Indosat has signed an agreement with Dimension Data Indonesia to jointly offer an end-to-end portfolio of cloud computing services to its business and consumers in Indonesia under the “onecloud”framework.

With the partnership, Indosat aims to position itself at the forefront of Indonesia's cloud services market by leveraging Dimension Data’s expertise in cloud technology, service delivery and service creation.

By partnering with Dimension Data, Indosat was able to limit its up-front capital investment. Both companies will jointly run the offered services for an initial period of five years, with Indosat taking responsibility for sales, client management, and the data centre and network operations, while Dimension Data will be responsible for managing the “onecloud” services portfolio and operation, IT architecture, the cloud platform and maintaining their IT infrastructure.

The partnership will enable Indosat to launch its cloud services in a much shorter time span than would have been possible if Indosat had had to develop its own cloud infrastructure. With Dimension Data’s experience in providing and managing cloud services for BSNL in India, PLDT in the Philippines and Hutchison Global Communications in Hong Kong, Indosat was confident in Dimension Data's ability to implement the onecloud framework and has entrusted the entire infrastructure implementation to the company.

Dimension Data’s competencies and capabilities in cloud management and operation is further reinforced by the recent acquisition of OpSource, a Silicon Valley based company offering enterprise class cloud and managed services since 2002. OpSource brings a rich set of services, a secure cloud architecture, and extensive experience in cloud services that will meet immediate client needs - in addition to a cloud infrastructure which supports development and growth in this space.
