Jakarta | 25, September 2023 –Princeton Digital Group (PDG), Asia’s leading data center provider, today launched its 22MW hyperscale data center facility(JC2) in Greater Jakarta. Located in Cibitung, the campus is 35km from Jakarta’s Central Business District. The facility will deliver secure and scalable data center capacity to hyperscalers and enterprises, including large cloud, content, commerce, AI and fintech companies.
JC2 is designed for reliability and scalability, with energy efficient modular uninterrupted power systems and highly efficient chiller plants. It has achieved the rare feat of BCA Green Mark Platinum certification which requires high energy performance, resource stewardship and advanced green efforts. The data center campus is also the first in Indonesia to offer biomass powered capacity to its customers.
“Indonesia is one of the fastest growing economies in the world with a digital economy that is projected to exceed US$124 billion by 2025. Underpinned by favorable demographics, the country is witnessing ever-increasing cloud adoption, internet penetration and e-commerce growth. These tailwinds combined with and amplified by AI will drive accelerated demand in Indonesia,” said Varoon Raghavan, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder of PDG. “The launch of JC2 further solidifies our position as a leading Pan-Asia data center operator enabling sustainable digital infrastructure growth in all the markets we operate in.”
