Digital Edge unveils 2nd site in downtown Jakarta

Digital Edge (Singapore) Holdings has made available its second facility in downtown Jakarta, known as EDGE2, which will be operated by PT Ekagrata Data Gemilang (EDGE DC). 

Equipped with advanced technology to cater to increased demand from hyperscale and artificial intelligence (AI) deployments, this facility has been designed to redefine standards in data centre connectivity and sustainability, bringing much needed critical data infrastructure capacity to support the growth of Indonesia’s digital economy.

Located in South Jakarta and less than 3 km from EDGE1, EDGE2 is touted as now the largest data centre in the metro area with a total IT load of 23 MW and more than 3,400 racks. 

EDGE2 offers access through a virtual campus to more than 50 network carriers and several Internet Exchanges already located at EDGE1, including Indonesia Internet Exchange (IIX) and Edge Peering Internet Exchange (EPIX), as well as four diverse main points of entry into the facility to further support interconnectivity and redundancy. 

The new facility is designed to provide highly reliable and secure IT infrastructure to meet growing demand from hyperscalers, global tech companies and various digital enterprises in Indonesia.

Samuel Lee, CEO of Digital Edge, said the new facility in downtown Jakarta further expands their presence across Southeast Asia, while bringing much needed capacity to one of the region’s fastest growing digital economies. 

“With its innovative and highly energy efficient design, we are confident EDGE2 is well placed to capture the growing wave of demand for the increasingly power-hungry AI and hyperscale deployments that continue to shape Asia’s digital infrastructure landscape,” said Lee.
