PLDT ANNOUNCES PLANS TO BUILD HYPERSCALE DATA CENTRE

PRESS RELEASE: With the projected increase in demand from global hyperscalers, PLDT plans to build the biggest data centre in the Philippines.

PLDT VP Nico Alcoseba said the company is set to build a data centre that is designed to serve the massive power and IT requirements of global hyperscalers.

The facility will have more power capacity than all of PLDT’s existing data centres combined, and will be a Tier-3 certified structure and Tier-4 ready once it starts operations.

PLDT officials were unavailable when sought for further details about the project.

“We are very optimistic and bullish about the hyperscaler demand in the enterprise sector. To support the growing needs of global technology giants and cloud service providers expanding in the region, we at the PLDT Group are proud to announce that we will be building the first hyperscaler data centre facility in the Philippines,” Alcoseba said in a statement.

PLDT is also “further enhancing its network of data centres” concurrent to the construction of a new facility.

“We at PLDT are continuously enhancing our existing data centres in three main ways. First, we are adding more power capacity per rack to support the dense and high-powered equipment of hyperscalers.

 

Second, we’re further enhancing the reliability and energy efficiency of our data centre facilities. And last, we’re also looking for ways to deliver renewable energy to support the carbon neutrality commitments of these companies.”

Currently, PLDT has 10 Vitro Data Centres across the country. These facilities are supported by the 524,000 kilometres of fibre optic cables spread across the Philippines.

They are also linked to the 14 international undersea cable systems and one terrestrial system that carry data in and out of the Philippines.
