Indonesia welcomes new internet data centre

An international tech company has launched its first internet data centre (IDC) in Indonesia. The cloud products and service provider aim to support businesses in the country and the region by strengthening its global footprint with established infrastructure spanning 27 regions and 61 availability zones.

To put things into perspective, Indonesia is one of the fastest-growing public cloud markets in the Asia Pacific with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25% and expected to increase its market size to US$0.8 billion by 2023. The new IDC in the country is positioned to fulfil the growing need for cloud services in Indonesia and the region.

The tech company said that with a population of 270 million, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia. Given that its population structure is younger, it has a huge internet demographic dividend, and its mobile internet market is quickly developing. They added that the IDC can help the country reach its promising cloud computing potential.

The IDC is looking to provide businesses in Indonesia with a secure, reliable, and high-performance public cloud service. The tech developers also provide global access and a rich array of services to governments and organisations that need advanced infrastructure and a resilient cyber environment.

Located in the CBD of Jakarta, the IDC is now in full operation, completing the backbone access and networking of all major Indonesian and global internet services providers, and combining the tech company’s own high-quality border gateway protocol to cover the entire country. The launch of the IDC in Indonesia gives customers and users access to disruptive tech, reducing access delays to data and applications, and helping businesses and organisations in the country accelerate their digital transformation. It also helps customers meet regulatory and compliance requirements, providing more disaster recovery options in the whole APAC region.

With 24/7 security and infrastructure support, the new IDC in Indonesia attained certifications that prove its high-level safety and security standards, namely the Uptime Institute Tier III – Design & Facility, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, ISO 14001 and SNI (local standard).

The establishment of the new IDC will support the growing needs of a wide range of industries in the country, from financial services, internet and e-commerce to entertainment, gaming, and education.

Accordingly, reports from industry experts define data centres as facilities that centralise an organisation’s IT operations and equipment, and where it stores, manages, and disseminates its data. Data centres may be physical or virtual repositories of a network’s most critical systems, ensuring the proper, uninterrupted functioning of the network. Hence, the security and reliability of data centres and their information are of utmost importance to organisations; perhaps even more important than energy considerations, particularly for operators who have not fully metered the different parts of their operations.

In considering their functions, as in most more developed economies, data centres in Indonesia serve a wide range of sectors and industries from the internet, including manufacturing, government, education, traditional media, commerce, energy, transportation and logistics, finance, medical and health services, and others. Although each data centre has a unique design, they can generally be classified based on their location, ownership, energy use, and or availability. Typically, a data centre constitutes these elements: facility, support infrastructure, IT equipment, and operations staff.

However, reports say that data centres are among the most sophisticated industrial facilities in modern societies but are rife with inefficiencies. Data centres are said to be the crown jewels of global business as all international companies and governments must rely on them to deliver business value much greater than their costs. The leading information and communications technology (ICT) companies have mastered how to extract that business value, but for companies and governments whose primary business is not computing, the story is more complicated as the extent of inefficiency is not only great but mostly unknown.
