ePLDT retains data center dominance in PH

PLDT’s ICT subsidiary ePLDT sustains its data center dominance in the Philippines as it further invests in increasing its total rack capacity. 

Currently, at 74% total rack utilization in its expansive network of VITRO data centers, the Group reported that they would be adding added 612 racks in their inventory.

PLDT and Smart President and CEO Alfredo Panlilio said, “We will continue to add more to ensure we are ahead of the demand not only for local enterprises but also for hyperscalers.”

He added that this expansion “supports the reinforced push of the government, particularly the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), for hyperscaler data centers as the second coming of the BPO industry.”

ePLDT is looking to further expand the capacity of three of its major VITRO data centers located in Makati, Paranaque, and Clark.

Moreover, ePLDT President Viboy Genuino added that they are “currently expanding capacity in three of our existing data center sites and building our 11th Vitro Data Center in Sta. Rosa.”

He specified that they are aiming to add 1,500 racks by the end of Q4 2022 and 1,500 racks by the end of 2023. 

“So all told, you’re looking at an additional 3,000 available racks from now until the end of next year,” said Genuino.
