Located in the heart of the Clark ecozone, Vitro Clark, once fully operational, will cater to the region?s thriving business communities and planned IT hubs in Central Luzon, that could also serve the disaster recovery requirements for other businesses elsewhere. With a total investment of P1.3 billion when completed, the construction of the Vitro Clark facility will boost the growth of ICT-demanding industries in the area like the business process outsourcing and retail. ?This new data center will be compliant to global standards with enough rack space to accommodate the production requirements of the enterprises based here in Luzon, as well as the disaster recovery requirements of those based elsewhere,? said PLDT CEO Eric Alberto, who is also PLDT EVP and ePLDT president. Adding an additional 1,230 rack capacity to the PLDT Group, the 5-storey building will have 8-level access security control and redundant infrastructures to ensure highest uptime service level. Once it is fully complete, the PLDT Group will have eight operational commercial data centers with a combined rack capacity exceeding 8,000. The planned data center is anticipated to boost the region?s business communities and growing IT hubs. Recently, Metro Clark was reported to enter the top 100 list of 2015 Tholons International Top 100 Outsourcing Destinations Report, making it the 8th Philippine city in the list. Much like the new Vitro facility in Makati, the Vitro Clark will be based on TIA-942 and LEED standard guidelines and will undergo certifications once completed, ensuring global standards are implemented that will make it at par with data centers in advanced countries. ]]>
