Tencent Cloud announced the launch of its first Internet Data Center (IDC) in Indonesia, further emphasizing its commitment to addressing the ever-growing business needs in Indonesia and Asia. Leveraging its robust data center infrastructures around the world, Tencent integrates cloud computing, big data analytics, AI, Internet of Things, security, and other advanced technologies with smart enterprise scenarios. At the same time, we provide a holistic smart enterprise solution for sectors including finance, education, healthcare, retail, industry, radio/television, transport, and energy.
Poshu Yeung, Senior Vice President of Tencent Cloud International, said, "With a population of 270 million, Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and the largest economy in Southeast Asia. Given that its population structure is younger, it has a huge internet demographic dividend, and its mobile internet market is quickly developing. We are excited to launch our first Tencent Cloud IDC in Indonesia, aiming to help fully reach the peak of the country's promising cloud computing potential. We are also proud of how the new IDC epitomizes our commitment to addressing current and future business needs in Indonesia and Asia, while strengthening our global network which now connects 27 regions and 61 availability zones."
By deploying its industry-leading cloud offerings across the region, Tencent Cloud further strengthens its global footprint through the significant launch of the new IDC—the latest addition to its growing infrastructure network that now spans across 27 regions and 61 availability zones.
According to Boston Consulting Group, Indonesia is one of the fastest growing public cloud markets in Asia Pacific, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25% that is expected to reach US$800 million by 2023. The new IDC in the country is positioned to fulfil the growing need for cloud services in Indonesia and in the region.
Tencent Cloud's latest IDC is now in full operation, completing the backbone access and networking of all major Indonesian and global internet services providers, and combines Tencent Cloud's own high-quality border gateway protocol to cover the entire country.
The launch of the IDC in Indonesia enables Tencent Cloud to be closer to its customers and users, reducing access delays to data and applications, and helping businesses and organizations in the country accelerate their digital transformation. It also helps customers meet regulatory and compliance requirements, providing more disaster recovery options in the whole APAC region.
The establishment of the new IDC will support the growing needs of a wide range of industries, from financial services, internet and e-commerce to entertainment, gaming, and education.
Aestron, for instance, offers an enterprise platform as a service for real-time communication (RTC) solutions, and has formed a strategic collaboration with Tencent Cloud leveraging Aestron's global market layout and Tencent Cloud's capabilities and ecological advantages. Utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Aestron's platform infrastructure helps companies reach more than 400 million monthly active users in more than 150 countries.
Currently, Aestron powers some of the world's most popular live-streaming, short-form video, and instant messaging apps. Tencent Cloud will join hands with Aestron, to launch new audio and video solutions, and provide quality services for the global market including Indonesia.
It seems to be a perfect match, considering in addition that Tencent Cloud is a secure, reliable, and high-performance public cloud service provider that integrates Tencent's infrastructure-building capabilities with the advantages of its massive user platform and ecosystem. Tencent Cloud provides global access and a rich array of services to governments and provides 24/7 security and infrastructure support.
Tencent Cloud's IDC in Indonesia attained certifications that prove its high-level safety and security standards, namely the Uptime Institute Tier III - Design & Facility, PCI DSS, ISO 27001, ISO 14001 and SNI (local standard), making it a good solution provider for organizations that need advanced infrastructure and a resilient environment, such as those in the online games, live broadcast, and financial services sectors.
