Tencent Cloud, the cloud business of Tencent, today announced the launch of its first Internet Data Centre (IDC) in Indonesia, further emphasizing its commitment to addressing the ever-growing business needs in Indonesia and Asia. Deploying its industry-leading cloud offerings across the region, Tencent Cloud further strengthens its global footprint through the significant launch of the new IDC – the latest addition to its growing infrastructure network that now spans across 27 region and 61 availability zones.
As Indonesia is one of the fastest growing public cloud markets in Asia Pacific with a CAGR of 25 percent and expected to increase its market size to US$0.8 billion by 2023, the new IDC in the country is positioned to fulfil the growing need for cloud services in Indonesia and in the region.
Located in the CBD of Jakarta, Tencent Cloud’s latest IDC is now in full operation, completing the backbone access and networking of all major Indonesian and global internet services providers, and combining Tencent Cloud’s own high-quality border gateway protocol to cover the entire country. The launch of the IDC in Indonesia enables Tencent Cloud to be closer to its customers and users, reducing access delays to data and applications and helping businesses and organizations in the country accelerate their digital transformation. It also helps customers meet regulatory and compliance requirements, providing more disaster recovery options in the whole APAC region.
Poshu Yeung, Senior Vice President, Tencent Cloud International, said, “With a population of 270 million, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia. Given that its population structure is younger, it has a huge internet demographic dividend and its mobile internet market is quickly developing. We are excited to launch our first Tencent Cloud IDC in Indonesia, aiming to help fully reach the peak of the country’s promising cloud computing potential. We are also proud of how the new IDC epitomizes our commitment to addressing current and future business needs in Indonesia and Asia, while strengthening our global network which now connects 27 regions and 61 availability zones.”
The establishment of the new IDC will support the growing needs of a wide range of industries, from financial services, internet and e-commerce to entertainment, gaming and education, including:
