DCI Indonesia, a leading data centre provider in Indonesia, has opened the first phase of its second data centre campus outside Jakarta. H2 campus, as it is known, is sited on 791 hectares and has a total capacity of up to 600MW.
The first phase of the data centre campus, a 15MW building named H2-01, has ten floors, six of which are data halls with a total capacity of 3,000 racks. The data centre will draw renewable energy from solar farms in the same area. The campus reportedly already has two tenants.
DCI opened its fifth data centre, in Cibitung, West Java, in June. The company was also in the news in late October when PT Ekagrata Data Gemilang (Edge DC) a subsidiary of Indonesian ISP Indonet, launched its first data centre, known as EDGE1. The five-storey, 6MW facility can accommodate up to 1,300 racks.
Edge DC also said at the time that it had partnered with DCI Indonesia. Edge DC will adopt DCI’s platform in terms of infrastructure design and operational standards.
According to the Data Centre Dynamics website, DCI Indonesia’s CEO, Toto Sugiri, pointed out that, as EDGE1 and DCI are strategically located in different locations serviced by different power sources, this represents an ideal opportunity to serve as a primary and disaster recovery centre for customers or even as separate availability zones for cloud providers.
