proof to our commitment is our investment on the training and expertise certification for our personnel, to provide our enterprise customers with best-in-class service experience,” said ePLDT COO Nerisse Ramos.
Complementing its data center services is PLDT’s aggressive offering of cloud-based solutions and services under PLDT Cloud that packages high-performance IT business solutions at lower costs and centralized expertise for large enterprises and small-and-medium enterprises (SMEs.)
