Standing on a one-hectare property, the new Para?aque facility provide a telco-grade, carrier-neutral international data center. Among the international standards for data center environments that IPC observes are ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-conditioning Engineers), as well as being certified for ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems and ISO 27001:2005 Information Security Management Systems.

According to IPC president Rene Huergas, ?This brand new facility enhances our data center capacity and operations dramatically, and is testament to the growing demand for co-location services across various industries in the country and in the region.

?By implementing the necessary expansion to address this demand, we are able to support the increasing IT requirements of local and global enterprises, while further strengthening our foothold as a leading provider of world-class data center services.?

IPC?s Para?aque facility boasts of having redundant site infrastructure capacity components, dual active power supplies, multiple independent distribution paths serving the IT equipment, and concurrently maintainable site infrastructure.

When it comes to security, the facility is protected by seven layers of security, as compared to the usual four to five layers of security offered by other local data centers.

This is also supported by a 24×7 stationary and roving security, as well as a CCTV monitoring system with cameras that cover every aisle and nook of the entire facility.

IPC said the data center in Para?aque is the first facility in the country ?built expressly to be a true data center, not as a space repurposed or converted from existing structures.?

Designed to house up to 800 racks, it is seen to boost the company?s capacity to provide data center and co-location services to enterprises.

According to Huergas, ?the facility is capable of scaling up its operations, depending on market demand.? Aside from the Para?aque facility, IPC operates two additional data centers in the country.
