Public cloud services coming to Philippines

Cloud services in the Philippines are to be enhanced following a new agreement for dedicated cloud infrastructure. The market-leading operator PLDT has partnered with NEC Philippines, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Japan’s NEC Corporation, to provide and maintain the Cloud Computing Infrastructure for its IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) offering.

PLDT’s IaaS enables enterprises to reduce their IT infrastructure or management expenses, with computing resources such as virtual data centres and machines in a cloud network that can simply be accessed and managed from any web browser.  This solution allows for the rapid deployment as well as immediate scaling when the number of users increases; enterprises also enjoy computing power on demand, paying only for actual usage while still enjoying full control of these computing resources.

This implementation at PLDT is the first cloud project for NEC in the Philippines. PLDT’s public cloud service is envisioned to help accelerate the adoption of cloud computing technology locally, as it would bring the benefits of cloud computing to a wider audience.
