ePLDT, through its subsidiary, VITRO Inc., is working to enhance the Philippines' position as a growing data center hub in the Asia Pacific by opening the country's largest and first true hyperscale data center facility. Located on a 5-hectare property in Santa Rosa, Laguna, the 50 MW capacity VITRO Sta Rosa (VSR) is set to launch in July. To ensure power availability and redundancy for clients starting to use the facility in June, VSR's dedicated Meralco switching station will be energized by April 2024.

To create a true carrier-neutral facility, VITRO Inc. has partnered with major telcos and internet service providers like Radius, Eastern Communications, InfiniVAN, and PLDT. This partnership aims to strengthen the telco ecosystem within the facility before its launch, with more partnerships expected to be announced soon.

President and CEO, Victor Emmanuel S. Genuino, stated that the recent advancements in data center services align with PLDT Group's vision of establishing digital infrastructure to support the nation's digital transformation. VSR is a massive 50-megawatt hyperscale facility designed to be Rated 3-Certified and Rated 4-Ready. It features three fiber routes for network diversity, resilience, and carrier-neutrality, and will implement sustainability practices based on LEED standards.

Established in 2000 as the data center arm of ePLDT, VITRO is a pioneer in hyperscale-grade data centers in the Philippines, with 10 world-class facilities. VITRO Inc. is the leading data center service provider in the country, hosting a digital ecosystem of telcos, content delivery networks, enterprises, hyperscalers, and the public sector.

Chief Commercial Officer, Gary F. Ignacio, highlighted the company's expertise and operational experience in providing over 30,000sqm of colocation space across major business districts in the Philippines, catering to the needs of local and global hyperscalers. With a commitment to excellence and innovation in the data center business, VITRO Inc. and the PLDT Group aim to deliver secure, reliable, and cutting-edge data center solutions to support businesses' critical operations.
