The facility, on the outskirts of Manila, has a capacity for around 100 racks and can support loads between 5kW and 12kW. Operations are expected to commence in November 2023.

The data center is designed to Tier III standards and uses an "eco-friendly" ventilation and air conditioning system and uses energy-efficient equipment, a rainwater catchment system, and solar panels to generate electricity.

“The completion of our new data hall in STT Makati is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of excellence and innovation. This facility offers an opportunity for businesses to enjoy the advantages of having collocation space in a next-generation, hyperscaler grade data center for a fraction of the cost,” said Carlo Malana, president and CEO, STT GDC Philippines.

STT GDC Philippines, a joint venture between Globe, Ayala Corporation, and Singapore's STT GDC, is currently working on a 124MW development in Quezon City, Manila, and has three other data centers in Metro Manila and one each in Cavite and Davao.

In June 2023 the company announced plans to expand three of its data centers by a total of 5.2MW: Makati, Cavite, and Quezon City.
