Data centre development drive continues in Indonesia

Data centre development drive continues in Indonesia

The latest in what appears to be a fast-growing number of data centre development plans in Indonesia has just been announced.

PT Indointernet Tbk (Indonet), which claims more than 25 years of experience in ICT services and solutions in the country, says it has purchased land in South Jakarta for a data centre.

In fact, through its subsidiary PT Ekagrata Data Gemilang (EDG), the company has bought two plots of land of some 6,000 square metres on which to build.

EDG has pointed out that property prices, hit by the global pandemic, have declined lately, offering an incentive to buy land in prime locations for the construction and development of edge data centres.

According to the Data Centre Dynamics website, Indonet launched on the Indonesian Stock Exchange in February. The proceeds from the launch will be used to build the new data centre. The company already has two data centres – in Jakarta and South Tangerang.

Indonet started operations in 1994 as the first commercial private ISP in Indonesia. The company says its data centres offer high-end, multi-layered security, including servers stored in a secured environment with both physical and virtual security and firewall and encryption services. It also guarantees a disaster recovery plan and 24/7 on-site qualified engineers.

This news comes less than two weeks after Tencent Cloud, the public cloud services provider business of multinational technology conglomerate holding company Tencent, announced the launch of its first internet data centre in Indonesia.

Microsoft has similar plans, while Alibaba aims to open its third data centre in Indonesia early next year.
