STT GDC Philippines Expands Capacity in Three Data Centers
Additional capacity well-positioned to serve businesses in metro areas
ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (Philippines) (STT GDC Philippines), a joint venture between Globe, the Ayala Corporation, and Singapore-based ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC), is set to expand its capacity by a total 5.2MW by Q3 of the year, in response to high market demand and the continuing digital transformation of the country.
This aggressive expansion across STT GDC Philippines' three existing data centers in Makati, Cavite and Quezon City will exceed the capacity of most single data centers locally and is designed to serve near-term capacity needs.
"The ever-growing demand for digital services has underscored the necessity for the private sector to actively contribute to the nation's digital transformation. As part of STT GDC Philippines’ growth strategy to support the country’s digital infrastructure build, this capacity expansion is part of the commitment made to support the government's endeavors in delivering reliable and robust digital infrastructure to our fellow Filipinos,” said Carlo Malana, President and CEO of STT GDC Philippines.
Malana also shared that they plan to scale operations to cater to global hyperscalers and other customer segments via greenfield builds, as well as create more job opportunities for those within the engineering, facilities management and energy management fields.
STT GDC Philippines currently operates five data centers with a total IT capacity of 22MW, with more than 95% of its power coming from renewable energy sources aligned with Globe, STT GDC, and the Ayala Group’s sustainability commitment.
The company aims to build sustainable and energy-efficient data centers by integrating sustainability principles in its value chain and operations and operate a total of over 150MW of IT capacity in the coming years. In May this year, the company announced its newest data center campus, STT Fairview, the largest and most interconnected, sustainable, carrier-neutral data center campus with an IT capacity of 124MW and the initial phase of operations planned for early 2025.
