THE COMPANY’S LARGEST FACILITY TO DATE
The Philippines arm of ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC Philippines) has just announced that it is expanding its footprint in Asia with the development of data center facility in Quezon City, Philippines.
Named as STT Fairview, the new data center project marks the company’s largest and most interconnected carrier-neutral facility in the country and largest single project across its global portfolio. As designed, STT Fairview will comprise four buildings with a gross floor area of over 83,000 square meters, offering 124MW of total potential IT load capacity once fully developed.
“We are confident that we will be able to capture new demand while helping our customers meet their own sustainability ambitions with this new and differentiated data center capacity. This also presents an opportunity to nurture local talent in digital and green skills that will be much needed in the future,” said Carlo Malana, Chief Executive Officer, STT GDC Philippines.
“With the Philippines’ digital transformation gaining headway, STT GDC’s new facility will be an important addition in the data center space in the country, where the market is underserved. This will provide crucial support for the growing digital industry not just in the country but also in the region, and will set a new standard of environment-friendly data centres in the Philippines,” said Ernest Cu, President and CEO of Globe Group, a co-venturer of STT GDC.
In line with the company’s sustainability plans, STT Fairview will be developed with solutions that reduce embodied carbon, provide support for housing liquid-cooled solutions and servers based on customer requirements, leverage AI and machine learning (ML) technology for energy usage optimization, and in general – the new facility is expected to meet international standards such as a LEED® Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), Uptime Institute Tier III, and TIA-942 Rated 3.
Also in Asia, ST Telemedia Global Data Centers (STT GDC) recently announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Government of Uttar Pradesh to establish data centers in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
