NTT adds to fleet new data centres in Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City

NTT is building its newest and largest data centre in Indonesia, the new Jakarta 3 Data Centre which is designed to meet the needs of hyperscalers and high-end enterprises amid rising demand for data storage and managed hosting services.  

Touted to be the largest in Indonesia, the four-story Jakarta 3 is expected to open by 2024, with a 15.2-megawatt capacity of critical IT load and will grow to 45 MW.

Jakarta 3 promises to provide clients with flexible and scalable power, and two power plants that supply electricity to ensure that they receive data reliability, and continuous uptime. 

With multiple security tiers, clients can expect to have access to a variety of network services including connectivity to major internet exchanges, high-speeds, large-capacity IP communication services, and high-quality, high-reliability VPN services.  

The announcement comes as Indonesia and other global markets see a significant increase in digital traffic resulting from the surge in electronic transactions, systems, and digital content during the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The expansion is part of the ongoing growth strategy by NTT’s Global Data Centre division, with Asia Pacific being a key region, and Indonesia being targeted as a key strategic location to link all of NTT’s large-scale data centres in the region.  

“Jakarta 3 Data Centre will accommodate the needs of clients, particularly cloud service providers and the financial industry, which require flexible facility designs to help them achieve their business objectives,” said Mizuho Tada, NTT’s president director in Indonesia.

“We hope to play a key role in providing vital data capacity at a high speed to keep Indonesia’s digital ecosystems and the digital economy ticking,” said Mizuho.

Also, NTT announced a collaboration with QD.TEK in a joint venture to launch Ho Chi Minh City 1 Data Centre, which is intended to  provide full-stack, full-lifecycle ICT solutions in Vietnam —one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. 

The five-story facility is also expected to open by 2024, and will provide stable and high availability services with a total of 6 MW of critical load capacity to support the growing digital transformation of Vietnam.  

NTT operates data centres in over 20 countries and regions worldwide, and following on from the capital city of Hanoi where NTT is already providing services, NTT will now develop its service location to the southern city of Ho Chi Minh City — which is considered the centre of the Vietnamese economy and is home to many multinational companies.

Together, NTT Global Data Centres (GDC) and QD.TEK intend to be able to provide full-stack, full-lifecycle ICT solutions and continue to promote socially significant initiatives that will lead the development of digital infrastructure in Vietnam.
