Tencent Cloud’s internet data centre debuts in Indonesia

Tencent Cloud has launched their first Internet Data Centre (IDC) in Indonesia to address the ever-growing business needs in the archipelago and in Asia. 

The new IDC adds to Tencent Cloud’s infrastructure network that now spans across 27 region and 61 availability zones.

Located in the central business district of Jakarta, the facility 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 border gateway protocol to cover the entire country. 

The launch of the IDC in Indonesia enables Tencent Cloud to be closer to their 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 Asia-Pacific region.

“With a population of 270 million, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia,” said Poshu Yeung, SVP of Tencent Cloud International.

“Given that its population structure is younger, it has a huge internet demographic dividend and its mobile internet market is quickly developing,” said Yeung.

Also, 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 digital banking with partner firms like Bank Neo Commerce.

In the entertainment industry, the new IDC will support partners like music and entertainment streaming platform JOOX, enterprise platform as a service for real-time communication (RTC) solutions provider Aestron, Asian entertainment platform WeTV.
