NTT Communications (NTT Com) announced its deal to acquire Cyber CSF, the largest data center service provider — headquartered in Jakarta — in Indonesia.
Cyber CSF, founded in 2012, operates a facility equipped for 24 MVA of power and 2,800 racks in 7,700 square meters of space in the heart of Jakarta.
The acquisition strengthens NTT Com’s Nexcenter data center capabilities in Asia Pacific, offering solutions in the fields of finance, IT and manufacturing. NTT Com plans to rename Cyber CSF as NTT Indonesia Nexcenter.
Cyber CSF data center is directly connected to an Internet exchange (IX) point used by multiple Internet service providers. The carrier-neutral facility is connected to 32 domestic and overseas carriers.
NTT Com, in addition to an existing point-of-presence (PoP) for its Global IP Network at the Cyber CSF data center, plans to establish a PoP for its Arcstar Universal One VPN network in October. It is the first foreign carrier authorized to operate closed networks in Indonesia through its joint venture subsidiary, NTT Indonesia.
The Indonesian ICT market is expected to average about 10 percent annual growth through 2017, exceeding growth in most other Southeast Asian countries.
Data center outsourcing in Indonesia is expected to expand beyond 2016, triggered by new laws and regulations, as well as administrative guidance by the central bank, Bank Indonesia, regarding data center quality and the use of such services by financial companies.
A IDC survey said most Indonesian banks expect between 10 to 20 percent data volume growth rate every year. It indicates that on average, Indonesian banks plan to increase their datacenter budget by 5-10 percent every year.
Currently, NTT Indonesia is building a domestic fiber network that will connect its new data center with other major data centers in suburban Jakarta, as well as industrial parks and office buildings.
