BT, DCI Indonesia, and Equinix, a DCI partner, announced that they are working together to provide private cloud infrastructure in Indonesia.

The companies said by using BT’s private cloud solutions as part of the BT Compute portfolio, enterprises active in Indonesia will now be able to reap the full benefits of the cloud to realise their digital transformation, launch new services more rapidly, mitigate risks, reduce costs and focus on business growth.

The combination of BT and DCI data center capabilities also enables international businesses expanding into Indonesia to accelerate market entry, as they no longer need to invest time and resources to set up their own data center infrastructure and deploy business critical applications.

Ron Totton, Southeast Asia managing director, BT, said, “Indonesia is a promising market for BT, where demand for private cloud and data center services is growing fast, especially in sectors such as finance, energy, and the telecom industry.”

“This collaboration with DCI builds on our Cloud of Clouds portfolio strategy and is aligned to our ambition to be the world’s leading cloud services integrator. This will help give BT customers a competitive advantage in Indonesia and beyond,” Totton said.

Through this collaboration, BT becomes the first global networked IT services provider to offer private cloud infrastructure in Indonesia. BT will be hosting its Point of Presence in DCI’s data center. By using the BT Private Compute platform, businesses can run a full range of applications, from network and storage to computing and security without having to invest into their own cloud infrastructure.

DCI Indonesia is the only tier-IV data center service provider in Indonesia providing the most stringent service level agreement of 99.999% uptime through dual configuration infrastructure that ensures redundancy.

Marina Budiman, president director of DCI, said “DCI is well-positioned to support the BT Private Compute platform.”

“With DCI’s fault-tolerant infrastructure, strong financial ecosystem and global interconnection through Equinix’s Cloud Exchange, we believe our collaboration will provide BT’s customers with the best-in-class service in Indonesia,” Budiman said .

Last year, BT was awarded the Siskomdat license, enabling it to offer its portfolio of networked IT services and applications directly to customers in Indonesia.

DCI Indonesia has zero history of downtime since the first time it serves the market. This exceptional performance comes from solid experience from industry players with more than 20 years of experience in information technology, data center services and infrastructure management.
