Bee Information Technology PH Inc. (Beeinfotech PH) has opened what is being touted as the Philippines’ largest telco-neutral data center. Located in Pasig City, the Beeinfotech PH colocation facility covers a 19,000-square meter space spread across three floors of more than 6,000 square meters each. This gives Beeinfotech PH enough room to reach up to a 45U rack height and hold more than 3,000 racks, which is currently the largest number of racks within a single data center in the country.

“The ongoing pandemic has pushed companies and even the government to bolster their digital infrastructure and integrate more digital-based solutions to protect employees and better serve customers and the citizens. However, this endeavor can be difficult in the face of the economic impact of the pandemic and the increasing complexity in managing IT infrastructure. Our data center facility assists businesses in their digital transformation efforts by delivering critical IT management expertise and solutions that, once outsourced, can propel businesses further in their growth and development even in these difficult times,” said Beeinfotech PH President and CEO Reynaldo Huergas in a press statement.

Advantages of telco-neutrality

As a telco-neutral data center, Beeinfotech PH’s facility allows clients to choose among multiple connections from different telecommunications providers. This setup allows clients to select the connection that best suits their interests and needs. Additionally, telco-neutrality adds redundancy to a company’s connection. For example, if one network goes offline, Beeinfotech PH can simply transfer the client to another connection to maintain online accessibility.

The data center also provides bespoke colocation solutions which can reduce a company’s IT costs. Its floors follow the Open Design and Elastic Floor concepts so that Beeinfotech PH can meet certain client’s specifications such as special enclosures, zoning, and caging. Both designs make it easier to scale resources up or down, thereby providing a fully-operating expense model where clients only pay for the resources they need and use.

In addition, the Beeinfotech PH data center houses three dedicated sites that companies can utilize against the effects of the pandemic and other challenges in the future. Its Security Operations Center gives companies protection against cybercrime as it detects, analyzes, and immediately responds to incoming threats such as distributed denial-of-service attacks and phishing.

Meanwhile, its Network Operations Center monitors the entire network and maintains uptime at all times. Lastly, the Disaster Recovery Site is a specialized facility that organizations can use to recover and restore their infrastructure in case of disasters. By offering the three salient features, Beeinfotech PH delivers the resiliency that companies need to adapt and recover easily.
