VITRO Sta. Rosa will rise as the country’s largest data center campus by far ̶ a five-hectare property in the booming industrial city of Sta. Rosa in Laguna province. It is designed to be energy efficient, utilizing the latest innovations in cooling and power redundancy, Rated-3 certified and Rated-4 ready, and with the highest level of network diversity and resilience with at least three fiber routes from PLDT and other telco providers.

“VITRO Sta. Rosa is a landmark achievement for the PLDT Group and the Philippines. A lot of hyperscalers have already expressed their interest in colocating in our facility. Once it is complete, we will continue to build more data center facilities ahead of demand to anticipate the future requirements of our customers as they accelerate the adoption of cloud and AI technologies,” said Victor S. Genuino, President and CEO of ePLDT and VITRO Inc.
