Over the years, businesses have seen the importance of having a facility with a secure, controlled environment, such as data centers, to house and protect their data and applications. Even with the emergence of cloud technologies, demand from enterprises for secure and reliable data centers remains high.
Converge has been offering data center colocation in the past years, and with the increasing demand for enterprise-grade data center colocation and connectivity, the company has deemed fit to improve its services through a state-of-the-art Reliance Data Center in Pasig.
Colocation is the practice of housing privately owned servers and networking equipment in a third-party data center.
Converge’s upgraded data center boasts improved power capacity and resiliency. Colocation customers have access to uninterrupted power to equipment with 2N full redundancy. Added to its 24/7 security system, which consists of closed-circuit cameras and alarm systems, are biometrics security systems to access rack pods.
A pod is an enclosure to house data center racks in which Converge uses an advanced Cold Aisle containment system in its design which greatly improves Power Usage Efficiency (PUE).
On top of these , Converge also offers Remote Hands services with its 24/7 data center operations team. It enables customers to delegate various onsite services to Converge’s professional data center engineers and assist them in planned or emergency activities on their colocated equipment, saving them costs on logistics and manpower. This is a real value, especially to global service providers with limited to no local presence in the country.
Aside from Manila, Converge has already unveiled its plans to invest in a P1 billion data center in Cebu to cater to the surging data requirements in digital services in the Visayas.
