Dominant network Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) is bolstering its product line for corporate clients in Luzon as it supports the growth of businesses by helping them modernize and automate their operations.
In a statement on Wednesday, PLDT said it had opened its second “VITRO” data center in Subic Bay Freeport north of Metro Manila.
The company said the move would benefit “businesses based in Metro Manila and Northern Luzon in terms of providing continuity, data recovery and secure data and information management.”
“PLDT Subic Vitro data center provides enterprises a very secure location to host all their data and information, which is supported by unmatched ICT experience,” said Eric Alberto, PLDT executive vice president and head of the company’s enterprise and international carrier business.
“Through PLDT’s advanced telecommunications infrastructure, the data center is able to provide end-to-end IT infrastructure solutions and multiple options for organizations’ bandwidth requirements more cost-effectively,” Alberto said.
PLDT’s first data center facility was put up in Pasig City. It has received numerous accolades in recognition of its reliable and robust services.
The new facility in Subic would offer companies full management and telecommunications services essential in business such as co-location, server hosting, disaster recovery, data security and network management.
Housed in PLDT’s SubicTel facilities, the new data center will employ top-of-the-line systems for power supply, security, cooling, fire protection and monitoring to ensure that equipment runs smoothly. The new facility will also be maintained by PLDT’s in-house staff of engineers.
“The VITRO data center in Subic assures stability, security and reliability for the ICT demands of our clients, coupled with PLDT’s unparalleled robust domestic fiber network in the country, as well as robust wireless connectivity,” said Jovy Hernandez, head of PLDT’s Alpha Enterprise division.
