Singapore headquartered data centre infrastructure developer and operator Princeton Digital Group (PDG) plans to spend US$150 million on a new data centre in Indonesia's capital, Jakarta.
The new 22MW data center, named Jakarta Cibitung 2 (JC2), will be built within the same 19,550 sq m campus that houses PDG’s existing data center JC1.
When completed, the expanded campus will offer 35MW of capacity to serve global cloud companies, domestic Internet companies, and enterprises, says PDG. JC2 is slated to be ready for service by Q4 2022.
Princeton Digital operates a broad data centre footprint across the APAC region, with 19 facilities in five countries, including a recently-announced 100 MW, $1bn flagship campus in Japan.
“The Asia Pacific region is set to be the largest data center market in the world, and this announcement underscores our vision to be the market leader in this region,” said Rangu Salgame, Chairman and CEO of Princeton Digital Group.
“Over the last four years, through our unique three-pronged strategy of acquisitions, carve-outs, and greenfield development, we’ve built a strong portfolio of data centers across key Asian markets such as China, Singapore, Indonesia, India, and Japan. PDG has become a partner of choice for hyperscalers across multiple countries. PDG’s growth in Indonesia demonstrates our continued ability to expand rapidly in markets that matter to our customers," Rangu added.
According to Structure Research, the Jakarta data center colocation market is still developing and the sector is expected to grow at a five-year CAGR of 23.7% through 2025. Jakarta is going to be a hyperscale market sooner than later.
