This month, telecommunications provider Globe Telecom announced its new data center in Davao, Philippines. The facility will be built in the first quarter of 2017 to service Davao businesses, as well as those in Luzon and Visayas.
The company says that the new data center is set to shake up Davao City’s information and communications technology (ICT) industry in the Philippines, and that it will help boost the economy next year.
Globe Telecom claims that it is committed to spread ICT adoption across the country, as it aims to help enable a ‘digital nation’. Davao City is the second largest economy in the country.
Mike Frausing, Globe’s senior advisor for IT-enabled services group said :
Globe Business is aggressively ramping up on investments such as the Davao Data Center to help our enterprise clients achieve local and global competitiveness.
Instead of worrying about the maintenance of information, equipment, and assets, the data center will secure our customers’ ICT requirements and will allow them to focus on their day-to-day business operations.
