Edge DC currently operates one 6MW facility in Jakarta that opened last year. The company said it is “actively developing” other data center location opportunities as part of the company's continued expansion.

“This harmonious collaboration is a good momentum to support the development of digital infrastructure in Indonesia, especially related to data center development,” said BCA Director Rudy Susanto. “The financing we provide to Edge DC includes financing for the completion of the development of EDGE1 as well as for development plans at the next location. Through this collaboration, BCA also supports the growth of the data center industry in Indonesia.”

Edge DC Director Den Tossi Ishak added: “The expansion plan for the second Edge DC development shows the company's seriousness in supporting the growth of IT infrastructure in Indonesia. Edge DC will continue to be committed to providing credible and trusted data center services for customers.”

BCA is one of the largest privately-owned banks in Indonesia. Indonet started in 1994 as the first commercial private Internet service provider (ISP) in Indonesia. The company already has two data centers in Jakarta and South Tangerang.

Indonet and Edge DC were acquired by Stonepeak-backed Digital Edge in June 2021.
