To support increasing demand for the digital services essential to powering businesses, Equinix, one of the world’s digital infrastructure companies, has announced its expansion to Indonesia with plans for an approximately US$74 million International Business Exchange (IBX) data center in the heart of Jakarta. 

Equinix will enable Indonesian businesses, as well as multinationals with a presence in Indonesia, to leverage its trusted platform to bring together and interconnect the foundational infrastructure to power their businesses.

Driven by rapid business digitalization and a substantial digital-savvy population, Indonesia has emerged as Southeast Asia’s largest digital economy in value and is expected to be a key hub of interconnection in the region. 

With major cloud service providers, such as Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Alibaba Cloud, launching cloud regions in Indonesia, the country is forecast to become the second-largest public cloud market in Southeast Asia. These trends collectively raise the need for increased digital services and data center services capacity in Indonesia.

Jeremy Deutsch, President, Asia-Pacific, Equinix said: “Our IBX data center in Jakarta will add a strategically important, high-growth market to Equinix’s extensive network of interconnected data centers across the world.”
