Strengthening Data Centres in the Philippines for a Sustainable Future

As organisations evolve to become more resilient and future-proof, a pioneer and premier data centre service provider in the country is constantly upgrading its network of globally certified data centre facilities to better serve enterprises both locally and globally.

According to the CEO of a data centre service provider, the goal is to be a trusted partner to organisations in developing agile business continuity and resiliency plans, adapting to new ways of customer engagement, and improving the experience of their colocation clients’ end-consumers.

“Our organisation has long been catering to the mission-critical operations of enterprises since it entered the data centre market in 2000. From then on, the company has been the preferred primary data centre of the largest local organisations and the most prominent global technology providers. By being a trusted brand further ignites our unbreakable commitment to delivering world-class services not only to local enterprises but also to multinational companies and hyperscales,” he said.

The global data centre market will reach $174 billion by 2023, while the data centre market in Asia is expected to surpass that of the West within the next five years.

“Digitisation and technological advances bring us hurtling towards a new, more integrated future, and the demand for data centres and the value for data continue to increase. However, with this spike in growth and development, there is also a surge in the demand for more valuable, more sustainable, efficient, adaptive, and resilient data centre infrastructures. This is a concern that data centre markets, especially developing markets like the Philippines, need to address,” explained the Business Vice President, Secure Power Division of a global specialist in energy management and automation for the Philippines.

Not all data centre owners will be equally prepared to handle the required new levels of operational agility. However, if risks and flaws in existing data centre systems are identified early on, stakeholders will have a better chance of engineering a smooth transition to a more dynamic future.

The leading Data Centre also has the country’s largest network of carrier-neutral data centres strategically located throughout Luzon, the Visayas and Mindanao, with local and international telecommunications companies providing network connections and diversity for its colocation customers. It currently has over 9,000 racks, which is the most in the Philippines.

Moreover, the data centre facilities are staffed by technical experts, including nearly 100 certified engineers with a wide range of industry-relevant certifications and more than 21 years of actual data centre expertise. “Our data centre facilities and capabilities assure our customers that we maintain global best practices in our operations to effectively address their common challenges as they seek business resiliency and customer reach,” he added.

All the company’s data centres are managed and operated by professionals who adhere to ISO standards. The data centres also meet the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC), Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA), and NTT Communications standards. The data centres are also PCI-DSS-accredited, which is preferred by financial institutions such as fintech, e-commerce, and payment gateway providers.

To continuously improve customer service, the company recently announced several transformation programmes to drive sustainability in its data centre facilities in Pasig and Paranaque. Through power system upgrades and equipment modernisation, the programmes aim to improve data centres’ power efficiency, redundancy, and resiliency.

The global pandemic has accelerated the growth of emerging data centre markets, with the Philippines ranking among Asia’s fastest-growing. As the data centre industry continues to expand at a rapid pace, and as demand for a more sustainable, efficient, and integrated digital future grows, more global technology companies are looking to build digital facilities to meet regional demand amid challenges.
