"These milestone initiatives validate Vibal’s transition into a business beyond printing. Ending the momentous event," shared by Vibal Group President and CEO Gus A. Vibal.

“Our custom cloud solutions will enable highly digital lifestyles and make everyday computing tasks simple, easy, and inter-connected, either physically, virtually, or both. Vibal offers custom cloud solutions that enable Filipinos to experience tomorrow’s technology today,” Vibal adds.

From accessible health records that verify an applicant’s medical history, store transactions that earn consumers special discounts to their favorite shops, and a national database that leads to fast, reliable disaster response efforts – cloud technology and mobile solutions will allow Filipinos to enjoy a truly 21st century lifestyle enabled by smart, mobile, and efficient solutions to everyday tasks and activities.

This is now possible with Vibal Cloud Services (VCS) custom cloud technologies developed by Vibal in partnership with global brand Hewlett-Packard (HP).

During the Vibal-HP Open House and Technology Fair held at Vibal’s headquarters in Araneta Avenue, Quezon City, Vibal Group President and CEO Gus A. Vibal explained that with cloud, government agencies and private firms can take advantage of scalable, on-demand cloud computing to better service digital lifestyle users. The 2-day event gathered government agencies, local printers and publishers, as well as foreign guests to showcase Vibal’s grand forays in digital printing and technology solutions designed for government, education, health and private enterprise.

Another major HP acquisition: the HP T230 digital printer, which is the first installation of its kind in Southeast Asia. This milestone makes Vibal the country’s biggest digital publisher with the addition of the HP T230 to its existing HP Indigo 5500 digital press.

Mr. Vibal shared that data center and IT infrastructure costs can easily surpass PhP40 million – excluding maintenance and administration costs. On the other hand, cloud services subscription (less than PhP300,000 a year) can result to significant savings by paying only for cost-effective hosting and storage services.

Vibal’s venture is made possible through a partnership with HP Enterprise division –the largest global business unit of HP that offers servers, storage, sofware and information technology services that enable enterprise and midmarket business customers to manage their current IT environments and transform them into a business enabler.

Clients can now be offered such printing innovations like high-speed variable printing; world-class, secure, fast and individualized testing systems; as well as other print-on-demand services. The HP T230 offers 400-feet printing speed per minute for mono and full-color jobs; incorporates high-speed data processing based on HP Blade Servers; and supports printing with 100% variable content at full press speed. Print job applications include books-on-demand, personalized notebooks, journals, magazines, variable test booklets, checks and ballots and credit card statements, among others. 

Vibal’s global partnership with HP now extends to both digital printing and data center hardware and cloud services that can be utilized by various government agencies and private enterprises. In partnership with other global technology providers, Vibal’s technology suite of featured solutions now include systems integration, network design and infrastructure; mobile and systems software development, cloud data centers, content digitization and distribution; encryption and digital security servers; and network equipment.

Furthermore, under VCS, the widest spectrum of IT applications will be addressed, such as enterprise applications, high-performance computing (HPC) and analytics; accessible and durable storage; and cost-effective web applications. All sensitive data, applications, and other files will be hosted in a Tier-3.5 data center location – the first in-country data center facility accredited by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), has ISO 9001:2000, ISO 27001:2005, and ISO 14001:2004 certification, and touted as the first green data center in the Philippines.
