As part of their intention to expand their footprint in the promising landscape of Indonesia’s digital economy, the Singapore-based data centre provider Princeton Digital Group (PDG) has announced their plans for a greenfield development in Jakarta, Indonesia.
The new 22MW data centre, to be named Jakarta Cibitung 2 (JC2), is being built within the same 19,550m2 campus that houses PDG’s existing data centre – JC1. This expanded campus of 35MW is well-poised to serve global cloud companies, domestic internet companies, and enterprises with scalability, connectivity, and reliability.
According to Structure Research, the Jakarta data centre colocation market is still developing, and the sector is expected to grow at a five-year CAGR of 23.7% through 2025.
With 19 data centres split across 5 countries, PDG has developed a considerable footprint in less than 4 years since its inception. In addition to this, the company has recently announced an investment of $1 billion to open an additional 100 MW flagship data centre campus in Japan.
The greater Jakarta area is experiencing increasing adoption of cloud-based services, among consumers, businesses and the government. Indonesia is also home to some of the fastest-growing start-up companies of SE Asia.
“The Asia Pacific region is set to be the largest data centre market in the world, and this announcement underscores our vision to be the market leader in this region,” said Rangu Salgame, Chairman and CEO of Princeton Digital Group. “Over the last four years, through our unique three-pronged strategy of acquisitions, carve-outs and greenfield development, we’ve built a strong portfolio of data centres across key Asian markets such as China, Singapore, Indonesia, India, and Japan. PDG has become a partner of choice for hyperscalers across multiple countries. PDG’s growth in Indonesia demonstrates our continued ability to expand rapidly in markets that matter to our customers.”
“Jakarta is an exciting market, Cibitung being the pre-eminent cloud cluster in the region. With the expanded campus, PDG has become a significant player in the Indonesian market. With the explosive economic growth and rapid digitalization by both government and private sectors in Indonesia, the market is core to PDG’s strategy.”, added Stephanus Tumbelaka, PDG’s Managing Director of Indonesia.
