Built in downtown Jakarta, Indonesia, EDGE1 has 60MW of IT Load and five floors of data hall which can accommodate up to 1,300 racks.
Over 55% out of the total IT load has already been contracted, the company said in a statement.
Stephanus Oscar, CEO of EDGE DC, said: “EDGE1 is our stepping stone in pioneering the edge data centre in Indonesia with the aim to create a highly connected ecosystem close to the end-users and support the next generation of digital businesses in Indonesia.
“We are committed to building world-class data centre facilities in downtown Jakarta with future plans to build over 40 MW of IT load capacity to ensure scalability for our customers.”
EDGE DC has also acquired a second site with a land size of 64,600 sq ft in the Jakarta area.
The combination of Indonesia’s rapidly growing digital economy, accelerating enterprise cloud adoption, and the proliferation of start-up companies, is driving this demand for colocation and new data centres.
Indonet’s CEO, Karla Winata said: “With more and more businesses shifting towards greater technology and digital adoption, providing critical IT infrastructure is a natural progression for us and is complementary to our existing business.
“EDGE DC provides a unique value proposition that combines scalable world-class infrastructure with a strategic location close to the major network hub of Indonesia. With the added benefit of Indonet’s range of network solutions, customers at EDGE DC will also be able to experience high-speed interconnectivity required for businesses to scale quickly.”
In addition to the data centre launch, EDGE DC has also partnered up with PT DCI Indonesia Tbk (DCI).
Under the partnership, EDGE DC has adopted DCI’s platform in terms of infrastructure design, operational standards, servicea as well as SLAs.
DCI Indonesia’s CEO, Toto Sugir, commented: “We are excited to have EDGE DC under the DCI platform as we continue to support the business growth of our customers.
“As EDGE1 and DCI are strategically located in different locations serviced by different power sources, this represents an ideal opportunity to serve as a primary and disaster recovery centre (DRC) for customers or even as separate availability zones (AZs) for cloud providers.”
