PLDT expands data center network to Subic

PLDT’s data center PLDT Alpha Enterprise has expanded its network of world-class data centers with the launch of Vitro Data Center Subic.

The new Subic location will allow PLDT Alpha Enterprise to deliver top class, end-to-end IT infrastructure solutions to large corporations north of Luzon as well as provide Manila-based companies with a highly secure backup site for its business continuity requirements.

Eric Alberto, PLDT executive vice president and head of Enterprise and International and Carrier Business of PLDT and Smart, said the launch of Vitro Subic is another step toward fulfilling PLDT Alpha Enterprise’s role as the true trusted expert partner for building globally competitive businesses.

“Vitro Subic provides our enterprise customers with another data center option north of Luzon,” he added.

Vitro Subic delivers redundant and high-capacity connectivity around the globe, with a robust telecommunications infrastructure powered by PLDT.

The building employs top of the line systems for power supply, security, cooling, fire protection, and monitoring to ensure the smooth operation of the data center as well as the servers housed in it.

Vitro Subic offers 24/7 assistance through a team of experienced technical support personnel, who can be dedicated to any account.
