Oracle announces ‘industry’s first fully-managed, on-premises cloud region’

Oracle announced the ‘industry’s first fully-managed, on-premises’ cloud region on Wednesday, bringing all their second-generation cloud services directly to customer data centers.

The Cloud@Customer service provides enterprise data centers with Oracle’s Autonomous Database and SaaS applications, starting at US$500k per month.

“[No other provider] gives you a complete public cloud behind your firewall, dedicated to you. This is a first in the cloud industry,” said Larry Ellison, Oracle’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, during a digital presentation.

Cloud adoption by enterprises is rapidly increasing, driven by the flexibility of subscription models, scalability and agility offered by cloud computing. 

Many businesses still often use hybrid solutions to run some of their workloads and cloud software on their own hardware within data centers due to data localisation requirements or the need for speedier connections.

But these hybrid cloud solutions typically limit the number of cloud features and services available in public cloud regions.

“Enterprise customers have told us they want the full experience of a public cloud on-premises to run their most important workloads,” said Clay Magouyrk, the Executive Vice President of Engineering at Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Oracle’s Cloud@Customer will bring more than 50 services to on-premises, providing ‘the highest levels of security’ and ‘strong isolation of customer data, which remain local to customer data centers’.

Deepak Mohan, Research Director at market intelligence firm IDC, said: “This represents a new direction for public cloud providers, who have historically offered only limited versions of their services to customer premises.”

Customers will be required to pay for only the services they consume, which will total an approximate spending commitment of US$18 million over three years, reported Reuters.

“This brings together public cloud service capability with the compliance, latency and co-location benefits of on premises—which can be a game changer for large scale digital transformation efforts at enterprises,” said Mr. Mohan.

Oracle announced the first to adopt their new service will be the largest consulting firm and IT solutions provider in Japan, Nomura Research Institute (NRI).

NRI will start by moving its SaaS applications, used by 70% of capital markets firms in Japan, from on-premises locations to an Oracle dedicated cloud region in its own data center.

The IT solutions provider will use Oracle Exadata to provide SOC2 reports based on Japanese security standards in financial industries, said Tomoshiro Takemoto, the Senior Corporate Managing Director at NRI.

Oracle also revealed the availability of their Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer as a standalone offering or as part of the new Cloud@Customer service.

This will combine the latest Database with their fastest platform, Exadata, to deliver cloud services in customer data centers without the challenge of data sovereignty laws or security concerns.

The Autonomous Database will allow organisations to automate systems to eliminate manual processes and reduce the risk of human error, ‘freeing developers from mundane maintenance tasks and enabling them to innovate and create more business value’, said Juan Loaiza, Executive Vice President for Mission-Critical Database Technologies at Oracle.

The new offerings were welcomed by global organisations, including enterprise cloud solutions provider, Samsung SDS, Japan’s the number one mobile carrier, NTT DoCoMo, and Japanese IT consultancy firm, RKK Computer Service.

Delivering Digital Innovation

Oracle’s new solutions have been celebrated by multinational companies for its ability to reduce operational costs and empower digital transformation efforts.

As a result, Oracle saw significant growth in cloud revenue for the final quarter of 2020 after opening a second cloud region in South Korea and being selected by Zoom to be their cloud infrastructure provider of choice to support remote working.

We will be joined by Oracle for an Executive Briefing to explore how you can manage your next digital transformation moves in a new world where digital is the driver of business.

This is a VIP-only event. Please contact to express your interest in joining this exclusive webinar.

TM to become Malaysia’s first end-to-end Cloud AI Infrastructure Service Provider with Huawei agreement

Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) has signed an agreement with Huawei to expand its cloud services and provide Malaysia with its first end-to-end cloud artificial intelligence infrastructure.

The TM Cloud α (Cloud Alpha) services are set to enable the next generation of innovation for its public sector and enterprise customers.

“TM is the only local player with its own state-of-the-art core data centers and cloud infrastructure with full data residency, locality and sovereignty in Malaysia and subjected to regulations in Malaysia,” said Dato’ Noor Kamarul, the Group Chief Executive Officer for TM.

Malaysia’s national telecommunications infrastructure provider will leverage Huawei’s cloud technology to offer cloud, AI and cybersecurity for their operations, spanning Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service.

“This collaboration with Huawei Malaysia is another milestone for TM ONE. We now have full cloud capability as a core offering from TM ONE to capture growth in Malaysia,” said Ahmad Taufek, the Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of TM ONE.

The industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 27% in the next five years, according to Mr. Taufek.

Digitalising Malaysia

The Cloud α solution is expected to fast-track digital transformation in Malaysia by introducing more smart services, big data innovations and the Internet of Things innovations.

Michael Yuen, the Chief Executive Officer of Huawei Malaysia, said: “I am confident we can develop a holistic ICT infrastructure together in line with the government’s move to spur Malaysia’s digital economy growth.”

The memorandum of agreement signed by TM ONE and Huawei acted as a commitment by the two companies to develop cloud and AI talent as well as drive foreign cloud and data transactions back to Malaysia.

Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Deputy Minister, Zahidi Zainul Abidin, said the agreement would boost Malaysia’s economic recovery and digital economy during the pandemic, which has demonstrated the need to rapidly adopt new technologies.

He added: “Malaysia will now focus on economic growth and towards reaping the full benefits of the Industrial Revolution 4.0. Therefore, today’s MoA is a step in the right direction.”

TM ONE’s Cloud α solutions was launched in April of this year, providing a foundation that enables blockchain, chatbot, data analytics and robotic process automation innovations, while remaining compliant with regulatory requirements like Bank Negara Malaysia’s Risk Management in Technology (RMiT).

Along with their Huawei agreement, TM ONE also welcomed the recent expansion of AWS into Malaysia with the availability of their Outposts.

“It will help us in our mission to enable the Malaysian public sector and enterprises to be more agile, while delivering better and more comprehensive services to end customers. This is in line with TM Group’s commitment in enabling Digital Malaysia,” said Mr. Taufek.

The enterprise and public sector business solutions arm of Telecommunications Company Telekom Malaysia Berhad found AWS Outposts to be an important part of TM ONE Cloud Alpha’s hybrid cloud strategy.

Alibaba Cloud plans Southeast Asia expansion with new Indonesia data center and Philippines alliance

Alibaba Cloud has set in motion plans to expand into Southeast Asia with the announcement of their third data center in Indonesia and a Philippines Ecosystem Alliance.

The initiatives were driven by fast-growing demand from customers who are adopting cloud technologies and progressing digital transformation strategies at a rapid pace.

Not one, not two, but three data centers

Indonesia’s data center market is fueled by an increasing number of Internet and social media users as well as greater connectivity and cloud adoption across the country.

The Minister of Communication and Information Technology, Johnny G. Plate believed Alibaba Cloud’s third data center will accelerate the country’s digital transformation efforts.

The expansion comes after Alibaba Cloud built its first data center in 2018, and a second last year. Upon completion of the third in 2021, Alibaba Cloud will have 64 availability zones across 21 regions worldwide.

The digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group also announced its plan to build the first data scrubbing center in the country to help customers fend off cyberattacks, particularly affecting the finance and gaming industries.

“Cyberattacks have grown in intensity and sophistication, especially at a time when more businesses are moving their IT infrastructure onto cloud,” said Leon Chen as Country Manager at Alibaba Cloud Indonesia.

Alibaba Cloud’s new scrubbing center will help detect, analyse and remove large volumes of malicious traffic to defend distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

As Southeast Asia’s largest and fastest growing digital economy, other tech giants including Google and AWS have also expanded their services in Indonesia.

Alibaba Cloud was also named the largest IaaS provider in Asia Pacific by a recent Gartner report, while Tencent Cloud was third across the region and Huawei Cloud placed third in China.

Accelerating digital transformation in the Philippines

Along with their announcement for a third data center in Indonesia, Alibaba Cloud also revealed the formation of the Alibaba Cloud Philippines Ecosystem Alliance to speed up digital transformation in the country.

“The Philippines is a booming market with a big group of young and digital savvy population. There is strong demand for digital transformation in accordance with the local government’s ‘cloud-first’ initiative,” said Leo Liu, General Manager of Hong Kong, Macau, Korea and Philippines for Alibaba Cloud Intelligence.

The alliance will bring together thousands of Alibaba Cloud’s partners and customers to promote cloud adoption and analytics intelligence for businesses of all sizes.

“Digitalisation will be the global economic bedrock in the post-COVID era. This is why we are determined to enhance our efforts in supporting businesses here in their digital transformation journeys,” said Allen Guo, Alibaba Cloud’s Head for Philippines.

The global cloud provider will invest US$283 million this year to train partners and create solutions as well as committing to the aim of training 50,000 IT professionals and certifying at least 10,000 of these within the next three years.

Alibaba Cloud recently worked with telecommunications giant PLDT to provide hybrid cloud and security solutions for eSports matches during the Southeast Asian Games in 2019.

PLDT’s Enterprise and International Data Regional Head for Asia Pacific, Jeff Mendoza, said: “We are looking forward to fortifying this partnership and cooperation as we face this new era of cloud modernisation.”

Over the next three years, the largest provider of public cloud services in China looks to continue its global expansion by investing an additional US$28 billion on its cloud infrastructure, from operating systems, servers, to chips and networks.

AWS expands Asia presence, making Outposts available in India, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand

Amazon Web Services has expanded its presence in Asia by launching AWS Outposts in India, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand, enabling businesses to gain greater native access to AWS services.

Customers can use the Outposts to help them with large projects requiring low latency access to on-premises systems as well as local data processing and storage.

“With AWS Outposts, our customers can benefit from the accelerated pace of innovation in the cloud, while securely storing and processing sensitive data on-premises,” said Conor McNamara, the Managing Director of ASEAN at AWS.

The Outposts enable businesses to work with the AWS Partner Network, assisting application migration to AWS.

“As AWS Outposts is fully managed by AWS, our customers can also focus on their end users, and driving innovation that differentiates their businesses, while leaving the responsibility of managing the infrastructure to us,” added Mr. McNamara.

Empowering hybrid cloud solutions

A number of businesses have celebrated the launch of AWS Outposts in Asia, which empower hybrid cloud solutions and transform customer user experience.

Our customers will benefit from AWS’s rapid pace of innovation in cloud infrastructure services while being able to store and process data on-premises,” said Mr. Ahmad Taufek Omar, the Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of TM ONE.

The enterprise and public sector business solutions arm of Telecommunications Company Telekom Malaysia Berhad found AWS Outposts to be an important part of TM ONE Cloud Alpha’s hybrid cloud strategy.

“It will help us in our mission to enable the Malaysian public sector and enterprises to be more agile, while delivering better and more comprehensive services to end customers. This is in line with TM Group’s commitment in enabling Digital Malaysia,” said Mr. Omar.

Outposts enable customers to run services like Elastic Compute Cloud, which allows users to reduce demand on physical servers by running virtual servers as if they were in the cloud.

“Incorporating hybrid cloud will address the need for data residency and edge computing, all accessed through our leading next generation converged network. Our goal is to accelerate cloud adoption and digital transformation journeys for businesses,” said Claire Featherstone, the Head of Maxis Technology Practices and Maxis Cloud Centre of Excellence, a leading Malaysia-based communications provider.

AWS Outposts are replicas of hardware infrastructure, services and API that run in Amazon data centers. With the availability of Outposts, customers can connect to the nearest AWS Regions in Asia, including Singapore.

InfoFabrica, a Singapore-based IT hybrid cloud consulting and managed services company, welcomed the announcement.

“Many of our enterprise customers look for hybrid cloud solutions that will allow them to move workloads and data seamlessly between on-premises assets and the AWS cloud,” said Mr. Li Wen Chi, Managing Director of InfoFabrica Pte Ltd.

The general availability in India, Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand follows the launch of AWS Outposts in Singapore and Indonesia earlier this year.

Google opens first cloud region in Indonesia to meet growing digital demands

Google Cloud has officially opened their first cloud region in Indonesia.

The new Google Cloud Platform region in Jakarta looks to accelerate the growth of developers and enterprises embracing cloud technology to drive one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

“Indonesia is full of opportunity. You’re one of the most creative, dynamic and entrepreneurial countries in Southeast Asia,” said Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google and Alphabet.

A booming digital economy

Indonesia has more than 150 million Internet users and the fastest growing digital economy in Southeast Asia, expanding by more than 40% each year.

Due to rising digitisation and Internet traffic, Indonesia’s data center market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 11%, with more than US$1 billion in investments.

“The most exciting thing about Indonesia’s booming digital economy is how you’re using it to improve lives – from a new generation of young Indonesians working on big ideas for the future to new startups, whose innovations are spreading around the world,” said Mr. Pichai.

With lower latency access to data, artificial intelligence and analytics tools, the new region aims to support organisations in industries like financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, retail and logistics.

“I look forward to seeing how the region will use Google Cloud to build new businesses and unleash new opportunities for people in Indonesia and around the world,” added Mr. Pichai.

Google recently announced a partnership with XL Axiata to drive cloud migration in Indonesia by modernising their infrastructure and migrating 70% of workloads to the cloud within the next three years.

“Our collaboration around Partner Interconnect will enable companies of all sizes in Indonesia to gain access to high-speed connectivity to create a whole new world of experiences for their customers,” said Megawaty Khie, the Country Director of Google Cloud in Indonesia.

“Advancing forward together.”

Maju Sama-Sama or “advancing forward together” is Google Indonesia’s motto. The tech giant has made commitments to develop talent critical to digital transformation journeys and build a resilient future.

Google will empower this by delivering 150,000 hands-on training labs in Indonesia this year as well as digital scholarships with Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology to help people become GCP certified.

Johnny Plate, Indonesia’s Minister of Communication and Informatics, said: “Google Cloud’s presence will certainly be an important part of the strengthening and development of digitally-based technology in Indonesia.”

The Government of Indonesia hopes Google’s data center can take part in making the security and privacy of data stronger as well as accelerate the adoption of data analytics, AI and machine learning.

Indonesia is currently accelerating its digital transformation towards the digital society. The country is focusing on the completion of telecommunications infrastructure development, with specific attention to the middle mile and last mile networks. The country also aims to accelerate the adoption of 5G, construct national and Government data centers and develop digital talent.

“The launch of Google Cloud in Indonesia is an example of excellent synergy where the business world, private sector, join hands to support Government policy to meet the needs of state-of-the-art technology,” said Mr. Plate.

The new Google Cloud region in Indonesia adds to Google’s portfolio of nine locations in Asia Pacific, enabling Indonesian customers to localise their cloud usage rather than using services in other regions like Singapore and Sydney.

Other cloud providers like AWS and Microsoft are also looking to expand out into Indonesia to join Google and Alibaba.

Alibaba Cloud has already built its second data center in Indonesia and announced US$28 billion worth of data center investments covering 21 regions, including Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore to support digital transformation in a post-pandemic world.

Microsoft, one of Indonesia’s major cloud service providers, is also eying up the possibility of building a data center by investing US$2.5 billion to develop cloud-computing systems.

The largest public cloud provider in the world, Amazon Web Services, has announced plans to build several interconnected data centers by 2022. 

Industry Minister, Agus Gumiwang, said: “This investment can boost Indonesia to become a strategic digital hub. The AWS region in Indonesia will certainly support the startup ecosystem so it can grow rapidly.”

Indonesia has a vibrant technological future ahead – it will certainly be exciting to see the innovations resulting from the rapidly growing digital economy.

The Philippines updates Cloud First Policy in transition to ‘new normal’ amidst COVID-19 pandemic

The Philippines has amended its Cloud First Policy to transition to a “new normal” brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has recognised the vital role of ICT by providing clearer instructions on policy coverage, data classification and data security to meet global standards.

“We are paving the way to an ICT policy environment that is more responsive to current needs, further filling gaps in our country’s digitalisation efforts,” said DICT Secretary, Gregorio B. Honasan II.

The Cloud First Policy looks to promote cloud computing as the preferred technology for the Philippine Government’s administration and delivery of services to efficiently serve the public.

Mr Honasan said: “The shift to a truly digital government is much more pressing today.”

This shift is expected to empower greater flexibility, security, innovation and cost-efficiency.

“The DICT is committed to cover all aspects of this, primarily policies that would enable government digital transformation to ensure that we maximize ICT during this transition to the new normal,” said Mr Honasan.

Clarifying ‘Cloud First’

The amendments made to the Cloud First Policy clarify which institutions in the Philippines will be covered, and which are only encouraged to adopt cloud technology.

The policy will cover all departments, bureaus, offices and agencies of the Executive Branch as well as state universities and colleges. The Congress, Judiciary, Independent Constitutional Commissions and Ombudsman will only be encouraged to adopt the cloud services.

The amendments in the Cloud First Policy also clarify the Government’s position on data sovereignty, which was ‘confused with the concept of data residency’ in the previous version.

In the new version, the application of Philippine laws over foreign counterparts will be asserted over the data owned or processed by the Government or any entity that has links to the Philippines. 

This means that most data passing through the Philippines will be subject to the Data Privacy Act of 2012, which ‘protects the human right to privacy of communication while ensuring free flow of information to promote innovation and growth’ and the inherent obligation of the state to ensure that data is secured and protected.

Additional provisions on ICT capacity building and development of essential skills to meet international and local standards in the Philippines are also included in the Cloud First Policy.

The Philippines fell from 9th in 2018 to 11th in the 2020 Cloud Readiness Index by the Asia Cloud Computing Association. But there may be renewed optimism for a strong cloud future in the Philippines with these amendments, along with the Philippine Digital Transformation Strategy and more connectivity coming from DITO’s new data center.

Adapting to the ‘new normal’ in the Philippines

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, various governmental departments in the Philippines have adopted cloud technology to adapt their services.

The Department of Education recently partnered with Microsoft to provide a virtual ‘graduation-in-a-box’ to students in schools nationwide.

“The future of the Philippines lies in the hands of the brilliant young minds sitting in its classrooms today and we are privileged to empower not just their learning experience, but also their future,” said Andres Ortola, Microsoft Philippines Country General Manager.

The Supreme Court in the Philippines has also worked with Microsoft to continue legal proceedings through cloud-based videoconferencing hearings for the first time.

Mr Ortola said: “I am so proud to be a part of this historic moment in the Philippines.”

Enabling migration to the cloud

In the original Cloud First Policy in 2017, the Philippines encouraged migration to the cloud to enable greater automation and agility. The DICT recommended a three-step process to achieve migration.

First, take stock by defining objectives, determine data classifications and map security considerations. 

Second, plan migration by defining responsibilities, identifying skill gaps and choosing a suitable cloud environment. 

And lastly, migrate and manage through testing workloads, tracking performance and training staff through service level agreements with cloud vendors.

Microsoft and NTT DATA have announced an alliance to accelerate enterprise customer’s digital transformation using Microsoft Azure as their preferred cloud solution.

The partnership will bring together NTT DATA’s global IT services and Microsoft’s cloud platform and AI technologies to help accelerate business and increase workplace productivity.

“Together, we will continue exploring new solutions opportunities and added value for our clients,” said Alex Simons, the Corporate Vice President of ID Program Management at Microsoft.

The key initiatives of the strategic collaboration include innovating workstyle, transforming NTT DATA’s organisational culture and enhancing solutions for customers to digitally transform.

Plans to support digital transformation by developing around 10,000 employees worldwide who are qualified with digital technologies and Microsoft cloud certifications are being drawn up by NTT DATA.

“NTT DATA is committed to helping enterprises realise their digital transformation,” said Yo Honma, the President and CEO of NTT DATA.

The companies will look to streamline business operations and increase productivity by enhancing NTT DATA’s everis knowler, their knowledge management solution and WinActor, a robotics process automation tool.

Microsoft Azure’s migration and managed services will be implemented for mission-critical systems such as SAP and support the acceleration of digital transformation across industries.

Both companies will propose workstyle changes to clients in all industries through focused security offerings and collaboration tools.

Legacy data protection technology is severely hindering digital transformation say global enterprise CXOs

Legacy data protection technology is severely hindering digital transformation say global enterprise CXOs

Almost half of global organisations are being hindered in their digital transformation journeys by legacy data protection technology and IT skills shortages.

The latest industry data in the Veeam 2020 Data protection Trends Report revealed that 40% of organisations rely on legacy systems to protect their data, with 95% of enterprises suffering unexpected outages lasting almost two hours on average.

“Legacy solutions were intended to protect data in physical data centers in the past, but they’re so outdated and complex that they cost more money, time, resources and trouble than realized,” said Danny Allan, the CTO and SVP of Product Strategy at Veeam.

Downtime and outages can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, pointing to an urgent need to modernise systems including data protection and move to focus on business continuity to enable digital transformation.

Mr Allan added: “It’s great to see the global drive to embrace technology to deliver a richer user experience, however the Achilles’ Heel still seems to be how to protect and manage data across the hybrid cloud.”

The appetite for digital transformation certainly exists at the top of most CXOs agendas, as spending is expected to hit US$7.4 trillion between 2020 and 2023. Respondents in the study also reported that data delivered through IT has become the heart and soul of their business.

But Veeam believes leaders must move data protection beyond outdated legacy systems for real digital transformation to happen.

“Data protection is more important than ever now to help organizations continue to meet their operational IT demands while also aspiring towards DX and IT modernization,” said Mr Allan.

Data is often spread across data centers and cloud through file shares, shared storage and Software-as-a-Service platforms like Google Cloud, AWS, Alibaba Cloud and more.

Mr Allan believed that legacy tools designed to back up on-premise file shares and applications can’t succeed in the hybrid or multi-cloud world, as they cost companies time and money while putting data at risk.

The report by Veeam also discovered half of businesses recognise that cloud has a pivotal part to play in today’s data protection strategy. The Cloud Data Management provider argued that a company needs a comprehensive solution that supports cloud, virtual and physical data management for any application and any data across any cloud in order to achieve a truly modernised data protection plan.

What is the data protection situation like in Asia Pacific?

In Asia Pacific and Japan, the research by the backup solutions provider found that 22% of organisations did not back up their data, which is higher than the global average of 14%.

“Many CIOs are increasing their data protection efforts, but the reality is that systems can easily fall prey to unplanned outages. When this happens, organisations scramble to put their systems back online,” said Shaun McLagan, the Senior Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan at Veeam.

One in ten organisations also report an “availability gap” between how fast they can recover applications compared to how fast they actually need to recover them, and 90% have a “protection gap” between how frequently they back up their data versus how much data they can afford to lose after an outage.

Mr McLagan added: “To solve this, organisations should modernize their data protection solutions, which goes far beyond backup.”

Businesses are advised to prevent security breaches and ransomware attacks by having offsite and offline backups as well as adequate training for staff, particularly as cybersecurity threats continue to grow.

To prevent attacks, local governments should also advocate for legislation that ensures a strong culture of security like Malaysia’s National Cyber Security Policy.

Ben Chua, a young cybersecurity pioneer in Singapore, said during W.Media’s first Power Talk: “The only way we can do security well is to educate every single citizen of the nation where the whole nation becomes digitally resilient together.”

According to Veeam, ransomware and cyberthreats is the number one challenge faced by organisations, costing an average of US$80,000 to restore data.

The Veeam 2020 Data Protection Trends Report surveyed more than 1,500 global enterprises to understand their approach toward data protection and management. They were surveyed on how they expect to be prepared for the IT challenges they face, including reacting to demand changes and interruptions in service as well as more aspirational goals of IT modernization and digital transformation.

Google Cloud partners with XL Axiata to drive cloud migration in Indonesia

Google Cloud has entered into two strategic partnerships with XL Axiata to drive cloud migration and further digital transformation strategies in Indonesia.

As a leading telecommunications provider, XL Axiata aims to migrate 70% of workloads to the cloud within the next three years.

“XL Axiata is committed to the modernization of our infrastructure to get more business agility and increase application deployment velocity,” said Yessie D Yosetya, the Chief Information and Digital Officer at XL Axiata.

The Indonesian cellular provider will adopt Google Cloud’s Anthos to securely and consistently automate, manage and scale workloads across its hybrid- and multi-cloud environments.

Ms Yosetya added: “Anthos was a natural fit as it lets us adopt containers while letting Google, a leader in Kubernetes, manage our container infrastructure for us.”

The app modernisation platform known as Anthos will enable XL Axiata to extend its cloud capabilities across on-premise data centers and various cloud-based resources by using Google’s Kubernetes Engine.

“With Anthos, we’re providing a consistent platform for XL Axiata to deploy workloads both on-premises and in the cloud so they can accelerate their own digital transformation,” said Megawaty Khie, the Country Director of Google Cloud in Indonesia.

Transferring data between XL Axiata’s five data centers and Google’s global network

As part of the second partnership, XL Axiata has become a Google Cloud Interconnect Partner, which will bring high-speed connectivity, cloud services and digital growth opportunities.

Customers in Indonesia will be empowered to reliably transfer data between XL Axiata’s five data centers and Google’s global network.

Ms Khie said: “Our collaboration around Partner Interconnect will enable companies of all sizes in Indonesia to gain access to high-speed connectivity to create a whole new world of experiences for their customers.”

As part of the Interconnect partnership, Google’s Dedicated Interconnect service provides physical connections between XL Axiata’s data center network and the Google Cloud network through a private network rather than public Internet.

“This is indeed a win-win collaboration with XL Axiata,” celebrated Ms Khie.

A private network typically delivers ‘fewer points of failure where traffic might usually get dropped or disrupted and offers the added benefit of increased security and management functionality’.

XL Axiata also has plans to implement Google Cloud’s scalable data analytics platform to enhance customer experiences through data- and AI-driven technologies.

Leveraging on Indonesia’s cloud boom

Indonesia’s cloud market is booming, with a number of new hyperscale data centers announced by organisations, including Princeton Digital Group, Google, Alibaba Cloud, AWS and Microsoft.

“Service providers worldwide are embarking on transformation journeys centered on the cloud in order to drive new services, revenue opportunities and experiences,” said Ms Khie in a press release on Tuesday 9 June.

Indonesia is expected to experience investments worth over US1$ billion and an annual growth rate of 11% between 2019 and 2025.

Google’s Managing Director in Indonesia, Randy Jusuf, said the country’s ‘digital economy has become the largest in Southeast Asia’ and is projected to reach US$124.1 billion by 2025, triple the Rp 548.2 trillion it recorded in 2020.

XL Axiata’s partnership with Google Cloud looks to ‘serve the evolving needs of millions of companies across Indonesia’s rapidly digitizing economy’ by empowering cloud migration and digital transformation.

Last year, Princeton Digital Group, a leading investor, developer and operator of Internet infrastructure, acquired a 70% stake in XL Axiata’s data centers to give them a strong foundation to grow their business in Indonesia.

Following this acquisition, PDG looks to develop two new hyperscale greenfield builds that are slated to be ready by 2022.
