Feb 08, 2023 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

The Philippine telco PLDT's facility and cloud subsidiary, ePLDT, is growing a number of its existing sites. The development of VITRO Makati 2 and Paraaque will add 1,820 service-ready racks and an additional 14MW by March of this year. Victor S. Genuino, president and chief executive officer of ePLDT, told the local press that the company has enlarged the fourth and fifth floors of Vitro Makati 2 and is now boosting the capacity of Vitro Paraaque. As they make preparations for the launch of Vitro Sta. Rosa within the first quarter of 2024, these advancements will enable them to meet the immediate needs of their current customer base while also providing additional capacity to new clients this year. 

Located in the Makati neighborhood of Manila at 222 Nicanor Garcia, the 16MW Vitro Makati 2 has an area of 86,100 square feet with a capacity of 3,600 racks. The 4MW Vitro Paraaqu facility, located in the Elorde Sports Compound in the Manila neighborhood of Paraaque, measures 32,300 square feet and has the potential to house 800 racks. PLDT's ePLDT/Vitro data center unit maintains at least 6,133 racks across ten data centers at present. The company revealed ambitions to increase its portfolio by 3,000 racks last year. In March last year, PLDT broke ground on its eleventh data center, a 100MW facility in Santa Rosa, located outside Manila. The initial 14MW phase is scheduled to go active at the beginning of 2024.
