Data Centre Opportunities In Indonesia
Indonesian data centre company PT Data Center Infrastructure (DCI) has opened a new facility in Cibitung, West Java. The location is an industrial complex, giving DCI and its partner Equinix a number of potential clients and is located close to the capital, Jakarta. The partnership was announced in October 2012, bringing data centre infrastructure and co - location services to the market . BMI believes data centres have considerable potential for consumers in emerging markets, with Indonesia's growing economy providing plenty of new opportunities.
Indonesia remains one of Asia's largest economies, with strong growth continuing in Q113 as GDP grew 6.0%. The country's strong growth and healthy outlook continue to attract international investment. DCI's new data centre, therefore, should find plenty of local and international customers. The data centre offers capacity of approximately 65,000 square feet with 1,250 cabinets available in the first phase of deployment. The data centre will also connect to a number of telecoms operators and carriers, allowing its users to create their own packages for their data centre needs.
While hardware remains the key component of Indonesia's IT market, it is the software and services segments that will see greatest growth over our five-year forecast period. The strong growth in hardware in previous years will underpin the demand for IT services. This will be further supported by increasing demand for internet services on both mobile and fixed networks.
