EdgeConneX (R) Enters Indonesian Market with Plans for a Hyperscale Data Center Campus
HERNDON, Va., Apr. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

--Acquisition of GTN, an existing carrier-neutral data center, combined with 
development of adjacent plot of land, will form a 90MW data center campus

EdgeConneX (R) ( 
), the pioneer in global Hyperlocal to Hyperscale Data Center Solutions, 
announces that it will further expand its presence in Asia with the acquisition 
of GTN Data Center in Indonesia. This marks EdgeConneX ninth market in Asia 
that is either established or under development as it continues rapidly 
building out its data center platform in the region.  Strategically located in 
Bekasi Cikarang, part of greater Jakarta, GTN has been operating a Tier 3 
certified data center since 2016. GTN was established via a joint venture 
between Japan's Mitsui and local IT distributor and integrator, PT Multipolar 
Technology, which is part of Indonesian conglomerate Lippo Group. In addition, 
EdgeConneX has acquired a plot of land directly adjacent to GTN, allowing for a 
future hyperscale data center campus that could ultimately support more than 90 
MWs of capacity.

Having announced plans to build a pan-Indian data center platform through a 
joint venture, AdaniConneX, as well as announcing a strategic investment in 
Chayora, a leading data center operator in China, the acquisition of the GTN 
Data Center in Indonesia represents the 3rd major country in Asia that 
EdgeConneX has entered as part of its global expansion strategy.  GTN's carrier 
neutral facility supports over 50 customers in a nearly 7MW facility located in 
a secure area with reliable, scalable, and diverse power sources and a 100% SLA 

In a data center market that Structure Research forecasts will reach nearly 
$650 million by 2026, with nearly 2/3 of it coming from hyperscaler demand, 
Jakarta is another market in the region witnessing rapid growth driven by cloud 
adoption.  Providing high quality and reliable hyperscale digital 
infrastructure is essential to support the digital transformation of Indonesia 
and also help it serve as a regional gateway.  

"Our legacy is being able to successfully and quickly deliver data center 
infrastructure at the Edge," said Kelvin Fong, Managing Director (APAC) at 
EdgeConneX. "As we continue to expand both our Edge and hyperscale data center 
platform globally, the planned hyperscale data center campus in Jakarta will 
give us capabilities to meet our customers' requirements for capacity in this 
vital and growing market in the APAC region." 

"Entry into Indonesia gives EdgeConneX presence in three of the largest 
countries in the world outside the United States. This is a market with 
tremendous long-term upside. Indonesia has strong demographics, a rapidly 
rising homegrown technology sector, and is early in the adoption curve when it 
comes to outsourced infrastructure services like cloud and data centres," 
stated Philbert Shih, Founder of Structure Research. "The acquisition of an 
operating business and land plot fits exactly with what EdgeConneX is doing 
around Hyperlocal and Hyperscale. It can cater to local enterprises and service 
providers while having the capacity and runway to serve hyperscale clouds. 
Indonesia, unlike many markets in the world, is home to all the major US and 
Chinese hyperscale clouds, and this will create incredible volumes of demand 
for hyperscale data centers."
