How NTT DATA is Supporting Global Growth for Data Centres

NTT DATA is building a new data centre in Indonesia to support its growing digital economy, as part of its wider investment across the globe

NTT DATA, which is a global innovator of business and technology services, will construct a Jakarta 2 Annex Data Centre (JKT2A) in Indonesia, which is set to be built by early 2026.

This is part of the company’s larger Jakarta 2 campus.

JKT2A is designed to meet the needs of hyperscalers and enterprises to support the growing digital economy in Indonesia. This construction comes as part of NTT DATA’s US$10bn investment in data centre growth, which is projected to sky rocket between 2023-2027 in key markets across the globe.

The data centre of the future

The JKT2A data centre will support a planned capacity of 12 MW of critical IT loads and is located in central Jakarta, around 12 miles from Soekarno Hatta International Airport.

The seven-story JKT2A facility incorporates air-cooling systems, robust physical security measures and multiple redundant power sources to ensure maximum uptime and reliability.

The JKT2 campus boasts a huge network with connections to more than 150 telcos, internet service providers and fibre optic providers, and houses major cloud edges and financial services, including digital payment gateways.

It will also have multiple direct fibre connections to the larger Jakarta 3 Data Centre in Bekasi, a suburb of Jakarta.

Sustainable infrastructure for the future

The campus will have 100% renewable energy options for its clients, aligned with achieving NTT DATA’s net-zero emissions target for its own operations, including sourcing 100% renewable energy by 2030.

"The launch of the new JKT2A underscores our leadership position in the country, as we grow our global data centre footprint to meet the increasing demand," says Doug Adams, CEO and President, Global Data Centres, NTT DATA.

"We are ready to provide our clients with the flexible facility designs required to enable them to achieve their business objectives. As part of this, we are committed to delivering critical data capacity that supports the digital economy in Indonesia."

Meeting growing demands

NTT DATA's expansion in Jakarta with the addition of the JKT2A Data Centre complements its existing campuses, JKT2 and JKT3, reflecting the city's pivotal role in the Southeast Asian digital landscape.

Indonesia, boasting the largest population in the region, has witnessed a sharp increase in digital activity, fuelled by start-ups, e-commerce and content consumption, positioning itself as a prime market for data centre services.

With over 17 data centres across seven countries in the Asia-Pacific region, NTT's Global Data Centres division ranks as the second largest provider in Jakarta.

"The launch of Jakarta 2 Annex Data Centre is a significant step towards meeting the growing demands of our clients as they deploy next-generation AI solutions and expand interconnectivity throughout the region," adds Yasuhiro Kajiki, President Director, Global Data Centres, Indonesia, NTT DATA and PT NTT Indonesia.

"With the delivery of this new data centre capacity, we meet immediate needs while laying the foundation for future technological advancements and innovation. This initiative aligns with our commitment to foster robust digitalization in Indonesia and supporting economic growth, innovation, and connectivity."

From a networking perspective, JKT2A will serve as a hub for various networks, including NTT's Global IP Network (GIN), JKT-IX, and direct connections to major public cloud services, fostering a carrier-neutral environment for clients to leverage diverse network services.

Additionally, clients can access a range of ICT stack services, encompassing managed hybrid cloud, network management, and collaboration solutions.

As part of its global expansion strategy, Global Data Centres, a division of NTT DATA, recently announced plans for new data centre campuses in Europe (Paris and Berlin) and launched facilities in Noida and Chennai, India, further solidifying its position as a leading data centre provider worldwide.
