PLDT unit teams up with Beijing-based cloud firm

PLDT Global Enterprise has partnered with CDS Global Cloud Co., Ltd. to link the Beijing-based firm’s cloud and infrastructure services to the Philippines.

The CDS global cloud will use PLDT’s private network interconnect (PNI) service out of Hong Kong and Singapore that links back to the Philippines. The PNI service is supported by the company’s international submarine cables.

“These cables bridge the PLDT public internet subscribers and users directly to CDS Global Cloud’s platforms,” PLDT said in a press release on Friday.

CDS Global Cloud, which is listed at the Shenzen stock market, offers global private networks, information technology solutions, and data-center related services.

The Philippines can access digital content through the nearest CDS global platform servers in Hong Kong and Singapore.

“This new partnership highlights the Philippine Digital Ecosystem’s strong relevance among global content delivery network and cloud service providers,” PLDT First Vice President and Enterprise Revenue Group Head Victor Y. Tria said.

“We are confident that this initiative will augment CDS Global’s value to the markets they serve by enhancing customer conversion and retention rate via the direct path linking users and content–made possible by the PNI solution we are providing.”

Hastings Holdings, Inc., a unit of PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund subsidiary MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., has a majority stake in BusinessWorld through the Philippine Star Group, which it controls.
