The data center, which forms part of the DITO main campus headquarters, will rise on a one hectare property within the master-planned development that includes a fully equipped network operations center, serve-call center, regional center, and a research and development (R&D) segment.
Due to its strategic location and disaster resiliency, DITO envisions CGC to be a key area in the ongoing infrastructure rollout, and to be the main location where it will host its central telecommunications infrastructure network.
“The decision of DITO is continued testament to CGC’s vision to create a smart, safe, and sustainable environment for Philippine and international businesses in the country,” said Wilfredo Placino, president of ULI.
DITO PMO lead Benedicto Lacsamana said its data center is a critical component to sustain the company’s commercial operations center, designed after Google’s campus-style headquarters.
With its proximity to the Clark International Airport and other critical transportation hubs, and provisions for structures that are disaster-ready, on top of ready access to the educated and skilled talent pool within the area, CGC poised to be the central business district of North and Central Luzon.
