SUBIC BAY FREEPORT – PLDT Alpha Enterprise has brought to Subic worry-free data center services for businesses with the launching of the Vitro Data Center here in ceremonies held at the Subic Bay Yacht Club recently.

These services include co-location, hosting, business continuity, facilities management, virtual private servers, data security, network management and other managed IT services.

Converging with Vitro Data Center, it has beefed up its services portfolio with highly scalable and secure world-class facility with fault-tolerant environment and 24/7 professional support from certified information technology teams. VITRO Data Center is the country’s first purposely-built, industrial-strength data center.

Leveraging on the PLDT Group’s robust telecommunications infrastructure, VITRO provides redundant and high-capacity connectivity nationwide and overseas. “Combining the reach of the PLDT network and the strength of VITRO’s data infrastructure, PLDT Alpha Enterprise is better able to deliver top-class, end-to-end ICT solutions to its discerning clientele,” said Ernesto R. Alberto, PLDT Executive Vice President and Head of Enterprise and International and Carrier Business.

While powered by PLDT, the data center’s carrier neutrality also gives clients the freedom to reach diverse audiences with services delivered in the best way possible as well as enjoy industry leading Service Level Agreements (SLA) that cover both co-location and connectivity.

VITRO is the first Internet data center in the country to be certified for the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System and ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System standards.  It is also certified for the ISO 27001:2005 Information Security Management System standard and accredited by the Philippine Export Zone Authority (PEZA).

The convergence of PLDT Alpha Enterprise and VITRO Data Center is expected to yield big benefits for the business community.

Offering topnotch IT solutions combined with unparalleled customer service, PLDT can assure organizations that their needs are capably handled by expert hands.

SBMA Chairman & Administrator Roberto V. Garcia  lauded the project as another milestone in the development of the Subic Bay Freeport into a truly-responsive business hub in the country.

“This is in line with the board resolution we passed declaring the Subic Bay Freeport Zone as a Business Operations Resiliency Zone,” said SBMA Director Benjamin E. Antonio III, an IT expert and proponent of the idea.  -30-
