Data Center in Indonesia: Then and now
In Indonesia, data centers were owned by companies for their business needs – providing their users with computing and IT resources in-house. Once a self-managed facility, the data center is now in high demand due to the growth of the digital economy.
The increase of internet users, technology adoptions, and e-commerce have created cloud platforms and colocation data centers more accessible for anyone who needs it. Some of the national operators like Telkom and DCI Indonesia are providing such facilities. And more global enterprises partner up with local companies to build their data centers in this country.
The business opportunity in the data center
Indonesia’s GDP in the digital economy is expected to contribute up to 18.87 % of Indonesia’s GDP in 2030. This means a big role for the data center as the demand in data volume is expected to increase each year
Datacenter operators are upgrading their capabilities to keep up with the pace; with more bandwidth and more power. For instance, Telkom has launched Hyperscale Data Center – a data center management that will become the largest data center in Indonesia whilst Amazon and its Amazon Web Services has invested 35 trillion for the data center in Karawang West Java industrial estate. More companies will move their data processing to cloud-based systems. This will drive the adoption of data centers along with artificial intelligence and automation.
In the next several years, cloud computing, big data, and online services continue to grow. And the requirements of data centers will not just be about cost competitiveness but also other important features such as security and energy efficiency are expected.
