Chinese cloud service provider Tencent Cloud has opened a new data center in Indonesia to tap the growing demand for cloud computing services in South East Asia’s biggest economy. Located in Jakarta’s central business district, the new data center is the latest addition to Tencent Cloud’s global footprint spanning 27 regions and 61 availability zones.
According to research from the Boston Consulting Group, Indonesia is one of the fastest-growing public cloud markets in the Asia Pacific region with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25%. This is expected to increase its market size to USD 800 million by 2023. Tencent Cloud itself sees significant growth for its online services in Indonesia, where its JOOX music streaming app has become the second most popular in the country.
The launch of the new data center in Indonesia enables Tencent Cloud to be closer to its customers and users, reducing access delays to data and applications and helping Indonesian businesses and organizations accelerate their digital transformation. It also helps customers meet regulatory and compliance requirements, providing more disaster recovery options in the Asia Pacific region.
