New data center provides Indonesian customers with world-class data center services and ability to expand global reach
PT Data Center Infrastructure Indonesia (PT DCI), in partnership with Equinix, Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company, today announced the opening of its data center facility located at Cibitung, West Java. Built and operated by PT DCI, the new data center will provide premium interconnection and data center services for local and global customers through Platform Equinix™.
Located at a prime industry complex within West Java, the new data center will provide significant capacity of approximately 65,000 gross square feet. The partnership, which was first announced in October 2012, will provide Indonesian customers with access to 4,000 enterprises, cloud, digital content and financial companies, including over 900 network service providers that currently are housed in Equinix data centers around the world. Equinix’s global customers will also be able to extend their market reach into Indonesia while enjoying a similar level of availability and reliability in Indonesia through PT DCI, as they do within Equinix International Business Exchange™ (IBX®) data centers.
As part of the partnership Equinix has provided extensive advisory support to PT DCI in the design and operations of the PT DCI data center and will continue to provide operational support to DCI and their Indonesian and global customers to ensure that they receive the same services, support and reliability they would experience in other Equinix IBX data centers. PT DCI has implemented disaster recovery response measures to comply with regulatory guidelines for disaster recovery and continuity of operations. For example, the new data center is staffed by experienced technicians who will safeguard equipment and provide technical support for customers.
“The exponential growth of Internet users and proliferation of smart mobile communication devices is driving strong demand for data center services in Indonesia,” said Marina Budiman, president director, PT DCI Indonesia. “The data center is designed to exceed global standards and provide customers with world-class services and access to global markets. In addition, the partnership with Equinix allows us to connect with local and international financial markets and offer customers a direct link to the Indonesia Internet Exchange.”
“Our customers are increasingly demanding capacity in Indonesia, which is one of the fastest and largest growing economies in South East Asia and seen as a hotbed for growth,” said Clement Goh, managing director, Equinix South Asia. “With the launch of the new data center, we can now offer customers the ability to grow their footprint in Indonesia within secure colocation facilities, allow them to connect with new partners and drive additional revenue opportunities.”
