VITRO data centers

VITRO Data Center Interconnect (DCI) is a direct, carrier-grade, and well-secured private link between VITRO facilities available in 1Gbps, 10 Gbps, and 100 Gbps port speeds.

DCI allows easier and faster sharing of data between two separate VITRO Data Centers, simulating a local network while enabling seamless integration of resources for enterprises with their partners and service providers.

VITRO Internet Access (VIA) provides resilient global internet access for customers colocated in VITRO Data Centers. VIA provides an ideal connectivity set-up for enterprises in various industries needing secure and reliable global internet access through its diverse, automated routing and dedicated internet connection.

VITRO Internet Exchange (VIX) hosts the country’s richest and most diverse IP ecosystem in which local internet service providers such as telco giant PLDT, gaming and cable TV operators, and Cloud and Content Providers, are members.

With VIX, colocated clients gain direct access to over 85 million eyeballs and gigabytes of content from a single port. This significantly improves the quality of access for all members of VIX by localizing the content in VITRO and eliminating the need to utilize international links when retrieving data. This not only lowers network operating costs for enterprise VIX members, but also lessens latency and improves the internet experience of end-consumers.

“Our VITRO connectivity suite gives our clients full flexibility and the capability to connect to any network or point of interest inside and outside the country, and between any VITRO data center facility they choose to colocate in,” said Gary Ignacio, chief data center officer, ePLDT.
