Digital Edge announces 23 MW data center in downtown Jakarta

Digital Edge (Singapore) Holdings has announced the availability of its second facility in downtown Jakarta, known as EDGE2, which will be operated by PT Ekagrata Data Gemilang (EDGE DC), a subsidiary of PT Indointernet Tbk (Indonet) and a Digital Edge company. 

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 center connectivity and sustainability, bringing much-needed critical data infrastructure capacity to support the growth of Indonesia’s digital economy.

Strategically located in Jl. Kuningan Mulia, South Jakarta and less than 3 km from EDGE1, one of the most interconnected data centers in Jakarta, EDGE2 is now the largest data center in the metro area with a total IT Load of 23 MW and more than 3,400 racks. Building upon the success of EDGE1, this state-of-the-art facility offers scalability and unparalleled connectivity options. This includes 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. 

EDGE2 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. Aligned with the company’s ESG commitments, EDGE2 combines robust data center capacity with eco-friendly features including renewable energy solutions and green building features that are on track to achieve LEED Gold Certification. In addition, innovative liquid cooling technology enables EDGE2 to cater to high power density deployments while also achieving a market-leading annualized PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) of 1.24, making it the most energy-efficient data center in the Jakarta metro.

Samuel Lee, Chief Executive Officer for Digital Edge, commented, “We are excited by the growth opportunities in Indonesia and this new facility in downtown Jakarta further expands our presence across South East 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.” 

Stephanus Oscar, CEO of EDGE DC, added, “We believe EDGE2 reflects our company’s commitment to excellence and innovation in the digital infrastructure landscape in Indonesia. The establishment of EDGE2 marks a significant leap forward, setting new standards and solidifying our position as a leader in the data center industry. EDGE2 is designed to meet the evolving needs of businesses as they adapt to our ever-digitized world, ensuring unparalleled security, reliability, and scalability of our customers’ mission-critical infrastructure.”
