Data center service provider Beeinfotech PH (Bee Information Technology PH Inc.) is confident that the Philippine data center market is ready to meet the needs of large-scale global enterprises.

(ICT) of the country.
Recent forecasts have revealed that developments in Asia-Pacific make the region a prime destination for hyperscalers. According to Frost & Sullivan, APAC will dominate all other regions as the world’s largest data center market by 2025. The company also noted that the Philippines is expected to experience a data center growth boom, with a 24% average increase in data. supplying the center within three to five years. This was highlighted by the Ministry of Trade and Industry at a recent online event announcing the arrival of hyperscale companies in the country.
âThese projections show how the country’s ICT capabilities have improved dramatically over the years. It is a testament that the Philippines is ready to play a central role in ensuring that the online services that people around the world use daily and enjoy continuing to host large scale business infrastructure on our shores â said Reynaldo Huergas, president of Beeinfotech PH and CEO.
Hyperscale refers to the expansion of large resources in a data center to quickly adapt to customer demand. The companies that have this capability are mostly IT companies that process a lot of data in real time through their online services, such as Google, Microsoft, and Amazon.
Huergas notes that while these companies have their own data centers, there are logistical considerations that allow them to co-locate or host infrastructure within data center partners that already have the facilities. Beeinfotech PH’s own multi-million peso facility âThe HIVEâ launched in August, for example, has storage space of over 3,000 pesos well suited for rapidly scaling resources.
âIt will take years for companies to build their data center, not only because of the construction itself, but because of several hurdles such as paperwork and permits that must be met first. By co-locating resources with a local data center partner, large-scale enterprises can immediately deploy to meet customer demand immediately, âadds Huergas.
The Philippines as the Next Leading Data Center for Hyperscalers
Beeinfotech PH notes that several large-scale companies have been eyeing the Philippines for quite some time. The country’s positive relations with East and West make it a gateway for both to expand into the growing APAC market, while allowing companies in the region to stand out in the rest of the world. . Beeinfotech PH also cites that surrounding data centers in other ASEAN countries have become too crowded to support the critical compute areas needed by large-scale businesses.
The growing number of submarine cables boosting the country’s connectivity is also attracting global companies. Currently, there are 10 international submarine cable systems providing connectivity to the Philippines, and by 2024 there will be five more transpacific submarine cables connecting the nation to the rest of the world.
Beeinfotech PH also argues that high profile Internet use by Filipinos makes expansion in the Philippines more lucrative than ever due to the potential to tap into a digital savvy market of nearly one hundred million online users. .
âHigh internet usage by Filipinos translates into a profitable market for hyperscalers. But to reach them first, hyperscalers need to bring their resources closer together by expanding or collocating. The closer their presence, the faster the delivery of their content, allowing them to attract and retain a large audience, âsaid Maricar Nepomuceno, senior vice president of Beeinfotech PH, Strategic Planning and Business Development.
Another reason hyperscalers are showing up is the growing data center market in the Philippines. Beeinfotech PH is one of the few data center service providers in the Philippines with the facilities to host large scale businesses. In addition to extending truly telecommunications neutral and tailor-made colocation services, its The HIVE facility offers an open canvas in its premises to meet all stringent requirements and allow large-scale businesses more freedom in their methods. roommate.
