The first phase of the data center 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 center will draw renewable energy from solar farms in the same area.

The soft opening of the H2-01 building last week was attended by Axton Salim, Executive Director of Salim Group, DCI’s President Director Toto Sugiri, and Director of PT Data Center Indonesia Sukses Makmur (DISM), Ricky Garyati.

“The demand for data centers in Indonesia has increased dramatically in the last two years. Digitalization continues to grow rapidly with the adaptation of cloud computing that continues to increase, accompanied by school activities and work from home during the pandemic,” said Salim. “The H2 hyperscale data center complex was built against this background with eco-sustainable principles, namely by installing solar panel power as a source of electricity in the data center area.”

“The H2-01 building is the beginning of the H2 hyperscale area. This complex area can be built up to a capacity of 600MW,” added Axton.

DCI opened its fifth data center, in Citibung, in June.

Indonet’s Edge DC subsidiary recently announced a partnership with DCI Indonesia that will see it adopt DCI’s platform in terms of infrastructure design and operational standards.
