Microsoft invests in cloud data center in Indonesia

US software giant Microsoft in a February 25 news release announced that it will set up a data center in Indonesia which will host one of the company’s “cloud regions” in order to partake in the country’s digital transformation and its booming digital economy.

The Seattle-headquartered company said that it will be the single largest investment in the country in the 26 years that Microsoft has had a branch in Indonesia.

However, the release did not specify the amount of investment or whether the company would build such a center on its own or rent the respective space and equipment. It also did not disclose the potential location.

The establishment of the data center, which will comprise training facilities, is part of Microsoft’s “Berdayakan Ekonomi Digital Indonesia” (Empower Indonesian Digital Economy) initiative, the release said.

Training 24 million Indonesians

This long-running initiative aims at training no less than 24 million Indonesians in Microsoft-related digital tools by the end of 2021.

Microsoft’s new cloud data center in Indonesia is expected to generate up to $6.3 billion in new revenue from local customers and partners and to create 60,000 direct and indirect jobs for the local economy over the next four years, the company cited a study by IT market intelligence firm International Data Corporation.
