Friday 17 February 2017 | 13:27 CET | News

Philippine operator PLDT, digital enterprise services arm ePLDT, has inaugurated its VITRO data center in Clark, Pampanga. The Vitro Clark facility is ePLDT’s ninth data center, following the recent inauguration of the Vitro data center facility in Davao City.

Vitro Clark is designed and built based on seismic zone 4 standards. This enables the facility to withstand earthquakes up to magnitude 8 on the Richter scale. Vitro Clark also employs eleven layers of physical security equipped with vein-scanning biometric devices. Vitro Clark is 194 meters with reference to sea level, and is 55 kilometers away from the nearest body of water. This minimizes risks relative to flooding and tsunamis, PLDT says.

The new data center facility is also just a few minutes away from an international airport, making it a hub for foreign enterprises to collocate their back-up infrastructure. Vitro Clark is a Rated-3 data center facility, based on the TIA-942 standards.
