PLDT offers cloud solutions to SMEs
PLDT in a statement said it is now offering PLDT Cloud, a suite of cloud-delivered solutions designed to support any business with customizable computing resources, such as networks, servers, storage, applications, and other services.
“Over the years, PLDT has steadily invested in infrastructure assembling the necessary building blocks to create the most reliable cloud to date, providing infinite capacity of computing power and accessibility while maintaining reliability and security,” said PLDT VP and Head of PLDT ALPHA Enterprise Jovy Hernandez.
PLDT Cloud is hosted in the company’s network of PLDT VITRO Data Centers – the first purposely built data center in the Philippines which has enterprise-grade reliability. It is also powered by PLDT’s domestic fiber optic network (DFON) which spans 54,000 kilometers nationwide.
By using its own infrastructure, PLDT Cloud is able to provide reliability and scalability, wherein customers only pay for what they consume as the Cloud conforms and expands according to the size of the business.
PLDT is also aggressively promoting PLDT Cloud in SMEs. According to PLDT SME Nation VP and Head Kat Luna-Abelarde, entrepreneurs contribute highly to our economy’s growth but the cost of putting up a business here often constrains their IT capabilities, since capital expenditure would be preferably invested in their core operating functions,” says.
With the growth of cloud computing, barriers to entry has been eased since cloud-based services require minimal IT expertise.
“Companies can now focus on operations, without worrying about their IT infrastructure,” said Abelarde. “And with all the benefits of PLDT Cloud, we are encouraging more SMEs to adopt cloud-based computing services,” she added.
