The new building will have an additional 1,408-sq. m. floor space, providing additional capacity to serve new and existing data center customers and part of the Globe Business core network. According to Globe Business, the purposely built building is designed with redundant N+1 configuration, giving customers peace of mind since their data is housed within a stable, resilient and redundant environment. In addition, the Globe Data Center provides 24/7 security for the entire structure which is centrally and automatically monitored, particularly the electromechanical equipment and auxiliary systems, to ensure a stable operating environment. Separate areas are built for common racks, caged areas, and high-density equipment based on customer requirements. It is equipped with a separate generator set and uninterrupted power supply-battery room. Precision Air Handling Units or PAHUs provide proper internal cooling systems. Globe Business head Jesus Romero said the company has the largest data centers in the country, with four of at least 300 sq. m. each in Makati, Quezon City, and Cebu and two others in Manila and Mandaluyong. Romero said the a new data center is being put up in Cavite, while its Makati data center is being expanded as well. ?Once completed, the undisputed leadership position of Globe Business is thereby further strengthened, and with a firm foothold in the industry. No other data center has the breadth, depth and scale of this structure and magnitude,” he said. Romero said Globe has been a pioneer in the data center business since more than 11 years ago. ?This expansion only signifies that we are getting a lot more customers and their trust. With the current trend of enterprises moving their data center facilities toward managed services, I think it is really a good sign that companies are finding a lot of value in it,? he said. Company officials confirmed the target completion of whole infrastructure by Jan. 2013. It is earmarked to be of the same stature as the other Globe Business data centers which have three global industry certifications: ISO 9001:2008 for Quality Management System, ISO 27001:2005 for Information Security Management System and BS 25999:2007 for Business Continuity Management System.]]>
