ePLDT’s expansion projects to boost data center power capacity

ePLDT, the data center and multi-cloud solutions subsidiary of the PLDT Group, completed several capacity expansion projects of its VITRO data centers located in the cities of Makati and Parañaque.

Citing the Structure Research’s Data Center Industry Report, the fully owned subsidiary of network provider PLDT said its 10 Vitro Data Centers have roughly 65% power share in terms of data center colocation space in the country. VITRO Sta. Rosa, ePLDT’s biggest hyperscale data center, will activate an initial facility capacity of 14MW in early 2024, which will further increase to 50MW once fully operational. The three concurrent construction projects will generate an additional 28MW, increasing the total power capacity of VITRO’s network of data centers by 82% in early 2024, from 34MW to 62MW.

“We continue to expand and transform our existing facilities to ensure these are always at par with hyperscalers’ global standards,” said Victor Genuino, president and CEO of ePLDT. “Simultaneously, we are progressing with the construction of ePLDT’s 11th state-of-the-art data center in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.”

This transformation includes the expansion of VITRO Makati 2 and Parañaque which will add 1,820 new racks ready for service as early as March of this year and an incremental 14MW to the total power capacity of VITRO.

“These expansions will allow us to deliver on the urgent requirements of our current roster of customers, while providing additional capacity to new customers this year as we prepare for the launch of VITRO Sta. Rosa in the first quarter of 2024,” Genuino said.
