ePLDT, the ICT arm of PLDT Enterprise on Tuesday said it is undertaking strategic transformation programs for its VITRO Data Center facilities in Pasig and Parañaque to better serve the digital requirements of industries today.
The transformation programs are set to drive sustainability for the two data centers and likewise make them at par with global data center standards and best practices to cater to the demand of the international market.
The programs also aim to fortify the power efficiency, redundancy, and resiliency of the data center facilities through power systems upgrades and equipment modernization.
“We at ePLDT have been fully supportive of the growth and security of our customers. We continuously strengthen our infrastructure and services, and with these VITRO data centers being transformed, we ensure business continuity and successful digital transformation of enterprises,” Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT president and chief executive and senior vice president & head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups said.
“Moreover, making our data centers sustainable and at par with global standards is imperative as we see Philippines becoming an attractive destination for global tech companies and hyperscalers. We believe that these initiatives will further help in opening the country’s doors to the global data center market,” Hernandez added.
ePLDT started the transformation of its first purpose-built data center in the Philippines in Pasig City in mid-2019. The three-year transformation project will optimize VITRO Pasig’s support infrastructure facility to generate more power capacity, and to accommodate and host more application requirements of its customers.
