"Entry into Indonesia gives EdgeConneX presence in three of the largest countries in the world outside the United States. Indonesia has strong demographics, a rapidly rising homegrown technology sector, and in-country hyperscale infrastructure, and it is early in the adoption curve for outsourced infrastructure services like cloud and data centers. Indonesia has a tremendous long-term upside, and Jakarta is central to this growth. Indonesia is home to all the major US and Chinese hyperscale clouds, and an emerging social media and webscale tier that will combine to create incredible volumes of demand for hyperscale data centers."
