Equinix has announced plans to develop a $74 million data centre located in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Equinix has said the facility, which scheduled to open by the second half of 2024, is expected to comprise over 1,600 cabinets and more than 5,300 sqm of colocation space when complete. The site will also utilise sustainable technologies, such as cool array.
“Our IBX data centre in Jakarta will add a strategically important, high-growth market to Equinix’s extensive network of interconnected data centres across the world,” said Jeremy Deutsch, President, Asia-Pacific at Equinix said.
“Having a presence in Indonesia allows Equinix to provide digital infrastructure that enables local businesses to tap growth opportunities abroad and support global organisations looking to access the expanding Indonesian digital economy. We look forward to working closely with local authorities, network providers and the broader industry ecosystem players to help unleash Indonesia’s digital potential.”
Including its facility in Jakarta, Equinix has 50 current projects underway across 22 countries, including new data centre builds in Dublin, Montréal, New York, Paris and Warsaw. It has also announced an investment of $86 million to build Equinix’s third IBX data centre in Mumbai and an investment of $64 million for its first IBX data centre in Chennai.
