Our 10 Vitro Data Centers control over 65% of the nation's data center colocation space, according to the most current Structure Research Data Center Industry Report. We are constantly expanding and updating our existing facilities to ensure that they consistently satisfy the high standards set by hyper scalers on a global scale. According to Victor S. Genuino, president and chief executive officer of ePLDT, work on the company's 11th cutting-edge data center is also progressing.

This change includes the expansion of VITRO Makati 2 and Paraaque, which will bring 1,820 more racks online as early as March of this year, as well as an additional 14MW to VITRO's overall power capacity.

"We've added an extra room to our VITRO Makati 2's fourth and fifth levels and growing our VITRO Paranaque. As we prepare to launch VITRO Sta. Rosa in the first quarter of 2024, these expansions will allow us to satisfy the pressing needs of our current client base while also providing more capacity to prospective customers this year.

VITRO Sta. Rosa, ePLDT's largest hyperscale data center, will begin operations in early 2024 with a 14 MW facility capacity. When fully operating, the capacity will be increased to 50 MW.

The three current building projects will increase the total power capacity of VITRO's network of data centers by 82% in early 2024, from 34MW to 62MW, by generating an additional 28MW.

ePLDT is a fully-owned subsidiary of PLDT and a vital enabler of the nation's pervasive digital footprint and rising digital economy, with over 20 years of data center experience in the country.
