The integrated gaming and entertainment resort acquires Data Center Colocation Services from Globe Business.
City of Dreams Manila, an integrated gaming and entertainment resort destination operated and managed by Melco Crown Philippines (MCP) Resorts Corporation, recently obtained data center colocation and internet services from Globe Business, the information and communications technology (ICT) arm of Globe Telecom as part of its business continuity and disaster recovery strategy.
The dynamic and innovative resort complex will outsource their data management requirements and media storage to Globe Business. Located on an approximately 6.2-hectare site at the gateway to Entertainment City, City of Dreams of Manila offers entertainment, hotel, retail and dining and lifestyle experiences with aggregated gaming space, including VIP and mass-market gaming facilities with up to approximately 380 gaming tables, 1,700 slot machines and 1,700 electronic table games. Its operations will rely on the data center colocation service to keep each recorded and processed data safe in an off-site storage and a controlled environment.
“We pride ourselves in providing exhilarating experiences through world-class accommodations, amenities, and facilities, topnotch service, and our highly-trained people. We are committed to give the best service to our customers, and Globe is the first in mind as a partner in providing us ways to ensure that the standard of service that we offer stays the same in times of calamities with its best-in-class portfolio of ICT solutions,” says Geoff Andres, Property President of City of Dreams Manila.
