EdgeConneX: EdgeConneX announces expansion plans in the Philippines

Oct 07, 2022 | Posted by MadalineDunn

EdgeConneX has announced a partnership with Aboitiz, a local firm in the Philippines, alongside its plans to build two data centers around Manila; one near the National Capital Region of Manila and the second in the Greater Manila Area.

Speaking about the partnership, Sabin Aboitiz, President, and CEO of the Aboitiz Group, said: “Businesses are increasingly turning to cloud service providers — or “hyperscalers” — for cost efficiency, flexibility, and scalability; and thus the need for data centers has never been more demanding. This trend will continue with certainty and speed, and our efforts to seize the opportunities it offers have been proven successful with this latest landmark infrastructure deal for the Aboitiz Group.”

Randy Brouckman, CEO of EdgeConneX, added: “In AIC, we have the ideal partner in the Philippines. They possess all of the local assets and expertise required to build out critical digital infrastructure that can best support our customers across the entire country. We look forward to investing in the digital economy of the Philippines and meeting our customers’ needs throughout the region. They complement our capabilities required to successfully capture this market opportunity.”

Further details, including specifications, have not yet been released.
