EdgeConneX recently announced the acquisition of GTN Data Center in Jakarta, Indonesia. This marks EdgeConneX ninth market in Asia as it continues rapidly building out its data centre platform in the region. Strategically located in Bekasi Cikarang, GTN has been operating a Tier 3 certified data centre since 2016. This 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 record.

This is a hot data center market with rapid growth and high demand for high quality and reliable digital infrastructure. The Jakarta greater region is forecasted by Structure Research to reach $650 million by 2026, with nearly 2/3 of it coming from hyperscale demand.

In a related transaction, EdgeConneX also purchased the land adjacent to the GTN facility in which it plans to build a 90MW data center campus. This move strongly positions EdgeConneX in the region to address hyperscale and other large-scale data center requirements.

“Our legacy is being able to successfully and quickly deliver data center infrastructure at the Edge, 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.” – Kelvin Fong, Managing Director (APAC) at EdgeConneX

“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. 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.” – Philbert Shih, Founder of Structure Research
