NTT Ltd announced the opening of its newest and largest data center in Indonesia. The hyperscale data center is located in Bekasi 30 kilometers from the heart of Jakarta.
Indonesia’s digital traffic has increased exponentially as a result of the surge in electronic transactions, systems, and digital content during the global pandemic. Combining that with the rapid growth of startup companies and the ever-increasing population, this increases demand for hyperscale data centers.
“The demand for data storage and managed hosting services is expected to grow dramatically across Indonesia. Jakarta 3 Data Center will accommodate the needs of clients, particularly cloud service providers and the financial industry, which require flexible facility designs to help them achieve their business objectives. NTT Indonesia already offers the Jakarta 2 Data Center, which attracts many service and content providers, and we can provide our local network services to and from our newly built Jakarta 3 Data Center. We hope to play a key role in providing vital data capacity at a high speed to keep Indonesia’s digital ecosystems and the digital economy ticking.” said Mizuho Tada, President Director, NTT Ltd. Indonesia.
The data center footprint expansion in Indonesia is part of the ongoing growth strategy by NTT’s Global Data Centers division, which operates one of the largest data center platforms in the world. Indonesia is emerging as one of the region’s fastest growing markets for data center space as a result of resource availability and government policy.
“NTT views Asia Pacific as a key region, and Indonesia has become a strategic location with the new APRICOT submarine cable system. Jakarta 3 Data Center will drive business opportunities in Asia through the upcoming APRICOT cable system that will be operational in 2024, linking all our large-scale data centers in the region. Our continued commitment to Indonesia will help position NTT as a technologically innovative leader to address the industries of the future,” said Masaaki Moribayashi, President and Board Director for NTT Ltd.
More power but more efficient
The four-story data center has 15.2 MW capacity of critical IT load and will grow to 45MW. It boasts a Tier IV ready compact and modular design to provide clients with flexible and scalable power. According to NTT, the implementation of cooling wall, the first of its kind, helps increase energy efficiency by 20% compared with conventional cooling methods supporting high density up to 15kW/rack.
Equipped with two power plants that supply electricity via distinct routes, data center power facilities, air conditioning and security power supplies, and communication facilities are all designed with a redundant system to ensure continuous uptime and data reliability.
