Princeton Digital Group is to build a US$150 million, greenfield data centre in Indonesia.

Jakarta Cibitung 2 (JC2) is a 22MW development that will sit on the same campus as JC1, taking the extended campus to 35MW as it capitalises on demand from global cloud companies, domestic internet companies and enterprises with unmatched scalability, connectivity and reliability.

“The Asia Pacific region is set to be the largest data center market in the world, and this announcement underscores our vision to be the market leader in this region,” said Rangu Salgame (pictured), chairman and CEO of Princeton Digital Group (PDG).

“Over the last four years, through our unique three-pronged strategy of acquisitions, carve-outs and greenfield development, we’ve built a strong portfolio of data centers across key Asian markets such as China, Singapore, Indonesia, India and Japan. PDG has become a partner of choice for hyperscalers across multiple countries. PDG’s growth in Indonesia demonstrates our continued ability to expand rapidly in markets that matter to our customers.

According to Structure Research, the Jakarta data center colocation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 23.7% through 2025 – further to which, PDG said Jakarta is "going to be a hyperscale market sooner than later".

Stephanus Tumbelaka, PDG’s managing director of Indonesia added: “Jakarta is an exciting market, Cibitung being the pre-eminent cloud cluster in the region. With the expanded campus, PDG has become a significant player in the Indonesian market. With the explosive economic growth and rapid digitalization by both government and private sectors in Indonesia, the market is core to PDG’s strategy.”

This latest project announcement followed the news in late June from PDG in Japan. There, the firm is developing a $1 billion facility, which it said is set to become one of the largest hyperscale data centres in Tokyo.
