VITRO Inc., a subsidiary of ePLDT and the data center arm of PLDT Inc. (PLDT) recently held a topping-off ceremony to mark the structural completion of the 50-MW VITRO Sta. Rosa, the country’s first true and most advanced hyperscale data center.

The construction milestone also signifies the readiness of VITRO Sta. Rosa for power integration and energization. In attendance were key representatives from VITRO Inc., and its construction partners MDBI Construction Corporation (a joint venture of Makati Development Corporation and Bouygues Batiment International) and Mace.

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.
