MANILA, Philippines — The Lucio Tan Group, Inc., led by its President and COO Michael Tan, turned over an upgraded high performance data center fully equipped with mega servers and other hardware components to University of the Philippines (UP) Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) College of Science.
