ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (Philippines), a joint venture between Globe, Ayala Corporation, and Singapore-based ST Telemedia Global Data Centres (STT GDC), announced that it is expanding its footprint in Asia with the development of its largest and most interconnected carrier-neutral data center in the Philippines.
This announcement comes as the company celebrates its first anniversary milestone since the formation of the joint venture. The data center campus also marks STT GDCs’ single largest data center project development to date across its global portfolio.
“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 sustainability-driven data centers in the Philippines,” said Globe Group President and CEO Ernest Cu.
The STT Fairview data center campus will have over 83,000sqm of gross floor area across four buildings, offering a development potential of 124 megawatts of IT load capacity once fully built out. It is strategically positioned within Quezon City with access to nearby substations, as well as critical telecommunications, transportation links, and logistics, business and industry hubs.
This new data center campus will cater to both hyperscalers and enterprises, providing flexible and scalable low latency colocation options that are also sustainably built and operated.
In line with STT GDC’s groupwide focus and commitment towards carbon-neutral data center operations by 2030, STT Fairview will support the company’s sustainability goals with a market-leading design power usage effectiveness (PUE) and a host of sustainable features.
STT Fairview will include ready network connections to STT Makati, one of the most interconnected data centers in the Philippines, providing customers of the new data center campus immediate access to a rich selection of local and international network service providers, internet exchanges and submarine cable systems.
STT GDC Philippines already operates five data centers ((Cavite, Makati, Quezon City, Mandaluyong, and Davao) with a total IT capacity of 22MW, with more than 95% of its power coming from renewable energy sources.
