Data centre services provider Beeinfotech PH (Bee Information Technology PH Inc.) is ready to cater to the needs of global hyperscale companies, which could aid businesses that are increasingly becoming digital.
This is due to a variety of factors, including the growth of enterprise cloud and data centre adoption in the market, rising Internet use, and the recent improvements in the nation’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) capabilities, the company said.
Recent forecasts have revealed that developments in the Asia Pacific make the region a prime destination for hyperscalers. According to Frost & Sullivan, APAC will lead all the other regions as the top data center market in the world by 2025. The firm also noted that the Philippines is expected to boom in data center growth, with an average increase of 24 per cent in data center supply within the next three to five years. This was highlighted by the Philippines’ Department of Trade and Industry in a recent online event announcing the arrival of hyperscale companies in the country.
“These projections show how the country’s ICT abilities have vastly improved throughout the years. It’s a testament that the Philippines is ready to take on a pivotal role in ensuring that the online services people around the world use daily and enjoy keep running through hosting the infrastructure of hyperscale companies within shores,” said Reynaldo Huergas, Beeinfotech PH President and CEO.
Further, Huergas noted that despite these companies having their own data centres, certain logistical considerations make it much more feasible for them to colocate or host infrastructure within data center partners that already have the facilities. Beeinfotech PH’s own multi-million peso “The HIVE” facility launched in August, for example, has a 3,000-plus rack space well-suited for scaling resources quickly.
“It will take companies years to build their data centre, not just because of the construction itself, but due to several hurdles such as the paperwork and permits that need to be complied with first. By colocating resources to a local data centre partner, hyperscale companies can deploy immediately to answer customer demand at once,” added Huergas.
This development comes close on the heels of Beeinfotech opening its largest telco-neutral data centre in Philippines. This data centre has come up in Pasig City, in a 19,000-square meter space spread across three floors of more than 6,000 square meters each, the company said.
